An unbeaten Golden Slipper winning Champion two-year-old Vancouver has all the credentials to become a super sire. The highest rated two-year-old of his generation Vancouver kicked off his career taking out the Breeders' Plate in fine fashion. He then went on to win the Group Three Canonbury Stakes and the Group Two Todman Stakes on his flawless path to the Golden Slipper. He culminated his career as a two-year-old with an impressive victory in the Golden Slipper, the world's richest two-year-old race and the race that continues to shape the Australian breeding and racing industry like no other. With his progeny proving to be well received and very popular in the ring we are delighted to have secured this filly with plenty of upside.

This filly is out of the talented Group Three placed mare Angel Bee. A city winning two-year-old, Angel Bee came back a better three-year-old adding some black type to her resume placing in a Group Three and just missing out by a nose in a listed race. Dam of two foals to race Angel Bee is already the dam of one winner. Out of a Group Three winning Zabeel mare herself, Angel Bee's dam is also the dam of three stakes horses including a multiple black type producing mare in Turnstiles. With early speed written all over this filly's page and a young active family with plenty of updates to come through, we are extremely excited to get our hands on this early sharp looking two-year-old.
