Three-year-old Amalaura (Raven’s Pass) scored her second Stakes victory this season when taking the Listed Premio Nogara in Milan on Saturday, 21 May. Placed in Listed company as a juvenile, Amalaura secured a first Stakes win last month over a mile before dropping back in trip for today’s triumph.
Bred by Az Agr Capannacce Di Teodora Giorgi, Amalaura is out of the Stakes-placed Sakhee’s Secret mare Rabiosa Fiore. She is the best performer out of a winning half-sister to Ibn Malik, himself a Stakes-winning son of Raven’s Pass.
Raven’s Pass is the sire of 38 individual Stakes winners, with four top-flight winners including last season’s G1 Flying Five heroine Romantic Proposal and the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere victor Royal Marine. His G1-winning son Tower Of London, himself a Champion sprinter, is currently standing his second season on roster at Darley Japan.
Raven’s Pass has also begun to make a name for himself as a broodmare sire with his daughters producing G1 winners Mishriff and Saffron Beach.
