This filly's dam is a half sister to the dam of TRAPEZE ARTIST who stood his first season at stud for $99K. This filly is also by a son of Snitzel so she is bred along very similar lines as Trapeze Artist.
The dam is also a half to Crawl, Old Man. This is a family with a strong and deep black type pedigree of proven classic horses.

The filly is also a half sister to Dispatch who won 2 in Australia prior to heading to HK (Winnies Horse) where he has won a further 4 races and HK$3,685,900

Shamus Award Shamus Award gets winners each week and is a solid performer with recent stakes winners in Mr Quickie, Soul Patch Classic WeiWei, Causeway Girl all winning this season among many City and provincial winners.

Well grown, great mover with a good temperament. This filly is correct in front with good bone and frame.

Don't wait for the sales to buy a classic filly by Shamus Award! Beat the competition. A perfect pinhook (at least $30K at Melbourne Gold), syndication or racing proposition.

Ready to go to the breakers in the new year she leads well, and has been trimmed every 6 weeks and wormed regularly.

Inspections welcome prior to end of sale.
