Heeraat records first winner in same race won by Tiggy Wiggy
Mick Channon's filly Cotubanama is one for the notebooks
Mickley Stud toasted the first winner for its resident stallion Heeraat on Sunday when the Mick Channon-trained filly Cotubanama landed a 5f conditions stakes at Salisbury.
Among the past winners of the race are Tiggy Wiggy, who went on to land the Cheveley Park Stakes, and Zoffany's daughter Illuminate, who followed up in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot on her next start.
Bred, owned and trained by Channon, Cotubanama has rewarded her handler's faith after she did not sell for 2,500gns as a foal.
She is the second of three foals out of her dam Saona Island. Her three-year-old half-sister and yearling half-sister are both by Sixties Icon, who stands at Norman Court Stud at a £5,000 fee.
With 71 foals of racing age, Heeraat also has the exciting colt Molaaheth, who Shadwell have in training with Richard Hannon after acquiring him for £150,000 at last year's Goffs Premier Yearling Sale.
Heeraat, a nine-year-old of Dark Angel, stands at a £5,000 fee at Mickley Stud in Shropshire.
