Horse Description:

A newcomer to the Belhus team after being purchased for just $11,000 at a Magic Millions mixed bloodstock sale.

Had her first run in the blue and white colours when an impressive second at Kalgoorlie, working home well from the tail of the field, recording the fastest last 600m of the race in the process, and then backed that up with another second this time at Belmont Park when getting caught close to the line. Goes good.
