* Her double of Danzig & Mr Prospector = SPEED

* Loved to tough it up on the pace


Nuns On The Run is by the speedy Group Two winning 2yo Sprinter Chateau Istana (GB).

Her Dam Confessing is by Golden Slipper Winner and Multiple Group 1 Winner Flying Spur a 13 time Group One Producer and Broodmare Sire of Golden Slipper Winner in Sebring.

Her second dam Sworn Secret was Half Sister to Golden Slipper and Blue Diamond Prelude Winner DANZERO.

Nuns On The Run won her only trial as a 2yo in Open Class over 900m easily and had her first race start at Metro level where she clearly was not right. She had sustained a fetlock injury at some point that hindered her career and was the reason she didn't respond to a quick backup. She raced far better fresh with space in her runs and always trialed well and showed her quality when she put pay to the Country Championship Qualifier REDWOLF, easily beating him by 3.5L in a 1000m trial.

Below are links showing her first two wins at Takeover Target's home track, Queanbeyan. Both these runs are from her second prep and show her true natural speed and stamina. The first win was over 900m was run on a soft7 in 52.08 (600m 34.59) and the second over 1100m 1:02.75 (600m 34.33) on a good3.

This girl definitely has the pedigree to produce quality 2yo speed. Her duplication of Danzig and Mr Prospector matches well with the 2yo Sires All American, Artie Schiller, Canford Cliffs, Charge Forward, Congrats, Denman, Domesday, Duporth, Statue Of Liberty and Street Boss to name a few.

Nuns On The Run would have won many more races without her injury which was testament to her mental toughness. Even with her handicap she had superior speed to all her siblings, including Secrets who has won 22 races from 103 starts.

She will no doubt have a long fruitful and rewarding career as a broodmare.
