One to Watch - Canterbury
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 6 July 2017
She’s from the last crop of foals by champion sire Encosta de Lago and she’s the last foal of a stakes-winning daughter of legendary sire Bletchingly making this filly a very valuable breeding prospect for her owners Canning Downs Stud.

Trained by John Thompson, two year-old filly Tennessee Tango opened her account at Canterbury on Wednesday when scoring a narrow win over 1200 metres at her second run back from a spell.

Encosta de LagoIt was just the third start for Tennessee Tango, who was unplaced on debut back at Warwick Farm in February on a wickedly heavy track in a race won by expensive Snitzel colt Dracarys in driving rain.

Bred and retained to race by Canning Downs, Tennessee Tango is a half-sister to Group II winner Trezevant and is the eighth winner from takes-winner Tennessee Magic, a full sister to stakes-winner Tennessee Morn, the dam of Group I winner Malaguerra.

Encosta de Lago will claim his second Champion Australian Broodmare Sire title at the end of the season having sired the dams of winners of over $17.9 million in prizemoney.

His daughters are in hot demand by stallion owners and a filly such as Tennessee Tango is a highly desirable commodity that will be a lovely future partner for a wide range of our best commercial sires.
