Horse Description:

This mare is by the multiple European Stakes winner ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE from the Moonee Valley winner Red Geisha and so is bred to stay all day.

Put in a huge effort in September when a nose second over 2400m at Geelong, and then atoned with a one length win also over 2400m at Bendigo on October 11th. No luck in the straight when a close up fourth two starts back and then atoned with a win at Mornington. Didn't handle the back up 5 days later though and so is currently having a few weeks off...

Very promising dour stayer.
