Out of a proven producer. The Novelist and Fully Lit are both Stakes-winning juveniles and two very exciting colts.

The most expensive yearling by exciting young stallion North Pacific. Trained by the leading trainer Ciaron Maher.


North Pacific was a high-class racehorse who performed as a two—and three-year-old. He won the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes and was a narrow runner-up in the Group 1 Golden Rose to Ole Kirk.

Prominent Form Analyst Dan O’Sullivan said, “his two peak performances rank him at the top of the 3YO colts for this season. At his best, he had serious Group 1 talent.”

He is by Brazen Beau, who is a Group 1-winning son of I Am Invincible.


Sunlit, by four-time Champion Sire Snitzel, is building an incredible record as a broodmare.

Her first foal is The Novelist, who was undefeated in two runs as a two-year-old. He was one of the favourites for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the back of his Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes win. Unfortunately, he then suffered an injury. After a long layoff, he returned with two impressive trial wins before placing fourth in the Listed Darby Munro.

Her second foal is the $2m Restricted Listed Inglis Millennium winner Fully Lit. He has had four starts with two wins, a Group 3 placing and culminating in a start in the Group 1 Golden Slipper. 


North Pacific is a son of Brazen Beau, who is by I Am Invincible. Snitzel is a burgeoning broodmare sire with 50 Stakes wins to his name. He has an excellent record when his mares are mated to I Am Invincible. From 24 runners, the cross has produced 20 winners of 53 races. He has a strike rate of 4% Stakes Winners / Runners, which is in the top 20% of crosses for Snitzel mares. 


This filly looks like a real runner. True to what the mare has produced, she seems an early, ready to run, two-year-old type. She has been broken in and handled the process like a true professional. She looks like an out-and-out sprinter and will be a leading contender for the early two-year-old races. 

She is the most expensive yearling sold by North Pacific, which is a testament to her quality.  

*Please note this is a lease contract, and we are selling her racing rights until August 2028.

She is eligible for the lucrative INGLIS Race Series.

She is currently in work at Ciaron Maher stable in Ballarat.
