This young, WINNING well related daughter of STARCRAFT is half sister to the 3yo GROUP 1 CF ORR Stakes Winner ALABAMA EXPRESS who will enter stud for his first season, standing for $27,500.00.

She is out of the ENCOSTA DE LAGO Mare LAGO OVATION, who is half to Listed Place Gallopers REKINDLED POWER, SHUFFLE UP, and the 6 x Winning HONG KONG Galloper 'VICTORY MACHINE'., who are all by Redoute's Choice.

LARKING hails from the elite Stallion making family of Redoute's Choice, Domesday, Nijinsky etc, and matches extremely well with our top tier Stallions. An obvious option for her is THE AUTUMN SUN due to the outstanding success that Redoute's Choice has had with her immediate family.

She is a strong well put together mare and stands around 16.1 hh.

She is ready for the upcoming breeding season.
