Here’s a great looking filly-she’s my personal favourite from our crop of 2019 (32 horses). She’s got a great head and neck, a deep girth, correct leg conformation, good feet, a nice willing nature and she’s as strong as any colt that we’ve bought this year. She looks every inch a runner and she’s got the looks and the pedigree all in the one package!
Check her out in this video….
Every big stable in Australia was on the Exosphere’s at the yearling sales this year. Now they’ve all turned two and they’re starting to get up and running. This filly has developed like you wouldn’t believe since I bought her in January and she’s exploded in the last 3 months since starting work in earnest with trainer Trevor Andrews at Ascot. With a wealth of experience and big race victories behind him, Trevor has proven himself to be one of the most successful trainers in Perth over the last few decades. He’ll be doing his very best to get both her-and you-in the Winners Circle!
Potential Future Residual Value: The importance of future residual value when purchasing thoroughbred fillies should be taken seriously when considering whether to buy a colt or a filly. Whilst almost all colts end up being gelded and are therefore suitable only for a further career off the track, well performed fillies and mares are worth considerably more as potential broodmares. In fact selling such a horse can be just as good as winning another big race! Importantly then, there’s quite a bit of promise in this filly’s immediate family. Her older 3yo relation-a black colt by Pierro that sold at the yearling sales for $100,000 has had two trials in New Zealand wining them both and has since been sold to Hong Kong.
This is a 20 share syndicate priced at $4,095 each. The syndicate fees per 5% share are $220/month and are payable quarterly in advance by direct debit, so $660 four times a year, and are calculated to cover all normal costs such as training, racing, agistment, management admin and communications, farriers, vets, transport etc. In fact, there’s nothing else to pay with the exception of the annual insurance renewal (optional) and your 5% share of any entry and nomination fees for feature group and listed races (which is a bill that you want because it means your horse is good enough to be entered into the better races).
