'The horse to win Champion Thoroughbreds their first Oaks!'

We fought hard for this filly at the Magic Millions Premier Yearling Sale, an exceptionally well bodied filly with a lot of class about her.

By Group 1 Blue Diamond winner NADEEM. Out of 2yo winning American bred and raced mare IGUANA JO, who is by top US sire DYNAFORMER the sire of Melbourne Cup hero AMERICAIN.

NADEEM has been throwing an exceptional amount of stakes class fillies. that excel over the Classic distance.

Bred at the famous Twin Palms Stud by an individual who bred his mares to make tough and fast racehorses, not to breed commercial sales stock!

A big, scopey filly with a strong foundation that looks as if she'll get over a good bit of ground - an Oaks and Classic style filly who will likely race as a 2yo, but excel at 3.

She looks as if she has a lot of STAMINA and boasts serious QUALITY,CLASS and SCOPE. Purchased for UNDENIABLE VALUE.

“This is the filly to score Champion Thoroughbreds their first Oaks. I think she’ll mature into a lovely style of horse, ideally suited to middle distance 3yo features but I'm not ruling out 2yo campaigns.” - John O’Shea

We select horses that are 100% suited to racing and pass numerous tests from numerous experts in their fields (pedigree, type, vet, etc).
