Lot 93 – Elusive Butterfly x Gold Standard

Boland Stud - Lot 93

In the realm of thoroughbred excellence, where bloodlines merge with destiny, we present to you an exceptional offering—a filly of unparalleled promise and prestige. This filly, Lot 93, is a true gem, a daughter of the remarkable stallion Gold Standard, whose name resonates with success. Gold Standard, the Gr.2 Selangor Cup victor and offspring of the renowned sire Trippi, has ventured into his stud career with remarkable flair. His maiden crop of just 25 runners has already yielded an impressive 13 winners and four distinguished black-type horses.

Among the stars of his inaugural crop is the Listed Tattersalls Jamaica Handicap champion, Gold Poker Game. This phenomenal filly boasts a remarkable record, with victories or placements in nine of her ten starts. In her company stands the distinguished Gr.1 performer, Golden Hostess, who marked her presence with stellar performances in the Gr.1 Schweppes Majorca Stakes and Gr.1 SA Fillies Sprint. Hold My Hand, another promising filly from Gold Standard’s first crop, came tantalizingly close to black-type glory last season, securing third place in both the Gr.1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas and Gr.2 WSB Fillies Guineas. Moreover, Hold My Hand finished as a close runner-up in the 2023 Listed Cape Oaks. The talent of Gold Standard’s progeny shines brightly, with Star Coin, a member of the same first crop, even making an entry for the 2023 Gr.1 Betway Summer Cup.

But Gold Standard’s legacy doesn’t end there. His second crop, now at the tender age of three, has already unveiled its brilliance, with the promising fillies Golden Pacific and Royals leading the charge. It is with immense pride that Boland Stud introduces to you Lot 93—a filly destined for greatness. Her lineage is nothing short of extraordinary. She is the progeny of a dual-winning daughter of Equus Champion Elusive Fort, and her granddam is a victorious daughter of the legendary sire Captain Al. Her dam, Elusive Butterfly, is a product of the same Elusive Fort/Captain Al cross that produced the iconic July/Met champion, Kommetdieding—a horse whose charisma captured the hearts of many. Elusive Butterfly, who shares her sire with Gr.1 champions such as Lauderdale, Out Of Your League, and Siren’s Call, traces her ancestry directly to the illustrious matriarch To Her—the source of countless top-class fillies. This remarkable bloodline boasts such notable champions as Gr.1 winners Brave Mary (Allan Robertson Fillies Championship) and Takingthepeace (Gr.1 SA Fillies Classic), Gr.1 Thekwini Stakes runner-up Kailene, and graded stakes winners Fanzene (Gr.3 Magnolia Handicap) and Joan Ranger (Gr.2 Camellia Stakes—twice).
