From the extended family of the Sangster's family Champion Racehorse and Sire, Caerleon, and from the first crop of the Prix Jean Prat and Somerville Tattersalls Stakes winner Havana Gold, Mark bought this attractive and well made filly, a half Sister to the 83 rated Authorized Too, from Tattersalls October Yearling Sales. Her dam, by the Champion Sire, Oasis Dream, was a multiple winner in France

This video shows her on the move at the beginning of November taking her first steps forward under tack and girth in what should a decent racecourse career; and a week later

here she is being ridden for the first time under Ellie.

Progressing to the first week of January here she is breezing with the Footstepsinthesand two year old behind her; and here she is three weeks later at the end of January being led by Misu Pete. She is entered in the £150k Tatteralls October Sales race run at Newmarket this Autumn.

Mark put her on the track in a sxi furlong Novice Auction Stake at Newbury in the middle of July and she ran with promise both at Newbury and at Windsor three weeks lataer; she didn't quite replicate those two performances at Wolverhampton and in her first Nursery, at Salisbury at the beginning of September; but she fulfilled the promise she has always showed at home by getting up on the line in a competitive Kempton Nursery in the middle of September. Up seven pounds for that performance and stepped up in trip to a mile saw her win a second Kempton Nursery five weeks later, again getting up close home under a sympathetic ride from David Probert
