The Annabel Neasham-trained Lady Laguna was on debut in the BBHT QTIS Two-Year-Old H. at Eagle Farm, following a fourth-placed trial at Randwick in late October. Ridden by Ryan Maloney, the filly jumped from the outside gate and overcame an awkward position to produce a strong finishing burst, scoring victory by 0.5l.

By super-sire I Am Invincible, Overshare’s own racing career featured three wins, headlined by the G3 Zeditave Stakes and the Listed McKenzie Stakes. He finished second in the G3 Manfred Stakes and was fourth in the Blue Diamond Preview and the Rosebud. Only two of his 12 starts were outside black-type company. He commenced his stud career with us in 2018.
Overshare’s dam, Savannah’s Choice, is a half-sister to Cesario, the Champion Japanese 3YO filly. Cesario is the dam of stakes winners Leontes, Saturnalia and Japan Cup winner Epiphaneia, to whom Champion mare Almond Eye is currently in foal.
A private purchase for OTI Racing, Lady Laguna is out of the three-time race winner and Encosta De Lago mare Catalina De Lago (USA). She is the dam of three foals, the unraced Orizaba, and a Bolt D’Oro yearling filly. The family also includes G2 Edward Manifold S. winner She Will Be Loved, the Group 2-placed Thorn Dancer and Top Australasian 3YO Filly Lucia Valentina.
We’re looking forward to following the career of Lady Laguna and seeing more of Overshare’s first season progeny hit the racetrack.
Overshare (I Am Invincible x Savannah’s Choice) stands for $11,000 (inc GST) in 2021. He is Breed Secure and VOBIS Sires eligible.
