First impressions are everything and this filly had instant presence as soon as she stepped out of the box! A near spitting image of her super star sire SO YOU THINK, she’s all class this filly and is incredible value who presents as an exciting 2021 Oaks prospect!



It's no secret we adore the Champion racehorse of his time and star sire of his generation So You Think with this filly to become FLR's 2nd daughter by the great stallion this year! A filly that instantly grabs your eye, we were so taken by her presence and athleticism there was no way we weren't bringing her home.

* Stamped with the quality of her super sire So You Think, she had instant appeal with the way she draws your eye in to her attractive, yet, very athletic frame
* On top of that, she’s a beautifully conformed, good size, very correct and balanced filly with loads of great scope
* Plus that kind and intelligent eye to match, so typical of the So You Think breed
* But that’s not it! She floats over the ground with a long, yet smooth and very athletic walk – she’s got everything we love to see in a racehorse!


* He’s already proven himself to be a sire of the highest class producing exceptional Group 1 Classic prospects year in, year out!
* 23 x Stakes winners and 6 x Group 1 winners including 2020 ATC Derby winner QUICK THINKER, Oaks winner SOPRESSA, Guineas winners D’ARGENTO, LA DIOSA and INFERENCE plus star mare NAKEETA JANE
* He finished yet another incredible 2019/20 season with 9 Stakes Winners including Group 1 winner QUICK THINKER and further Group winners MISS SISKA, SO SI BON, THOUGHT OF THAT, FASIKA and REALM OF FLOWERS


* A smart mare on the track, Akoonah is a 5-time winner and city class, young mare who is a close descendent of the Champion MAHOGANY
* 2nd Dam Cathead was also a multiple winner and producer of 4 to win from 5, including 3 of which who were city class racehorses
* Furthermore, she is the half-sister to Stakes Winners TOUCH OF MAHOGANY and LIFELINE EXPRESS and of course, the grand-daughter to the Dam of Champion 2yo, Champion 3yo and all out Champion of his time MAHOGANY!
