The Governess

Sire: Rubick

Dam: Star Charge

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 3 year old

Foaled: Sep 25th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

By brilliant speedster RUBICK out of a CHARGE FORWARD mare.

RUBICK showed unbelievable speed during his racing career, which featured a brilliant win over dual Group 1 winner PLATELET and Golden Slipper winner OVERREACH in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes at three while he also was a Group 3 winner over 1100m at two.

By premier sire ENCOSTA DE LAGO out of a Group 2-winning sprinter that hails from the same family as REDOUTE’S CHOICE and MANHATTAN RAIN, RUBICK was always going to be brilliant on the racetrack.

This filly is out of the 1100m winner Star Charge, a daughter of the Group 1-winning sprinter CHARGE FORWARD. CHARGE FORWARD has done a superb job at stud, siring Ellerton Zahra Racing’s Group 1 winner RESPONSE.

Equally important, his daughters have also produced the last two Golden Slipper winners ESTIJAAB and SHE WILL REIGN as well as the Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner SUNLIGHT and two-year-old stakes winner LIMESTONE.

With such an impressive sprinting pedigree, it is little wonder this filly has developed into a real running type with plenty of presence about her.
