Life no:
Gosford 2250 NSW, Australia

Black Vanilla is a stunning, strong 3 year old filly standing 16HH. She has been given time to grow in the mind and body as a young stayer moving forward should be.

Trainer has a high opinion of her and has stated she is a lovely mover and has the longest stride. She has been back in serious work since the 1.2.17 and is ready to have a barrier trial shortly.

Full up to date x-rays available.

She is sound and has a very competitive nature. Black Vanilla is Black/Brown in colour and looking for distances from a mile.

She really enjoys her work has worked on Gosford track on 4 occasions to date and the rest at home track.

Black Vanilla has a good pedigree and is closely related to the Godolphin race Mare Cottage whose Dam Amitola is the full sister of Secret Quest who is the Dam of Black Vanilla.

As owners we believe she is top class, so she is a very reluctant sale due to the ill health of the owners.
