bloodstock briefing: Trio of freshman sires are soon among the winners.

Byline: rachel pagones

FRESHMAN sires Docksider, Gold Away and Stravinsky have all had their first winners. Docksider's son Who's Winning answered that question decisively in a

five-furlong maiden at Folkestone on April 4 on his debut. The chestnut colt is out of the Robellino mare Quintellina and is a

half-brother to juvenile winners Nuttley King and Roman Quintet.

Gold Away's only British/Irish runner to date, Alexander Goldrun, won at The Curragh two days later on her second visit to the racecourse. She is a half-sister to Group 3 Prix de la Jonchere winner Medecis, now in his first season at the Irish National Stud. Medicis was also runner-up in two Group 1 events - the Poule d'Essai des Poulains and the Prix de la Foret. The pair are out of the Listed French winner Renashaan, by Darshaan.

Stravinsky's first scorer is similarly well bred. Named Korsakoff, the Michael Tabor-owned colt is the second foal from the Grade 1 two-year-old winner Love Lock, by Silver Ghost. Korsakoff won a four-and-a-half-furlong maiden at Keeneland this month.

Meanwhile, Daggers Drawn recorded his third win from eight turf runs when his daughter Lady Killer notched her second victory at Thirsk on Saturday. The second foal out of the Deploy mare

Dee-Lady, Lady Killer made all in the five-furlong event.
