Horse Description:

Talk about NZ Quality!

This filly is by exciting young stallion TAVISTOCK out of a 2-time winning SAVABEEL mare who relished the 2000m+

This filly is closely related to 17-time winner and champion Singapore galloper BETTER THAN EVER!

She is bred to run all of the 2400m of the Oaks as a 3yo and she has the pedigree to train on at 4 and challenge some of the top staying races on offer.

Purchased for just $50,000 our Bloodstock manager Peter Moody couldn't believe the value on offer for this filly!
