Well Bred Stratum Filly Salutes

 In 2014

Well bred Stratum filly Witless is a three-quarter sister-in-blood to Golden Slipper winner Crystal Lily and broke her maiden at Sale on Tuesday.

Three year old filly Witless was resuming from a spell in the 1112 metre maiden and raced clear to win by three-quarters of a length for the Anthony Freedman stable.

The filly has obviously improved for the break having failed to place in three starts last preparation when tardy from the gates on each occasion.

A $150,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Michael Wallace Bloodstock from the Yarraman Park draft, Witless was bred by Tim Hughes and Ron Dufficy and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Fast Talker.

She is the third winner for Crystal Wit, a stakes-winning half-sister by Distorted Humor (USA) to Group I winner Crystal Lily and stakes-winners Amaethon and Crystal Web.
