First Light Racing's second filly from New Zealand is this beauty by FOUR x Group 1 winner SACRED FALLS with trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young. An absolute steal from Karaka, she's out of the winning Zabeel mare Queen Of Keros, a winning producer and full-sister to multiple Stakes Winner SIX O'CLOCK NEWS who was trained by Trent & Natalie!

From the first crop of star galloper SACRED FALLS (by O'Reilly) who boasts an outstanding record on the track. A FOUR time Group 1 winner in Australia and New Zealand (2 x Doncaster Handicaps, 1 x George Main and 1 x NZ 2000 Guineas), he was undefeated at 2yo, won two Group 1s at 3yo, another at 4yo and another as a 5yo! He lays claim to being the ONLY horse to defeat the Champion Pierro in Sydney and is the first colt in 50 years to win back-to-back Doncaster Handicaps. He was also twice Group 1 placed in the Rosehill Guineas and Queen Elizabeth Stakes behind the Champion It's A Dundeel.

This filly is out of the winning Zabeel mare Queen Of Keros who is out of the Group 1 winner of 9 races MAURINE, and is a full-sister to multiple Group winner SIX O'CLOCK NEWS who was trained by Trent & Natalie, plus further Group winners ANATOMY and AEROFORCE ONE. She carries the cross of O'Reilly over Zabeel which as produced 3 Stakes Winners including Group 1 stars SILENT ACHIEVERand O'MARILYN.

Team FLR - “Very sweet filly, we liked her a lot. She’s very correct and she’s got good leg under her, moves nicely and she’s a very typical New Zealand style of filly - she’ll grow into a lovely sized 3yo. We love that she’s out of a Zabeel mare and the cross works – it’s produced Group 1 winners Silent Achiever and O’Marilyn! We all rated Sacred Falls first crop of yearlings very highly – he was a brilliant Group 1 racehorse and has produced some real quality youngsters - no surprise they were so popular. She’s a great value filly and we stole her from Karaka.”
