Sizzling x Startling Pleasure | Brown Filly



Raised at the admired Queensland nursery Eureka Stud, this filly has all the traits that will produce precocity and longevity on the race track. Blessed with a great temperament, this daughter of Sizzling has good bone, lovely muscle definition, depth of girth, and is tremendous mover.

She’ll be perfectly matched with leading 2YO powerhouse Lindsay Park, who have an exceptional record with this style of filly. An early running, affordable filly that you’ll fall in love with the moment you see her in the flesh.


Sizzling is a 2 year-old Group 1 winning  son of the all-conquering Snitzel. He was a super fast pre-Christmas two-year-old who had the class, precocity, and constitution to win 5 races (and 2 seconds from 8 starts) in his juvenile year including the Group 1 BRC TJ Smith. He then further demonstrated his toughness by going on to win the G2 Queensland Guineas at 3.


At stud, Sizzling is building some great momentum with his first crop of runners. In fact, he sits second on the first season sires list on account of number of runners, and number of winners, behind Eureka Stud’s freakish young sire Spirit Of Boom.


This filly’s dam Startling Pleasure had abundant speed winning 3 races (twice as a 2 year-old) from 800m-1100m. She then had the talent to train on and be runner-up over 1600m in the Listed Sunshine Coast Guineas at 3. At stud, her first foal, Shipwrecked, has earned $120k to date and has been ultra-competitive at stakes level. This particular mating with Sizzling has been a very clever one of a sire and dam with similar traits, and as a result it has produced a filly with a great blend of attributes.


Further down the page, her 3rd dam is Group 1 winner Sandy’s Pleasure, who also produced the dams of 4 stakes horses. It’s a pedigree perhaps best described as a running family with a lot of class.
