Ascot Stud’s G1 SA Classic winning sire Heavenly Blue is starting to fire on all cylinders, with the son of four times Australian champion sire Snitzel responsible for the very impressive recent winner Zinovi.

The latter, his sire’s very first winner when scoring at Turffontein back in April, made a big impression when he won a progress plate by nearly five lengths lately, and Zinovi looks a potential feature race contender in the making.

Heavenly Blue, whose daughter Amazing Colours also recently won, is also the sire of the very smart filly Three Rocks, a winner of four of her first five starts, and he looks a young sire with a bright future ahead of him.

Ascot will be bringing nine two-year-olds to the upcoming November Two Year Old Sale, with their draft including five lots by the aforementioned Heavenly Blue.

Ashley Parker has the following to say about a few potential standouts in Ascot’s draft:

Lot 19: Clever Candy f Heavenly Blue – Scented Ash
She is a strong, good quartered filly out of a Guineas winner from Legislates immediate family

Lot 26: Key News c Heavenly Blue – Silva Key
A racy scopy colt out of a six time winner from the famous Soho Secret family

Lot 79: Smart Horse c Heavenly Blue – Cupid’s Kiss
He is aptly named Smart Horse. A powerful, big strong colt out of a Jet Master mare whose second dam was a Gr3 winner from the family of Golden Thatch

Lot 114: Genteel f Quasillo – Girl On The Run
She is a Quasillo filly out of a Gr3 winning dam who oozes class and stands over ground
