This lovely filly was purchased at the Osarus Yearling Sale in France and qualifies for 'French premiums'. France is well known for its lucrative system of Owners’ premiums on top of already generous prize-money. On the flat, a 2 or 3 year old can earn an extra 64% on top of the race purse, so we would expect to be taking full advantage of this!
She is a very strong, athletic filly and a good walking individual. The fact that she is by Peer Gynt, who perhaps is not seen as a 'fashionable' sire, does not faze us, as we have previously owned a colt by him called Chicago Bere, who after winning two races was sold for twice the sum we paid for him!
Her dam L'Ete, can get winners wherever she goes, including the black type and 101 rated performer The Turning Point. She is also a full sister to Printemps who raced at Group 1 level. We were prepared to go up to €40 or €50,000 for this filly, so were obviously delighted to secure her for €22,000.
We have placed her with Karl Burke who has done well with French breds, such as Katie's Diamond. He has of course excelled with the filly Quiet Reflection, so with his keenness to race in France in recent seasons, we feel this is a great match.
Latest Trainer Update (5th Sept): A very nice debut at Carlisle on June 8th, finishing her race well to take 3rd, behind two horses who had experience. A little green at the start, her best work was in the final furlong, as she picked up when asked. The Racing Post comment says "can improve" and ourselves and Karl think there's more to come. She is having a break before her next start and should be back on the track before the end of the month.
