22nd May 2012
Nice little win for ARCHINA at Chepstow this afternoon trained by Andrew Balding and ridden by David Probert. The 3yo filly won a Classified Stakes (7f) comfortably and can progress from this. Purchased as a first foal in utero by Allan Bloodlines after mating research, and foaled down at Barnane Stud Co. Tipperary after flying transatlantic, ARCHINA is by Arch out of a beautifuly bred Woodman mare CROSS YOUR FINGERS (pictured right and on Facebook and in our Photo Gallery shortly after Allan Bloodlines purchased her at Keeneland), full sister to champion 2yo and good mare GAY GALLANTA, being out of GALLANTA (dam of 12 winners) and half sister to GAY MECENE, LASSIE DEAR etc with AP INDY, DUKE OF MARMALADE and many others in the family.
