CHIMEARA
Danehill (USA) - Tristalove (Sir Tristram)

Group placed Chimeara, a full sister to the Group 1 winner Viking Ruler (Danehill), comes from one of the best Australasian families with her dam Tristalove (Sir Tristram) a Group 1 winner; her second dam Diamond Lover a Group 1 winner; and her third dam the champion mare Eight Carat. By champion sire Danehill, Chimeara joined the Pencarrow broodmare band in 2001. Her first foal is Group 1 winner De Beers (by Quest For Fame), that sold for $750,000 at Karaka as a yearling. She is believed to be in foal for the 2013 season to triple-Group 1 winner Rip Van Winkle.
