Epaulette X Kathern

Sire: Epaulette

Dam: Kathern's Cat

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Nov 9th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Australian speed meets a quality international pedigree in this cracking filly by Golden Rose winner EPAULETTE.

EPAULETTE was a terrific three-year-old, claiming the Group 1 Golden Rose in the spring before returning in the winter to beat the older horses at weight-for-age in the Doomben 10,000. A son of the wonderfully versatile stallion COMMANDS, EPAULETTE had a super temperament and durability that he has already started to pass on to his stock in a manner like his three-quarter brother HELMET.

Epaulette has made a terrific start to his stud career with a two-year-old Group 3 winner MERYL in his first racing crop while the stakes-placed Khulaasa and River Bird have been competitive with the better two-year-olds.

The filly is out of KATHERN’S CAT, a Canadian stakes winner that was sharp enough to win twice at two and her three foals to race have all been winners with two Catenaccio and Ruby Sea notching city victories.

The dam’s side of this filly’s pedigree is packed with US speed with the dam’s sister LIGHTS OF BROADWAY a stakes winner over five and six furlongs (1000m – 1200m) and the family has been successful as far away as Panama!

This filly is nominated for the Super VOBIS scheme and looks to have the scope to race at two but develop into a lovely three-year-old.
