Kermadec X Kartini
1 year old Bay or Brown Filly
Sire: Kermadec Dam: Kartini
Ellerton Zahra Racing isn’t afraid to take a punt with young sires and this superb filly by the top galloper KERMADEC fits the bill.
KERMADEC is a son of TEOFILO that was simply outstanding over 1600m, winning the Group 1 George Main Stakes and Doncaster Mile over the famous Randwick mile as well as the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington.
KERMADEC was also placed at Group 1 level in two runnings of the George Ryder Stakes, finishing second to the great mare WINX in 2016 while he also ran second in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes.
The stallion’s first yearlings appeared at the 2019 yearling sales but KERMADEC has already impressed the big buyers with his early stock fetching up to $280,000 with many of the big buyers seeking the stallion’s first offerings.
This filly out of the CANNY LAD mare Kartini, a winner over 1000m and 1200m, whose only runner is a dual winner over 900m and 1408m this season. Speed and class runs through this filly’s pedigree with the family including Sweet Little Lies, whom Ellerton Zahra Racing prepared to win as a two-year-old as well as the sprinted DAMA DE NOCHE, NOCTURNELEL, DRACARYS, Seduced, Neutralityand Catch Your Eyes.
She’s got a family full of speed with the strength of her sire KERMADEC, who was a high-class miler.
