Broodmare's breeding status:

In foal:No
Selling with a foal at foot:No

Part of a bloodstock reduction, this mare was not bred last year but held for weaning of her Nicconi colt. Half sister to New Asia Sunrise who was unbeaten as a 2YO in the challenging racing environment of Hong Kong and made his way to Class 1 racing through tough and consistent efforts, amassing over A$1.5 million in prizemoney. This mare's racing career was dramatically hampered by EIPH resulting in a quick retirement.

From a family of "runners", this mare would be ideal for breeders looking to retain her progeny to race or breed to a favourite stallion at an affordable price.
