This high quality well bred filly is by THEROCK – a stand out son of Australia’s leading sire FASTNET ROCK.

She comes from an exceptionally strong female family that includes DANCER’S JOY, Pirouettes, Chasse, Yellow Diamond, Tom Coureuse and HK G3 Winner SICHUAN SUCCESS (FASTNET ROCK!)

This is a very good, strong and athletic filly of medium height and good length. Her legs are good and she has plenty of bone. She is indicative of the lovely types that her sire has produced.

Purchased as a weanling for $370,000 from Fastnet Rock’s first crop, THEROCK was a magnificent, highly talented and exceptionally athletic colt that leading trainer Gerald Ryan described as one of his stable stars alongside Melito and Rothesay. After winning two Sydney races, and defeating many subsequent stakes winners, THEROCK was ruling favorite for the $1m Group 1 NZ Guineas however a soft tissue injury prevented him from crossing the Tasman.

THEROCK’S first crop are now two year olds and his progeny have been picked up by some of Australia’s leading trainers in Darren Weir, Mick Kent and, of course, Gerald Ryan, who couldn’t wait to get one of THEROCK’S first crop.
