Pedigree Update: this filly is the second foal from the mare Supriya - whose first foal is SUPREME JOY - twice metropolitan placed from two starts!

Join First Light Racing and Ellerton Zahra Racing in racing this outstanding filly by now GROUP 1 PRODUCING SIRE Northern Meteor from the Flying Spur mare Supriya.

The explosive son of Encosta De Lago, Northern Meteor burst onto the racing seen with a 4 length debut win at Cantebury in track record time.

Two starts later - he won the Group 1 Coolmore Classic on Derby Day. In the Autumn - he took on the older horses in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (4th) before finishing 2nd to the great Takeover Target in the Group 1 T J Smith at Randwick.

He is the best bred son of Champion sire Encosta De Lago to head to stud being a half-brother to Group 3 winner Queen Of The Hill (Danehill) and a close relation to Group 2 winner Smart Missile (Fastnet Rock).

His oldest progeny are 2YOs and include Group 1 winner Romantic Touch, Group 1 runner-up Zoustar, Group 3 winner The Voice, metropolitan winner and Group 2 performer Northern Glory and Group performers Swing Vote (3rd Listed Blue Diamond Prelude) & Mount Zero (4th Listed Blue Diamond Prelude).

By emerging broodmare sire Flying Spur (broodmare sire of Sebring, Headway, Ashokan, Colorado Claire and Raceway), Supriya was unplaced yet is throwing lovely types.

She has a 2YO Lonhro filly - Supreme Joy - in work with Joe Pride and has produced another promising prospect in this Northern Meteor filly.

She is a half-sister to the Group 2 winner Rock Me Baby and winners Anavila and Frazzle Dazzle. The Dam said of them family bring international success from France, Ireland and the United States making her a very promising filly with plenty of residual value should she achieve racetrack success.

She heads to the Group 1 winning stables of Mat Ellerton & Simon Zahra. "This filly is a great walking filly. She is so relaxed, confident and has a real presence about her. She has a great head on her and I think she'll make a lovely racehorse. She descends from a family full of winners and multiple winners and is by a sire doing a good job but whom we're yet to see the best from his progeny. She looks in a similar mould to the Northern Meteors we have at home and the feedback we're hearing in general that they'll explode onto the scene as 3YOs like Northerm Meteor did - and Encosta De Lago and his progeny have done before him"

Please join us at First Light Racing where our first nine runners are ALL WINNERS!

This filly's share price is inclusive of all costs until 30 April 2013
