If you are interested in taking a share in this filly and would like to see her, you are welcome to join us and our owners at Charlie's yard, on the morning of Wednesday March 29th. To book your place/s, please email

Purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale, this filly is by CAMACHO. Sire of French 1,000 Guineas winner TEPPAL, Group 2 Queen Mary and Prix Robert Papin winner SIGNORA CABELLO and many more 'Stakes' performing fillies.

We couldn’t help but be attracted to this really good sized, loose moving filly, the moment we first saw her. A €42,000 purchase in September 2022, she looks a typical Johnston type, good size, good presence with a good length of limb. Not just a sharp and early sort, she looks the type of individual who could be ready to race in May or June, just ahead of the Royal Ascot meeting, but we can see her progressing too, throughout 2023 and 2024, at distances up to a mile.

Camacho is one of the longest established stallions there is, and he can sire classic winners and sprinters alike. The mare has already produced a horse rated in excess of 100 and this filly hails from a black type family steeped in Group race genes.

Hopefully she can prove to be another Marie’s Diamond or Dear My Friend for us and Charlie & Mark to enjoy.

Tim says “she just struck us immediately as a Johnston type. She’s got a great action and is a strong, imposing individual.”

A few days after the sale and a CAMACHO colt, wins Europe's richest 2-year-old race, the Goffs Million, at The Curragh:

The same MPR buying team, who bought last year's juveniles did a great job, with 18 pieces of 2yo black type earned in 2022 and no doubt they have struck gold with this one too!

Race Entry: We've given her an entry in the 'Early Closing' Super Auction Tattersalls Ireland Sales race which takes place at the Curragh in September, so that could be an option for her as the season progresses.

Charlie will start grading his horses into 'Waves' based on their pedigree and their readiness to gallop. The Wave 1 horses (Sprint Bred, precocious types) will be the first to be tried usually mid-March in preparation for the early season 2yo races. Which Wave a horse is in, isn’t a reflection of its ability, just its pedigree. There would be little point galloping a horse in March that needs to start off over 7 furlongs as those races don’t start until June for 2yo’s. The Camacho Filly is likely to be in Wave 2 starting over 6f but there's a chance that she could show precocity and be amongst the 5f starters. 

Training update (21st March): Charlie reports that Ready Or Nott did a faster piece upsides on Saturday. He noted that she was green on her warm up canter so he wasn't expecting what he saw when they went upsides. He reported that as soon as she was upsides, she switched on and knew her job and went very well indeed. She's ready for her first gallop now and that will take place next Wednesday (29th March) and so we have arranged a stable visit to watch this. See the details above if you would like to book to attend.

Her first piece upsides:
