First Foal for Outreach
Tara Madgwick - Sunday August 13
Widden Stud's Outreach impressed many broodmare owners at the stallion parades last year with his typically powerful bay Danehill line good looks and judging by his first foal, there will be a lot of happy breeders this spring.

Group III placed behind Golden Slipper winner Vancouver at his only race start, Outreach has been priced affordably at $7,700 and covered 136 mares last spring.

One of his first foals to be born is this lovely filly, the first foal of well related mare Queen of the Nile, who looks particularly well suited to a mating with Outreach.

Queen of the Nile is a placed half-sister to Caulfield Cup hero and six time Group I winner Mummify and also to the dams of Group winning fillies Ottoman (sired by Outreach's sire Exceed and Excel) and Take Pride (sired by his three-quarter brother-in-blood Reward for Effort).

"She is a lovely strong filly, well-marked with exceptional muscle, very much in the mould of Exceed and Excel and just what we had hoped for with Outreach," said David Merrick, Stud Manager.

As a full brother to Golden Slipper winner Overreach and three-quarter brother-in-blood to Group I MRC Blue Diamond winner and leading Victorian sire Reward for Effort, Outreach is bred in the purple.

The natural ability he showed in that one start before his career was cut short by injury would suggest Outreach could have easily added further Group I glory to his family, so breeders have a unique opportunity to access a horse of the very highest quality at a very reasonable fee.

Outreach stands again this spring at a fee of $7,700.
