Horse Description:

SACRED FALLS was on a different level as a racehorse, winning four Group 1 races including emulating the great SUPER IMPOSE by winning successive Doncaster Miles. SACRED FALLS was also placed another couple of times at the highest level, but he was also precocious enough to win twice at two among victories at his first six starts.

SACRED FALLS is a first-season sire but is set to join fellow sons of O’REILLY such as ALAMOSA and SHAMEXPRESS as successes at stud. Ellerton Zahra Racing was extremely keen to support such an outstanding young sire.

This filly is bred along classic New Zealand lines as a daughter of the PINS mare Indecisive, who is a half-sister to Group 3 winner BETWIXT, making this yearling a close relation to the Group 1 Queensland Oaks winner PROVOCATIVE.

Her pedigree is full of class with stakes winners between 1250 and 2000m while relations have won stakes races in New Zealand and South Africa, so the family is competitive wherever it appears.
