Pedigree Update: This filly is a close relation to exciting three-year-old Stakes-winning filly, The Gift. Winner of the recent Listed NZB Insurance Stakes, The Gift has won four races and notched up second placings in two Guineas features.
The Gift’s dam, Trust, is a half-sister to Dazzling Lady; the dam of this filly.
Sticking to DGR’s policy of buying the best progeny of Group One producing sires, this beautiful filly is the complete package. She’s a physical athlete and received the endorsement of our highly qualified and critical team. The video featured above of her parading is a joy to watch and showcases her overall athleticism.
Purchased for NZ$200,000 from Beaufort Downs Karaka Book 1 draft, she is the second foal out of the sprint-winning Lonhro mare Dazzling Lady. Not only is this filly’s damsire Lonhro a leading broodmare sire, he has already combined with So You Think to produce Group winner and multiple Group One placegetter So Si Bon.
Her sire So You Think is a proven producer of dominant Group One winners including; G1 Surround Stakes winner Nakeeta Jane, G1 Australian Derby winner Quick Thinker, G1 Rosehill Guineas winner D’Argento, G1 NZ 1000 Guineas winner La Bella Diosa, G1 SAJC Oaks winner Sopressa and G1 Randwick Guineas winner Inference.
This filly hails from a family renowned for producing racetrack stars such as Hong Kong Horse of the Year Fairy King Prawn, G1 VRC Salinger Stakes winner Easy Rocking and multiple Group One-winning sprinter in Australia, Cosmic Endeavour. This filly could quite easily be the next in the esteemed family.
She will be trained by premiership-winning trainer John Sargent who has an excellent Group One record, especially with Classic fillies. Think Big Stud have already signed up to race a portion of this filly and DGR have limited ownership opportunities remaining so please get in touch with Duncan for more information.
