Sire: Animal Kingdom

Dam: Menage a Charge

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 3 year old

Foaled: Aug 30th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Inside knowledge of the dam led to this exciting purchase.

Ellerton Zahra Racing trained this filly’s dam Menage A Charge, who was a two-year-old winner down the Flemington straight at her second start before injury brought a premature close to her racing career.

Menage A Charge’s first foal has not appeared to date but Ellerton Zahra Racing has secured her second foal by Dubai World Cup winner ANIMAL KINGDOM.

Animal Kingdom also won the Kentucky Derby in a brilliant racing career and the stallion is the sire of the outstanding Victorian three-year-old PEACEFUL STATE and the stakes-placed Earth Angel.

Menage A Charge’s sire CHARGE FORWARD was a Group 1 winner himself while his daughters have produced the last two Golden Slipper winners ESTIJAAB and SHE WILL REIGN and two-year-old stakes winners SUNLIGHT and LIMESTONE.
