I was quite taken with this filly when I inspected her. As a type she is hard to fault. She is a stunning filly with a great hindquarter. She has an attractive head with a good girth and length of rein.

The filly is a great walker and received a high rating from Dr Tim Roberts when he vetted her for me.

She is by a young sire who is doing a good job at stud. He finished 4th on the Australian First Season Sire’s List in 2019/20 with 14 winners which saw him lead this crop of young sires by winners. He was represented by the Stakes winner Wisdom Of Water which won the Group 3 Ken Russell Stakes and was 5th in the Group 1 JJ Atkins which is Queensland’s premier 2yo race.

He has continued to do a good job in his second season and holds down 4th place again on the Second Season Sire’s List. Once again, he is getting plenty of winners which is positive with him holding down 3rd place for winners.

He has a pedigree that is ideal for our racing which is heavily geared towards sprint racing. He is by of a high-class Group 1 winner in Exceed And Excel who has excelled both here and overseas siring 182 Stakes winners including 16 Group 1 winners.

Exceed And Excel is out of the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate winner River Dove. This is one of the best families in the Australian stud book. Headwater was reared at Cressfield Stud. This is one of our best and regularly tops the sales averages at the Inglis Easter Sale. Cressfield’s elite broodmare band is one of the very best in Australia boasting bloodlines many other studs would die for.

This filly has a pedigree cross that intrigued me with her being out of Deodara by Zoffany. Zoffany was a successful sire who had a short stint here. Internationally, he sired 76 stakes horses which is a good effort.

His figures as a broodmare sire is what really interested me. He has only a few runners out of his daughters with four winning. These four winners include a Group 1 winner and Group 3 winner. This is exceptional with the Group 1 winner Tiger Tanaka which won at Group 1 level at 1600m as a 2yo as well as winning at Group 3 level. She won six of her eight starts as a 2yo being beaten into Group 3 level and 4th at Group 1 level. She looks like being a super star.

His other winner was Santosha, which won two of five races as a 2yo including the Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes at Royal Ascot. She also was placed 3rd at Group 2 level.

These figures are exceptional.

This filly is a real 2yo type and will be aimed at the early 2yo races. She is a ripper.
