This filly caught my attention from the moment I first inspected her. She is a beautifully balanced athlete with a great hindquarter and deep girth. I loved the way she got around and expect her to run as a two years old.

I have paid her up for the Inglis Series which is a great incentive to invest in her. I won the $1,000,000 Inglis Sprint in 2020 with Rubisaki and have won eight Magic Millions feature races.

The filly is by a young sire doing a good job. Star Turn is currently 3rd on the Australian First Season List with his daughter Pegasi running 3rd in the $2,000,000 Inglis Millennium this year.

Star Turn was a fast horse winning Schillaci Stakes but importantly won the high profile 2yo race the San Domenico Stakes and was placed in the Group 1 Lightning and Newmarket Stakes.

Night War was the best 2yo of her year in Perth winning the Group 2 Karrakatta Stakes and then backed up as a 3yo to win the Perth 3yo Magic Millions Classic. She is by the great broodmare sire General Nediym.

Night War is a ½ sister to Duel Group 1 winner Samaready who threw the $2,000,000 Magic Millions winner Exhilarates.

This is also the family of County Tyrone who was Max Lees last Group 1 winner and Kris’s first. Champion 2yo Almalad is also in the family.

This filly goes to Kris Lees, who else!!!
