A three-year-old filly called Liberty Island is the latest sensation in Japan and looks to be on her way to the fillies Triple crown.
Her fourth dam Condessa was by the French stallion Condorcet, who stood in South Africa.
Condorcet produced ten stakes winners, although seven were at Listed level, two at Gr 3 level and one at Gr 2 level.
His best contribution to SA bloodstock was probably as the broodmare sire of Clock The Rock, the dam of Equus Horse Of The Year Irish Flame.
However, there is nothing ordinary about Liberty Island, who is fast becoming the biggest Japanese heroine since Almond Eye.
