Horse Description:

On the track, Red Geisha was the winner of 3 races to 2000m. As a broodmare, she's had 4 foals-three fillies and a colt-all by the imported stallion ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE. The first of them is a 4yo named 'Deep Purple' who has won over 2400m, the second is an unraced 3 year old filly (both trained by Robbie Laing), the third is a black/brown 2yo filly who's just gorgeous and the fourth is finally a boy!

For this current breeding season, Red Geisha is not in foal and she's been sent back to Illustrious Blue...
