Ivanhowe Dam In Foal To Golden Horn
Indigo Girl, the dam of last Saturday's Gr1 Doomben Cup winner Our Ivanhowe, has been confirmed in foal to last season's European Horse of the Year Golden Horn, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. Bred and raced by Gestut Schlenderhan in Germany, Indigo Girl was placed in the 2005 German Oaks before going on to establish a successful career as a broodmare. Apart from Our Ivanhowe, the 14YO daughter of Sternkönigs is also the dam of Gr1-winning hurdler Irving. Indigo Girl is now owned by Gestut Lindenhof which purchased her for just €12,000 at Baden-Baden in October 2011. Formerly trained by Jean-Pierre Carvalho, Our Ivanhowe was a dual Gr1 winner of the Grosser Preis von Bayern (2400m) and Grosser Preis von Bayern in Germany prior to his importation to Australia. Following his Doomben Cup success, trainer Lee Freedman confirmed that the 6YO son of Soldier Hollow will be spelled to prepare for the spring carnival in Melbourne.
