Horse Description:

Her sire FIGHTING SUN was unbeaten in two juvenile starts before injury ended his career when he was well in Golden Slipper markets. FIGHTING SUN is a young sire son of the brilliant galloper NORTHERN METEOR, who passed away early in his stud career but left us sire sons such as ZOUSTAR, DEEP FIELD and EUROZONE.

FIGHTING SUN covered his first book of mares in the 2014 breeding season and the response to his stock has been outstanding with his progeny fetching up to $165,000 in his first few offerings with many other top stables impressed by the sire’s yearlings this selling season.

This lovely mover is a daughter of the MONASHEE MOUNTAIN mare Darmasanda, a debut winner over 1100m in Tasmania before notching further wins over 1100m and 1200m, putting good speed into this filly’s pedigree.
