Did you see her eye catching debut at Mornington. Already up and running and proving she's one to keep an eye on. Contact the FLR team if you like the look of her as much as we do!

5 September - She was was jumping out of her skin in her fist gallop back at Flemington. She ran 800m in 48 Seconds!

For the 5th time in as many years - FLR leaves Magic Millions with a yearling by Charge Forward for Mat Ellerton & Simon Zahra and this filly looks a blast from the past to previous FLR Racehorse Of The Year winners Face Forward and Menage A Charge.

WATCH TRACKWORK (12 DECEMBER) - https://vimeo.com/194906324

"She's a lot like Menage. She's got a bit of leg on her and there's some real Zabeel about her but she presents physical like Menage A Charge moreso than Face Forward who was a smaller more compact filly"

"She's off a fantastic farm as well that have a fantastic strike rate of producing top line horses"

Couldn't be a truer word spoken with the farm having produced Group 1 stars including 3 Caulfield Guineas winners - Shooting To Win, Gods Own and Wonderful World - Group 1 Coolmore winner Nechita and Group 1 Blue Diamond winner Nadeem all in recent years.

And this filly has a brilliant pedigree descending from a Zabeel mare - like Group 1 superstars Atlantic Jewel, Its A Dundeel, Silent Achiever, Ocean Park, Dear Demi and Fenway to name a few.

"Lots to like about this filly" said FLR's Tim Wilson. "She might just take a bit of time compared to some precocious Charge Forward's - but her trainers know the bred and she'll be worth the wait."

She is $9,435 for a 5% share inclusive of all costs until 31 July 2017 (including Magic Millions Race Series)
