Sepoy continued an exciting week with news that he will stand the coming season at Northwood Park in Victoria, the sale of his Stakes-placed daughter Acqume for A$750,000 at the Inglis Chairman's Sale and now another G1 courtesy of his three-year-old daughter Alizee.
All the brilliance she possesses was produced by Alizee when she breezed to a second Group 1 in the G1 Queen of the Turf Stakes and give her sire Sepoy another stakes win at Randwick on Saturday, 14 April.
The winner of the G1 Flight Stakes over the same 1,600m course last spring, Alizee came from near last at the 400m to gather in a top-class field of fillies and race away to score by two lengths.
After a brief forward move in the first 200m, jockey Glyn Schofield allowed Alizee to settle at the rear of the field where she relaxed perfectly and was ready to produce her renowned sprint when called upon.
“I know if I let her relax she’ll give me that great sprint – and she did just that,” Schofield said.
