Epaulette X Fromelles

Sire: Epaulette

Dam: Fromelles

Colour: Bay or Brown

Gender: Filly

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Aug 21st, 2015

Country: Australia

Trainer's Name: Phillip Stokes

Horse Description:

From exciting first season sire EPAULETTE, a superstar himself and a half brother to HELMET - this big powerful filly is out of the 6-timer Group 3 winning NZ mare Fromelles. She's an athletic type who is bred with speed on her father's side and stamina on her mother side - a potentially lethal combination!

This beautifully put together filly heads to South Australia to join the stables of Phillip Stokes and was one of the finds on Day 1 of the 2017 Magic Millions Sales on the Gold Coast.
