Blue Diamond Stud purchased Tisa River yesterday at the Tattersalls December Sale for 400,000gns, she will visit Decorated Knight in 2021.
The daughter of Equiano is a half-sister to two Breeders’ Cup winners; the Filly & Mare Turf heroine Iridessa and last month’s Mile hero Order Of Australia.
Iridessa was also a top-class two-year-old for Joseph O’Brien who won the Fillies’ Mile and later took the Matron and Pretty Polly Stakes at three.
Another half-sister, Santa Barbara, also looked smart when winning her debut at the Curragh earlier this year.
Senta’s Dream, by Danehill, is one of only two foals out of another Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf winner in Starine.
Blue Diamond’s Bloodstock Advisor Tony Nerses commented “When there is the opportunity you have to take it with both hands,” “A half-sister to two Breeders’ Cup winners is not something that you see very often and she will make a very nice addition to Decorated Knight’s first book next year. We are very glad to have her.”
