Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing will have a head start when they begin to train this terrific filly by European Group 1 winner DREAM AHEAD.

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra prepared this lovely filly’s dame Sweet Little Lies, a daughter of ELUSIVE QUALITY, who was a brilliant winner by more than four lengths at her first start in Melbourne as a two-year-old.

Sweet Little Lies had abundant pace and this filly is set to follow in her dam’s footsteps as a pacy conveyance being a daughter of the Group 1 July Cup (6f) winner DREAM AHEAD.

DREAM AHEAD has done well at stud in Australia, producing Group 3 winner DREAMS APLENTY and stakes winners AWAKEN, GENERALISSIMO and KEN’S DREAM among other smart local performers.

This filly’s maternal pedigree is full of speed, including her grand-dam DAMA DE NOCHE and her speedy daughter NOCTURNELLE while the family also features this season’s Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes winner DRACARYS.

ELUSIVE QUJALITY’s daughters have been wonderfully successful as broodmares, producing the likes of GUELPH, DEEP FIELD, SHOOTING TO WIN and CALLIOPE.
