Contributer X Sister Veronica

Sire: Contributer

Dam: Sister Veronica

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 1 year old

Foaled: Aug 31st, 2017

Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

CONTRIBUTER was a brilliant racehorse for Godolphin in Australia, winning the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes and Group 1 Ranvet Stakes in successive starts in the Sydney autumn. CONTRIBUTER accounted for the classy types HARTNELL, TOSEN STARDOM and SILENT ACHIEVER in those victories, which secured his future at stud.

CONTRIBUTER was also a Royal Ascot winner in 2014 and joined the likes of DUNDEEL, ALPINE EAGLE, SO YOU THINK and TORONADO as sons of HIGH CHAPARRAL at stud in Australia.

This filly is a daughter of the dual New Zealand winner Sister Veronica, who is by the Spring Champion Stakes winner MAGIC OF SYDNEY. Sister Veronica’s other foal to race is a winner at 1400m and 2100m in NZ while this filly is closely related to dual Toorak Handicap winner SOLZHENITSYN and the Group 3 winner ZABISCO as well as the speedy BUNDLE OF THANKS and BUNDLE O’GOLD.

This filly has plenty of scope to develop into a lovely miler in the mould of her sire but there is plenty of speed in her pedigree to ensure she could show plenty of pace.
