Marseille (Excelebration ex Marlinka) won a decent 5F maiden at Newcastle today, on her 3 yo debut after previously being placed there as a two year old.

Marseille is a half sister to the Group one winning sprinter MARSHA (Prix de l'Abbaye), and the very useful winning sprint handicapper JUDICIAL.

The dam, MARLINKA (MARJU-BARALINKA) was a listed winning sprinter as a 2 yo, and was out of a BARATHEA half sister to both SOVIET SONG (5 x G1 winning Miler), SISTER ACT (dam of G1 winner RIBBONS), and AFFINITY (dam of the useful ZEST)

This is Elites very best family all descending from the SOVIET STAR foundation mare KALINKA.

We are truly blessed!  One of the best families in the business indeed!

MARSEILLE has a two year old half brother MAGISTRATE (by CAPE CROSS) in training with James Fanshawe.  He hasn't done much yet but what he has done has been done very easily.

MARSEILLE runs at Doncaster tomorrow (7.25).

Nothing so unusual about that, except I was intrigued to see the RP describe her siblings MARSHA (OR 116, G1 winner) and JUDICIAL (OR 107) as 'useful'!

Will be interesting to see how she handles the ground as the aforementioned pair like to hear their hooves rattle.
