VINERY Foundation sire Red Ransom and celebrated broodmare Snowdrift, the combination that delivered crack filly Portillo has struck again in the shape of promising Cressfield filly Adelie.

The Kris Lees-trained filly kept her unbeaten record intact with a second straight win at Scone on Friday leading throughout from her outside alley to score in the 1000m the event.

Adelie debuted in the nation’s horse capital last year careering away fo an easy 1.5-lens win.

Her sire Red Ransom has produced more than 1000 winners including a total of 108 stakeswinenrs around the globe led by Australia’s own Horse of the Year, Typhoon Tracy.


Snowdrift meanwhile is rightfully regarded as a `blue hen’ mare with eight winners from her eight foals to race including stakeswinenrs Snowland, Portillo, Snippeton and the stakes placed duo of Snowden and Freeze.

Aside from it’s frequent ability to throw stakeswinners, the family is one of the most prolific sire families in the world notably Al Hareb and Vinery’s own Myboycharlie.

Red Ransom is himself an established sire of sires with his Group 1 2YO son Onemorenomore on the Vinery roster.
