Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing is never shy to secure the stock of a young stallion and the team offers this smooth-moving filly by speedster NOSTRADAMUS.

NOSTRADAMUS is a half-brother to the Group 1-winning stallion and successful sire STAR WITNESS and showed enormous ability as a young horse himself, scoring on debut as a two-year-old at Moonee Valley.

NOSTRADAMUS returned at three to win the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes, joining the likes of STARTURN, FOXWEDGE, DUPORTH and CHARGE FORWARD to win the feature before going on to stud.

NOSTRADAMUS was also a Group 3 winner in the Gold Coast Guineas late in his three-year-old season before training on to score another Group 3 win, this time in the RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) in Adelaide.

NOSTRADAMUS is a son of the champion international stallion MEDAGLIA D’ORO like Australian Group 1 winners VANCOUVERand ASTERNand promises to have a long breeding career ahead of him.

This filly is of the unraced RED RANSOM mare Red Rapture, who has produced the Group 3-placed Soho Ruby among two foals to race, who are both winners. Red Rapture is a half-sister to the Blue Diamond Stakes winner KNOWLEDGEand the Group 3 winner MASLINS BEACH out of the NSW stakes winner NEW ACQUAINTANCE.

Purchased for $45,000 at Inglis Premier Sale - click.

This filly’s pedigree has a supreme mix of speed and class all the way through it and she has duly developed into a real young athlete.
