From the lush, fertile pastures of New Zealand, comes this smart looking filly by Reliable Man from Inspire Me, making her a ¾ sister to the Group 1 Railway Stakes winner, Inspirational Girl.
A dual Group 1 winner on the track in both France and England, Reliable Man won 5 races from 2000m to 2400m. now at stud, Reliable Man is a consistently in-demand stallion who can boast an impressive 368 individual winners to date. Included amongst them are 20 stakes winners such as the Group 1 winners Miami Bound, Inspirational Girl and Miss Sentimental, and a host of others such as Annavisto, De La Terre, Hypnos, Kinane, Main Stage, Belle du Nord, Reliable Star, Battenburg, etc.
The progeny of Reliable Man are generally tough horses who excel at a mile and further. It’s worth noting also that his three best performers are all female, they being the above mentioned Group 1 VRC Oaks winner MIAMI BOUND, the Group 1 NZ Oaks winner MISS SENTIMENTAL, and the Group 1 Railway Stakes winner in Perth, INSPIRATIONAL GIRL. With the latter in mind, it came as no surprise that as a West Australia, we took a very close at this filly when offered for sale at the recent 2023 NZ Bloodstock Karaka Yearling Sale.
Just the second foal of Inspire Me, an unraced mare by POUR MOI-an English Derby winner, it’s worth noting that the filly’s second dam is by the mighty ZABEEL, and her third dam by CENTAINE, blood that flows through the veins of a whole host of big race winners through the generations, not only in New Zealand naturally, but also Australia too. There’s a host of black type on this filly’s pedigree page to back up her athletic physique, and we’d like to think that when it comes time to race, she’ll be effective at 1600m and more.
She’ll do her early education in New Zealand, and after she’s been broken in to saddle, she’ll head over to Western Australia where she’ll be trained, naturally as you’d imagine by Grant & Alana Williams, the team who guided Inspirational Girl to her victory at the elite level of racing.

From July 1st, 2023, which to be fair to everyone, is the date that syndicate fees commence for all owners irrespective of sign-up date, our stress free, fixed fees of $250/month paid quarterly by direct debit ($57.54/week) will cover all of your ongoing racing, training, agistment, syndicate management and communications, transport, farrier, and even vet bills too! In fact, with the exception of annual insurance (which is optional anyway) and the possibility of feature race payments (which is a shared bill you want because it means that your horse is good enough to run in the big races), there’s nothing else to pay! There’s no bill-shock, and you know exactly what you’re up for all of the time.
