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.

Charlie says he's not sure at what trip that he wants to start her off at yet in 2024 and he'll use the gallops to guide him on that front. He said that at this point, he's leaning towards a mile but he'll see what she shows in her work. Once he's decided on a trip, we can start looking at the programme and seeing where we want to start her off.

Racing update (March): Not operating at the level we’d initially hoped but she could just be devilishly well handicapped this season. Charlie and his mum Deidre (who rides her most days) believe she looks a different horse and is now a lot stronger. Let’s hope that physical improvement is borne out on the track. Her race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
