This filly was purchased by Nick at the Arqana October Yearling Sales on October 21st for 20,000 Euros.
There was never a scenario where Nick wasn't going to be buying this filly. This filly was a standout in the final two days of the sale and in Nick's opinion in the best five fillies on offer in the entire sale.
Nick has viewed over 2,000 fillies at the sales to date and on only a handful of occasions Nick has had the same feeling as he had when he viewed this filly.
She is a gorgeous daughter of Hunter's Light who stands at around 15'2. She is very strong and is a great shape, and looks considerably sharper than her pedigree.
She is as good a mover as you will find with excellent confirmation.
Nick Bradley Racing has excelled in recent years with excellent physicals by less fashionable stallions and that is exactly what we have bought here. The likes of Fev Rover, Mystery Angel, Honey Sweet, Oscula, Hellomydarlin, Corazon, Guilded are all recent examples of this plan working.
She is by Hunter's Light who was a multiple Group/Grade 1 winner over 10 furlongs. This filly is out of a Cape Cross mare so you would expect our filly to want at least 7 furlongs and possibly trips up to 10 furlongs. She is therefore one for the second half of her 2yo season who we would expect to progress as a 3yo.
She joins Grant Tuer who joined the Nick Bradley Racing rosta in 2021 and Nick has been impressed with his decision making and general organisation. Grant has had his career best season in 2021 and is a trainer on the up.
