Big Bad Bob represented by first winner

AFTER finishing either second or third on each of her six career starts, juvenile filly Bada Bling finally shed her maiden tag – and broke her sire Big Bad Bob's duck in the process – in the 7f maiden at Dundalk this evening.

Bada Bling and Big Bad Bob were both bred by Windflower Overseas Holdings.

However, whereas the sire carried his breeders' familiar red, yellow and white silks to eight victories, including the Autumn Stakes at two and a Baden Baden Group 3 race at three, his daughter was sold at Tattersalls Ireland last year for €1,600.

The filly, the second foal out of the nine-year-old Charnwood Forest mare Kristal Dancer, now races in the colours of Anamoine Limited and is trained by Ger Lyons.

A son of Bob Back, Big Bad Bob stands at Islanmore Stud in Croom, County Limerick, and his fee is on application. From five runners to date, he has had one winner and three placed horses.

He is the sire of a filly foal out of Cara Fantasy, the dam of Elusive Pimpernel and Palavicini, who provided owner-breeders Windflower Overseas Holdings with a notable double at the York Ebor meeting by winning the Acomb Stakes and Strensall Stakes.
