Gaius (IRE) - Sharp Walk (AUS) (Sharp Edge)

This mare is from one of the Stud's foundation mares, Sharp Walk. Eminent Walk's second dam, Fairy Walk, not only was the Top Filly on the Aust. 2YO Free H., but has established a dynasty that includes Cheyne Walk, Jubilee Walk, and the dams of Country Walk, Broadwalk Angel (the dam of Coogee Walk), and Old Man and Crawl. Eminent Walk left the stakes winner Tehama (Centaine), she then foaled a bay filly in 2001 to the Group 1 winning son of Nureyev in Fasliyev, who became the Group 3 performer Darcybee. Two of her foals to go through the Karaka auction ring were her 2003 colt by Black Minnaloushe, now named Maloushe and a winner over 1600m, and Lord Pyrus (by Pyrus) sold as a weanling in 2006, who has gone on to win at Group 3 level in Australia.
