Moonee Ponds 3039 VIC, Australia

This horse is being sold As Agent:

By: Royal Bloodstock

PRATING is the Flemington trained 5yo mare by Group 1 sire AL MAHER from the RESET mare SET TO TALK and hails from a strong Blacktype family that includes ROYAL DISCRETION, ROULETTES, VEZALAY and G1 winner ALBANY REUNION.

She is a Vic winner over 1200m and has placed at 1400m and 1600m with earnings of $20,808 from her 12 starts.

She has WON on a Heavy and PLACED on a Good. She can sit on the speed or come from behind making her a versatile Sprinter/Miler.

Although it is early days for AL MAHER as a Broodmare Sire, he has already had great success with Eurozone, Street cry and Lope De Vega which is no doubt mainly due to the HALO factor.

I am told she has no issues or vices.

All Vet checks welcome.
