Two year-old filly Nous Voila, who is said to be aimed at the G1 Allan Robertson Championship following her smart debut win at Kenilworth on Tuesday, is certainly bred to be an above average sort.

Bred and raced by the Niarchos’ Jagessar Limited, she  is a daughter of the Varsfontein Stud based stallion Judpot, himself a product of champions A P Indy the Niarchos owned and bred Miesque (herself by the Niarchos champion Nureyev).

A consistently successful sire, Judpot is best known as the sire of Equus Champion filly Along Came Polly, G1 Golden Horseshoe victor Forest Indigo and G1 SA Fillies Classic/G2 SA Oaks winner Juxtapose.

Nous Voila, whose dam is by Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (also sire of 2018 Sun Met winner Oh Susanna), is out of Zosma –who was unplaced in three starts.

The regally bred Zosma, in turn, is out of French Champion 2YO Filly, and G1 Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Denebola (herself a daughter of champion US sire Storm Cat and fellow French Champion 2YO Filly Coup De Genie).

Coup De Genie, in turn, won both the G1 Prix Morny and G1 Prix de la Salamandre for the Niarchos family, and produced not only Denebola but also dam of Arc winner Bago and dual G1 winning sire Maxios.

She is a full-sister to champion 2YO and outstanding sire Machiavellian (sire of, among others Street Cry!) and half-sister to G1 Prix Jacques le Marois winner Exit To Nowhere.

Nous Voila traces back directly in female line to Natalma –the dam of Kentucky Derby winner, and arguably history’s greatest stallion, Northern Dancer. Natalma features as the sixthdam of Nous Voila.

This is the same family as 2017 G1 Victorian Derby/G1 Spring Champion winner Ace High.

(Other members of this illustrious family include smart South African gallopers Bouquet-Garni –who won the G1 SA Derby in 2009 and G3 Yellowwood Handicap queen Queen’s Bay).

Safe to say, should Nous Voila win a black type race during her career, she will be worth a bomb at stud!
