CHEEKY AS is the talented Darren Weir trained 3yo filly by G1 winner and producer HELMET from the family of BLACK CAVIAR, ALL TOO HARD and MAGNUS.

She is definitely at her best when racing close to the speed and was an impressive 1100m winner at her only attempt leading where she defeated the Snitzel filly RIVER JEWEL winner of the $100,000 Elvstroem Classic at her next start.

I?n her last 3 starts she has drawn the car park which does not suit her when racing beyond 1000m. In an earlier start after being ridden positively from barrier 12 she was only beaten 2.8L over 1000m by the Group and Listed performed MACTIER and Metro winners EASY BEAST and PREVAILING WINDS.

CHEEKY AS clearly has great potential on the racetrack but will also be in strong demand as a broodmare after racing due to her pedigree and the fact she was a winning 2yo. One quality option will be breeding back to the family and she looks extremely well matched to ALL TOO HARD, MOSHE and MAGNUS.

For more information on this quality 3yo please contact Royal Bloodstock.
