By: Royal Bloodstock

This well put together Daughter of DAWN APPROACH is racing well

In her last 8 starts, she has only been out of the top 5 once! She has raced from 950m to 1400ms from Good to Heavy in the always competitive country NSW Region. She shows good speed and the Trainer believes that she would be perfect for short course racing.

Her winning Dam is half to DECISION TIME, the top Colt on the 2009-10 Australasian 2YO Classification, and she hails from a strong Group 1 Winning family, including 10 x Winner STREAMA, and up and coming European Multiple GROUP 1 Winning Entire, HURRICANE LANE (IRE), who has WON 6 of his 8 starts thus far, 3 at Group 1 Level and one at Group 2!!

Decision At Dawn will make a lovely broodmare after racing.

She is a favourite of the Trainer and he will be sad to see her go.

All Vet checks and inspections are welcome
