Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing supported the FIGHTING SUN stock last season and liked it so much – they bought another one by the young stallion.

FIGHTING SUN, a son of the star galloper NORTHERN METEOR, retired unbeaten after two starts but has started his stud career in strong fashion with his daughter Platinum Mam’selle notching a Group 3 placing and a city win while the sire’s stock Naduri and Sunfighter have also notched wins from only 11 of the stallion’s runners.

The colt is out of the seven-time winner Signoret, a daughter of the European Group 1 winner ANABAA, who has already produced the two-year-old winner Zelsignoret. The youngster’s second dam JAMEELA was a Group 2 winner in South Australia, who also produced the 13-time winner El Tegra.

Prolific winners run through this colt’s pedigree, which also features some stout staying blood, including the Group 3 winner JEUNE’S MARK, 13-time winner and Group 3-placed Liquid Lunch and the nine-time winner Silk Wind.

ANABAA’S daughters have produced brilliant performers such as BUFFERING, DISSIDENT, HARTNELL and ENGLISH as well as the champion dual Arc winner TREVE.

This striking individual is Victorian-bred and has been nominated for the Super VOBIS scheme and eligible for the VOBIS Sires incentive schemes, which will return serious money to owners for any two or three-year-old win.
