Hollywood Park: Royal Heroine Stakes (Grade 2), 1mT

QUIET OASIS (4 f Oasis Dream - Silent Heir by Sunday Silence)

Bred by Breeding Capital Plc and Swettenham Stud in Ireland

OASIS Dream appears to have another representative capable of holding her own at the top level in the US in the former Brian Meehan-trained Quiet Oasis, the winner of Saturday's Royal Heroine Stakes at Hollywood Park for Ben Cecil.

Restrained at the rear of the field by Mario Gutierrez, Quiet Oasis swept through the field to deny Mega Dream by a head. It was the second Graded stakes victory for J. Paul Reddam's filly following her success in the Grade 3 Wilshire Handicap in late April.

Her emergence as one of America's leading turf fillies comes two seasons after another daughter of Oasis Dream, Tuscan Evening, landed the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes. Juddmonte's Oasis Dream is the sire of 56 stakes winners overall, among them nine at the top level including this season's Irish 2,000 Guineas hero Power.

Quiet Oasis was bred by Breeding Captial Plc and Swettenham Stud out of the Sunday Silence mare Silent Heir, an Australian-bred granddaughter of champion Park Express - the dam of New Approach and Dazzling Park  - who was trained by Jeremy Noseda to win a Redcar maiden. 

Silent Heir previously worked with Oasis Dream to produce the Group 3 Prix la Rochette winner Young Pretender while she is also the dam of minor juvenile winner Rumool (by Exceed And Excel).

Silent Heir was sold to Australian agent Tim Stakemire for 320,000gns at the 2010 Tattersalls December sale while carrying to Sea The Stars, and has a yearling colt by that sire.
