A great value QTIS filly by 2 x QLD Stallion of the Year ROTHESAY with Queensland's Leading Trainer ROBERT HEATHCOTE - also trainer of recent impressive debut winner by Rothesay GUNTANTES

This filly has completed one preparation already at Eagle Farm over the Winter where she received nothing but glowing reports and she's scheduled to return back to Eagle Farm mid-October for her next campaign.

Trainer Rob Heathcote - "The Rothesay x Golden Whistler filly has done a superb job here coming straight from the breakers. We really like her, all the riders say she gives a great feel working around the track"


- A straight-forward, lovely, athletic filly. Well balanced and light on her feet with a long, loose stride, she moves along with purpose

- By the same sire as Rob's recent debut City Winning 2yo GUNTANTES in ROTHESAY, Queensland's recently crowned 2017/18 Sire of the Year for the second year in a row!

- ROTHESAY is consistently at the top of the Leading Sires list in Queensland for Winners, 2yo Winners and Earnings - sire of Stakes Winners HAVASAY & TOO GOOD TO REFUSE, Stakes performers IN HIS STRIDE, BRING IT HOME POP and of course, First Light Racing's own SCOTTISH ROGUE - a 2 x City Winner & Stakes Placed 2yo

- Out of the 6 x city winning Catbird mare GOLDEN WHISTLER, she's a half-sister to city winner EL CAMPEADOR and from a family full of winners with dam GOLDEN WHISTLER producing 3 winners and Grand-dam MARILLA producing 6 winners including multiple Stakes winner BAREENA.

- Secured from the same QTIS March sale as FLR winners Alpine Dancer, Love And Rock It, Real Estate, Rebel Saga, Vienna Moon, Capeos, Black Champagne as well as racetrack superstars SPIRIT OF BOOM, WINNING RUPERT and BUFFERING!

- Eligible for both MAGIC MILLIONS race series and the lucrative QTIS bonus scheme where 50% extra QTIS prizemoney is allocated for fillies who win or place in all 2yo and 3yo races in Qld (except black-type).
