EPSOM ICON (Sixties Icon ex Hairspray).
Bay Mare, Born 22 March, 2013.
(not sold 9,500gns Y); second foal; dam 6f winner (inc at 2/AW; RPR 88), sister to 7f selling winner Collingbourne Ducis out of 1m AW winning half-sister to Listed winners Red Fort and Red Carnation.
The second foal from Norman Court Stud’s resident mare Hairspray, Epsom Icon was a revelation for her trainer Mick Channon.
After winning on her debut as a juvenile at Epsom, Epsom Icon took the Denford Stud Stakes (Listed) on her third start before crowning her three year old season with victory against her elders in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes (G3) on Derby Day at Epsom.
If nothing else, she underlines her sire’s capabilities of producing something extraordinary in terms of precocity and tenacity against all expectation.
