Horse Description:

FIGHTING SUN, like another top young stallion ZOUSTAR, is a son of the brilliant speedster NORTHERN METEOR that is making waves in the first-season sire ranks.

Unbeaten in two starts, FIGHTING SUN has stamped his progeny with his own quality and precocity, which has already produced the stakes winner CHESS STAR and the Group 3-placed Platinum Mam’selle among his five winners in his first crop to date with a few months of the season remaining.

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra have a couple of two-year-olds by the stallion that have impressed them enough to chase more of the sire’s stock in the 2018 yearling sales season.

This filly has a combination of FIGHTING SUN’s speed and the staying strength of the SHINKO KING stock through her dam Tenko, a stakes-placed winner of three races between 850m and 2100m.

Tenko has produced three winners from as many to race in New Zealand while this filly is related to Group 1 Doomben 10,000 winner MUSIC MAGNATE as well as Group 2 Emancipation Stakes winner SWORN TO SECRECY and Group 2 AJC St Leger winner CHALEYER.
