A filly full of quality! She is by the brilliant sire of 2yo Group 1 winners PRESS STATEMENT & SEABROOK, recent Group 1 William Reid runner up SPRIGHT and EZR's recent winner and 2yo Stakes Placed BIONICS.

What else sets her apart?

** She has real physical quality about her having received FLR’s highest physical rating.

** She’s a strongly built who looks a precocious type with plenty of substance, a lovely deep girth, strong hindquarter and a very purposeful walk

** HINCHINBROOK (by Fastnet Rock) is one of the most sought after sires having proven himself to be a sire of the highest class. Sire of Group 1 winners PRESS STATEMENT (now a sire himself), 2yo Group 1 Filly SEABROOK, impressive 2yo Stakes Winner UNITE AND CONQUER and recent Group 2 Australia Stakes winner WHISPERING BROOK.

** His yearlings have been highly sought after and averaged $274,000 at recent Magic Millions so to secure this filly for NZ$105,000 we thought was phenomenal value for money.

** Dam SPIRIT OF JOY was only lightly raced (we love that!) and she placed in a Sydney maiden behind Group 1 winner FIRST SEAL and again behind PREFERMENT showing her obvious ability.

** Trainers Ellerton Zahra – trainers of FLR’s Group 1 winner ARISTIA, Group 3 Standish Handicap runner-up SMART COUPE, City Winner LINGUIST, City winner & Gr 3 placed NASDEX & more - plus they've already enjoyed success with the Hinchinbrook breed through 2YO Spring Stakes performed BIONICS

** Like Bionics - our filly looks a precocious, powerful, early running prospect that joins a stable you know gets the very best from FLR racehorses
