READ BELOW—BIG PEDIGREE UPDATE—5 February 2019
This filly is a perfect cross between SACRED FALLS and SAVABEEL, with a superb pedigree, that we were very excited to buy. There is a lot of Savabeel in the way she looks which she gets from her mother HONOLULU, who is by Savabeel. This is a real athlete that we thought might make a fair bit more than we paid, so we bought her well under the guard.
She has a super family, with her dam Honolulu a half-sister to the four-time Group 1 winner and stallion ALAMOSA and the 2yo Group 2 placed Sacramento. She is closely related to Australian champion 3yo filly LIGHTS OF HEAVEN and multiple stakes-winner ELOA as well as Group 1 winning 2yo DAL CIELO. The fillies two half-brothers to race are both winners. AEROLUMINANCE is a multiple winner in Hong Kong and, in a big pedigree update, RELLSON-SACRED CAPITAL won the Listed Macau Spring Trophy in February.
She is a beautiful mover that is correct and has a bomb proof attitude that you need for horses to get to the very top. She is also an ideal three-year old filly for the classic races of the One Thousand Guineas and Oaks, but has good two-year-old blood in her family, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see her race in her two-year-old season. With her pedigree, if she gains black type, she will become very, very valuable. She was a clever buy.
A gorgeous filly with great scope, by a sire that has a massive rap on him.
