Horse Description:

Owners can start dreaming about Thousand Guineas and Oaks if they take up a supreme opportunity to get involved with the ownership of this filly by NZ-based sire REDWOOD.

The REDWOOD stock has done a terrific job with a stakes winner ROMANCER and a near-miss in an NZ Derby with Rising Red while Rosewood and Swampland have also impressed with stakes placings.

Redwood’s stock on was on show on March when Big Sur scored by four lengths when getting up to 2000m for the first time at Flemington. The stallion’s stock just thrives over ground.

REDWOOD is a son of HIGH CHAPARRAL who was a Listed winner on debut over a mile at Newmarket before winning the Grade 1 Northern Dancer Stakes over a mile and a half (2400m) in Canada. However, Redwood was competitive across the world, running second in the Hong Kong Vase and Sheema Classic in Dubai where he was competitive with the best stayers in the world. He has passed the competitive nature onto his stock.

This filly is a daughter of the DARCI BRAHMA mare Darting, who was a 1200m winner in New Zealand that hails from the same family as NZ Group 3 winners ART BEAT, PERFECT START while her pedigree also includes US Grade 1 winner APTOSTAR, Irish Group 3 winner ALEXIOS KOMNENOS and Irish St Leger winner ROYAL DIAMOND.

This filly will compete hard in anything she contests, making her an owner’s dream.
