Each year at Karaka we set about the task of selecting colts and fillies to fill a spectrum of criteria from top juvenile prospects, Classic 3yo Derby, Guineas and Oaks aspirants, through to potential Cup winners and we believe we ticked the Classic 3yo filly box by securing this quality specimen.

By successful international sire Iffraaj, which is making a name for himself as a sire of good fillies in both hemispheres (2012-13 NZB 3yo Filly of the Year Fix down here), this filly has physical markers we're able to pinpoint of her dam sire Pentire, genetics which should shine through come Oaks time and her second dam is the durable and high class former South Island racemare Covered N' Grey, winner of 24 races from 900m to 2000m and Classic placed when third in the NZ 1000 Guineas of her year.

A half-sister to this filly's dam produced a recent Wellington Guineas winner and now Hong Kong Group 1 placed President Lincoln so we know the family is capable of reproducing the grand-dam's class on the racetrack.

This is exactly the type of filly we get it right with so come and join the likely action of racing a top Classic filly at another of our value for money price levels.
