Queen’s Rhapsody’s dam Spurs and Sashes has already produced Four runner for four winners of multiple races including full sister Sonora a four time city winner and exciting half brother Boston Rocks. Flying Spur’s remarkable effectiveness as a broodmare sire is evident in 76 stakes winners to date, featuring Group 1 winners Preferment, Delago Deluxe, Sebring, Speak Fondly, Headway, Grand Journey and Shillelagh. He has been a top 10 fixture on the Australian Broodmare Sires’ Premiership for the past nine seasons and is currently fourth, with $104 million and 10 stakes winners headed by Pierata (Stallion Yulong Stud). Queen’s Rhapsody was offered by one of Australasia’s leading nurseries in Segenhoe Stud who in recent years have produced Group 1 winners including Oohood, Manuel Eagle Way, Voodoo Lad, Merchant Navy and Kings Legacy (both stallions now at Coolmore Australia). She was presented at the Inglis Easter sale 2023, a sale that has produced 31 G1-winning graduates since 2018, eight could have been purchased for $200,000 or less just like Queen’s Rhapsody, including the likes of Mizzy, Exceedance, Aristia, Land Of Plenty, Zoutori, Nettoyer, Quick Thinker and Funstar. Queen’s Rhapsody was a beautiful, elegant filly who oozed class. She was a strong, forward filly, well-proportioned and carried herself very well. She was a real standout from the minute we laid eyes on her and from a proven nursery we have had success with previous.
She is trained by David Pfieffer in Warwick Farm, Sydney. David is a regular in the NSW trainer’s premiership for the last decade or so and operates at a fantastic strike rate, he is complimented by fantastic state of the art facilities
