A Beautifully framed, classy looking filly by Australian Guineas winning stallion GRUNT, out of a talented sprinting mare HOLY SEAL by champion sire I AM INVINCIBLE.

Ideal type for 3yo classics, aiming for Guineas and Oaks. She will be trained by a talented young trainer MATT CUMANI.

THE SIRE: GRUNT is a multiple Group 1-winning son of champion sire O’REILLY. GRUNT displayed early speed and tenacity to claim all four starts in his three-year-old campaign with the victory in the Group 1 Australian Guineas from a wide draw. He returned as a four-year-old and effortlessly won the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes by two lengths. Subsequently beating home eight Group 1 winners in the process, he is ranked as the elite among his generation having achieved a Time form rating of 123. GRUNT is an exciting first season sire who is from a stallion-making family, his dam RUQQAYA is a half-sister to New Zealand Horse of the Year and promising young sire OCEAN PARK.

THE DAM: HOLY SEAL is a Metro winning mare by I AM INVINCIBLE. HOLY SEAL was a very talented and consistent sprinter who won 4 out of 10 stars with 5 placings. She once ran second to the World Best Sprinter NATURE STRIP when she was 3yo and finished in front of a multiple Group 1 winner, STREET OF AVALON. Full sister to a Stakes winning mare DIVINE CENTURI.


She is a beautifully framed filly with magnificent walking action that catches everyone’s eyes. We loved the way she stretches her beautiful long legs.

We and the trainer MATT CUMANI all agreed that she is going to be a beautiful 3YO Classic type with speed and stamina.

Being a late foal born on 12th Oct, she has plenty more to grow and we can’t be excited enough to see how beautiful filly she is growing into in time!

We do think she will likely be late 2YO to 3YO type but her Dam had a brilliant 2YO form as well, so we never know she might be ready as 2YO.

She is currently spelling in Thenford Farm in NSW and will be transported to Victoria to be broken in once she has enough spell.
She currently weighs 420kg on 24th Jan 2022.

She is also eligible for the following bonus race series…
