Adrian and I secured a lovely filly from the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale. She is by Darley stallion, SHOOTING TO WIN, out of the Medaglia d'Oro mare, MAKING MISCHIEF who is the 1/2 sister to 3x Stakes winner & Group 1 placed, LAURA'S LUCKY BOY.

Standing at Darley Australia, SHOOTING TO WIN (Northern Meteor) was an impressive three length winner of the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes, and backed up that form in his next start to win the stallion making Group 1 Caulfield Guineas in a faster time than Lonhro and Redoute's Choice. Shooting To Win's best performed progeny include Group 1 JJ Atkins runner-up and winner of the $1 million Bondi Stakes, KUBRICK, and Group winners, MS CATHERINE and EXTRA TIME from just two crops of racing age.

This filly boasts an impressive international pedigree littered with Black Type, and she hails from the family of US Horse Of The Year, 4x Group 1 winner & 6x Group 1 placed, CIGAR.

Purchased for $100,000, this filly represents terrific value. She has already been broken-in, she's a lovely forward style of filly and she's ready to rock 'n' roll.
