Sire: Flying Artie
Dam: Sadler's Wish
Age: 2YO Ready 2 Race
Trainer: Ciaron Maher & David Eustace
This filly has a double cross of European Champion Sire, SADLER’S WELLS. The filly looks like the flying machine NOT A SINGLE DOUBT who was a Champion Sire. She was rated an A by David Mourad (Racing Manger) upon inspection at the sales. Also picked by astute Bloodstock Agent, Sheamus Mills. The filly is a good size and moves very well. She is a nice filly and shouldn’t take time. Above all she was also selected by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace and was noted on their short list, so all three main judges gave her a big tick of approval. They all love her.
The filly also looks like a sprinting type, as her pedigree suggests, with her dam, Sadler’s Wish producing sprinting types, one by Unencumbered and the other by Super One. It’s very likely she’s a sprinter, who may potentially stretch out over a little further in time. But certainly, a springing type.
Below are comments from our tough judges.
David Mourad (BBT Racing Manager) comments: Lot 468 lovely Flying Artie filly out of Sadler’s Wish. Fantastic for us getting our first Flying Artie into the stables, he’s doing such an incredible job at stud. In his first season he produced a Blue Diamond winner in Artorius. She’s a neat, very well put together filly. She moves well, very athletic. I think like a lot of the Flying Artie’s she can get up and make some sort of a 2YO. She definitely will train on but she’s got a beautiful nature, as you can see here. Consequently well purchased, Ciaron Maher & Dave Eustace, she’ll get every chance and we’re very excited to have her.
David Eustace (trainer) comments: Lot 468 bought in conjunction with Blueblood Thoroughbreds. Flying Artie filly out of a Not A Single Doubt mare. A great broodmare sire, Not A Single Doubt. I thought she had a lot of Not A Single Doubt running through her. Early foal, she should be racing as a 2YO, getting up and going reasonably early but she’s going develop as well into a 3YO. The sire is very underrated, he’s going to start having really good results and improving results on the track. We’ve also gone in again and it’s great to race with Blueblood’s once again.
Sheamus Mills (bloodstock agent) comments: Here we are with Lot 468 the Flying Artie filly. What attracted me to this filly is she’s out of a Not A Single Doubt mare and she’s got a heap of Not A Single Doubt about her. She’s a willing sort of walker and really wants to please you. Every time she turned the corner, she’d just lower her head and away she goes again, and I thought that she had the attributes of her dam sire, Not A Single Doubt by a good stallion Flying Artie who is doing a good job, Artorius amongst them.
Our filly passed 100% clean on her scope, x-rays and clinical examination.

Trainers: CIARON MAHER & DAVID EUSTACE
Ciaron Maher took his first tentative steps in racing as a teenager, working with a trainer after school each day. He was an apprentice jockey with Peter Hayes in Adelaide and Melbourne before becoming an accomplished jumps jockey, competing in Australia versus Ireland jockey challenges and riding in England, Ireland and Dubai.
In 2005 he established himself as a trainer in Warrnambool, home of jumps racing. His first winner was Spectacular Storm in a hurdle race at Terang, followed up smartly by another win at Sandown. The stage was set for a successful career not only in jumps racing, but also on the flat as the stable grew. Ciaron Maher has since moved to Caulfield, where he has expansive stables on the course. He has retained facilities in Warrnambool, which suit horses in need of a country setting, and has secured new premises at Randwick. At his property in Pakenham, on the edge of Melbourne’s suburbs, he has agistment and pre-training facilities.
A young trainer with an eye for picking winning prospects at yearling sales, he has built a stable of loyal owners as well as successful horses. He welcomes first-time owners as well as experienced racing hands. He is regarded as hard-working, thoughtful and, above all, patient. His promise is that every horse will be given every chance to develop its full potential.
Ciaron Maher discovered the thrill of Group 1 success in 2007 with TEARS I CRY winning the VRC Emirates stakes at Flemington.
Black type races have flowed since then, SRIKANDI winning the Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap and the Group 1 Sky Racing Tatts Club Tiara, SET SQUARE winning the Group 1 Crown Oaks, and the following year, JAMEKA winning the Group 1 Crown Oaks including the Group 1 BMW Stakes and the Group 1 Caulfield Cup not forgetting LOVING GABY (by I Am Invincible) winning the Group 1 William Reid Stakes in 2020.
