Horse Description:

This filly is a daughter of KUROSHIO, a son of the great two-year-old sire EXCEED AND EXCEL, who was a debut winner of the first two-year-old race of his juvenile season.

Kuroshio boasted outstanding speed in his three wins, which also included a victory in the Group III Blue Diamond Prelude in which he defeated multiple Group 1 winner DISSIDENT before returning at three to beat the older horses in a McEwen Stakes field that included another pair multiple Group 1 winners MOMENT OF CHANGE and PLATELET.

Exceed And Excel’s sons are in demand as stallions in both Australia and Europe with top performers such as SIDESTEP, FULBRIGHT, PITLECO, OUTSTRIP and BARATINO standing at stud in either hemisphere and Kuroshio’s stock shows all of the precocity of their sire.

The filly is out of the dual winner Regrade, a daughter of the outstanding racehorse and sire DANZERO, who is the damsire of brilliant two-year-olds EXOSPHERE, DISCREET, PSYCHOLOGIST and Ellerton Zahra Racing’s own speed machine HEATHERLY.
