Eastern Aria puts Hazara Stud in limelight
Quite a few mares which have been bought by Indian breeders at Goff's breeding stock sales have been hitting the headlines through their progeny in Europe. The Sohna Stud Farm has been in the news both for the performance of its resident stallion Noverre's progeny in Europe as well as for its mares. Now it is the turn of Nirmal Singh's Hazara Stud Farm to hog the limelight through its mare Bhadraan whose progeny Eastern Aria has been winning a bagful of races. She won the Gr 2 DFS Park Hill Stakes over a staying course of 2900 metres for fillies and mares on Thursday.
Eastern Aria (right) gets the better of Rumoush.
The dam of four-year old filly Eastern Aria (Halling), Bhadraan is in India at the up and coming stud farm in Haryana namely the Hazaara Stud Farm. Badraan (Danzig) has a yearling colt by Sharmadal in India. She also has a foal by Rebuttal (Mr. Greeley). This year, Badraan has been covered by its new resident stallion, Dancing Forever (Rahy). India's leading bloodstock agent Gautham Kothwal was responsible for the purchase of Bhadraan.

Eastern Aria made it three wins from her last four starts, brushing aside a decent field to comfortably land her first Group 2 when taking the Park Hill Stakes by a length in battling fashion from Rumoush, with Meeznah a further length and three-quarters back in third.

The combative four-year-old bounced back to winning ways after a defeat in France interrupted a winning sequence that saw her land a Listed race at Newmarket, before following up in Group 3 company at Glorious Goodwood.

Settled in mid-field off a decent early gallop, Frankie Dettori was always travelling kindly on the 5-1 winner. Roses For The Lady took the field along at a fair clip, with Dyna Waltz and Polly's Mark taking close order and ensuring a strong pace.

The first three home sat next, all shadowing each other through the early stages. Turning for home it was apparent that the 2-1 favourite Meeznah was struggling slightly and not travelling as sweetly as her market rivals.

Entering the final three furlongs, it was clear Rumoush and Eastern Aria would be fighting out the finish, with both jockeys stock-still as their mounts pulled to the front of the pack.

Dettori decided it was in his interest to fully test the questionable stamina of his much-hyped rival, kicking on and stretching the field right out. However, Rumoush was able to go with Eastern Aria and at one stage even got her head in front.

The pair had a real battle inside the final two furlongs, with both leading at stages, but the game Eastern Aria began to get on top in the final furlong as her stamina kicked in, seeing off Rumoush rather easily by the line to win in the style we have become accustomed to with Mark Johnston-trained runners.
