The best Australian colt in recent memory, already a hall of famer and most certainly a future legend of Australian racing, SO YOU THINK did it all on the racetrack and is now poised for an illustrious career at stud.

His 10 G1 wins included 2 Cox Plates, 2 Tattersals Gold Cups, an Irish Champion Stakes and an Eclipse Stakes just to name a few. With the son of HIGH CHAPARRAL beating 75 individual G1 winners along the way collecting $8,900,000 in prizemoney, he rightly earned himself a cult following on the racetrack and etched his name into the history books of world racing.

A champion in dual hemispheres, he was crowned ‘Champion Australian 3yo Colt’ in 2009/10 and ‘Champion Older Horse’ in Ireland in 2011. Now beginning his stud career at Coolmore, it’s not hard to see why we jumped at the opportunity to secure into our colours this daughter of such a promising and exciting stallion.

A strong product of New Zealand’s Karaka Select Sale, this filly is by the Sydney city-winning and stakes-placed DANEHILL mare MYDANEHILLPRINCESS, already a proven producer of two winners from only 3 runners. This means our filly is bred on the highly successful High Chaparral x Danehill cross, which scores the most elite eNicks rating of A+++ ‘Triple Plus’ and is reserved for only the most successful breeding crosses.

This filly’s pedigree only strengthens down the page further, with her 2nd dam Gypsy Princess a producing 5 winners including 3 stakes-performers and importantly being sister to 2 champions and the daughter of a 3rd. Full sister FRENCH BALLERINA was crowned Joint Champion Older Female in Ireland, while ½ sister SUNSPANGLED was crowned Champion 2yo filly in Ireland also. To top this off, this filly’s 3rd dam FILIA ARDROSS won Champion 3yo Filly in Germany giving this already class pedigree even further quality.

“I was amazed to secure her for the price we paid. She is a strong, well mannered athletic filly that looks like she will run at two and will in turn improve as a three year old” Luke Oliver

To be trained at Caulfield by Luke Oliver, she’s a strong, correct filly by a champion racehorse and exciting new stallion, bred from a city winning and stakes-placed dam, on a proven cross, with a pedigree page full of black-type and boasting 3 champions already. This filly really does have everything you want to make it on the track and plenty more. When you take into account that at $2200 a share, she’s serious value and a fraction of what you’d expect to pay for all of those things, she’s a filly that’s very easy to get excited about.
