This is one beautiful chestnut filly by Starspangledbanner which we definitely purchased for great value. She rated highly with our selection process.

She has powerful gaskins and above all, a great action. Short cannon bones while lots of power in the hindquarters. Big deep girth also great shoulders. She looks like an early jump and run speed filly.

Good boned, good size and lots of scope about her and there is a lot to like.

The filly has completed her pre-training at Evergreen stud where she did extremely well. She is currently having a short spell before she will go back into pre-training for a second time before heading to Ciaron Maher and David Euctase stables.

She is on target to go into Ciaron Maher and David Euctase stables when she is finished

She has an incredible rating based on her breeding pattern being an A+++ Nicks rating, the highest possible rating and also the highest possible Gold Mine rating of 20/20. This rating is based on similar breeding patterns based on graded stakes winners, a 20/20 indicates this mating is excellent. There are 23 group 1 winners bred on the same pattern including HAPPY CLAPPER, OBVIOUSLY, MIGHTY BOSS, JAPONISME and DIVINE PROPHET.

The filly has also passed 100% clean on her scope, x-ray and clinical examination.

Ciaron Maher took his first tentative steps in racing as a teenager, working with a trainer after school each day. He was an apprentice jockey with Peter Hayes in Adelaide and Melbourne before becoming an accomplished jumps jockey, competing in Australia versus Ireland jockey challenges and riding in England, Ireland and Dubai.

In 2005 he established himself as a trainer in Warrnambool, home of jumps racing. His first winner was Spectacular Storm in a hurdle race at Terang, followed up smartly by another win at Sandown. The stage was set for a successful career not only in jumps racing, but also on the flat as the stable grew. Ciaron Maher has since moved to Caulfield, where he has expansive stables on the course. He has retained facilities in Warrnambool, which suit horses in need of a country setting, and has secured new premises at Randwick. At his property in Pakenham, on the edge of Melbourne’s suburbs, he has agistment and pre-training facilities.

A young trainer with an eye for picking winning prospects at yearling sales, he has built a stable of loyal owners as well as successful horses. He welcomes first-time owners as well as experienced racing hands. He is regarded as hard-working, thoughtful and, above all, patient. His promise is that every horse will be given every chance to develop its full potential.

Ciaron Maher discovered the thrill of Group 1 success in 2007 with TEARS I CRY winning the VRC Emirates stakes at Flemington.

Black type races have flowed since then, SRIKANDI winning the Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap and the Group 1 Sky Racing Tatts Club Tiara. SET SQUARE winning the Group 1 Crown Oaks and JAMEKA winning the Oaks the following year.

Eligible for the BOBS and BOBS Extra Schemes, $11 million Magic Millions race series, $3.5 million Golden Slipper, $1.5 million Blue Diamond, $1 million Golden Rose and Blue Sapphire.
