AWESOMENESS is the name of a filly we bred in The Alado Project and sold as a yearling to Bass Racing who also bought other Alados from us.

Now a 2 year old, she won on debut today at Scottsville under an excellent ride from top jockey Anton Marcus.

AWESOMENESS is owned by the Trademark Syndicate (5 2 year olds including 2 x Alado) in which The Alado Project took a share to reciprocate the support. First runner first winner. Easy!

Breaking moderately, the filly seemed sluggish as if, understandably, not knowing what to do. However Anton pulled her wide and with 400 of the 1000 metres to go, Awesomeness found a stride and made up a 5 or 6 lengths deficit, catching the leader on the line and winning by a neck.

She is the third Alado sired winner out of the mare, Carolina Moon by Cadeaux Genereux, the others being the 5 x winner and stakes palced HALF MOON HOTEL and recent 3yo winner MOON BIRD.

After several years of development at Hemel ‘n Aarde Stud, the Alado Project has been producing better and better individuals from good matings.
