Horse Description:

John's Comments - "This filly is by the Group 1 VRC Australian Guineas winner in Wandjina. She is a strong running type filly who has already progressed through a preparation that saw her finish 2nd in a Mornington Jump Out. Has returned to work early April 2019 and would be no surprise to see her at the races mid year"
