En Plein Air

3 Year Old Bay Filly

Sire: Universal Ruler

Colour: Bay

Dam: Our Pie 'o' My

Sex: Filly

Age: 3

Foaled: Oct 15, 2020

Location: Perth, WA.

Price: $2,595 per 5% share

Trainer: Grant & Alana Williams

If the thought of joining a top stable as an owner in a well bred young horse that’s pretty much ready to go, then here’s your horse!

En Plein Air is a 3 year old filly by Universal Ruler from Our Pie ‘O’ My, making her a half brother to our multiple winner Star Soprano, and a full sister to the well performed city winning mare, Empress Of India.

And for those that don’t speak French, En Plein Air is a French expression meaning ‘in the open air’ and refers to the act of painting outdoors. So, when you see an artist sitting there with his easel and canvas painting the landscape, they’re painting ‘en plein air’. So now you know!

This filly has been given plenty of time to develop and has matured into an impressive physical type. After two preps with a pre-trainer, she’s certainly shown enough to justify sending her to the top stable of Grant & Alana Williams, and represents an opportunity to buy into a filly that’s almost ready to go.

From a breeding point of view, her sire Universal Ruler has proven to be a long term, prolific producer of winners. Rarely a week goes by without one or more his progeny winning a race either here in Australia, or in South East Asia too where his stock are very popular. Stakes winners such as Rebel King, The Velvet King, Lady Cosmology, Angelic Ruler, Uni Time, Bam’s On Fire, Market Ruler, Military Reign, and recent winners such as Aztec Ruler, Indie Ruler, Ruler Rocket, Rule’emoff, Yonga Lass, Estimator, Penny On The Queen and Rulee are just some of his 161 winners from 267 runners, giving him a 60% winners to runners to ratio which is high by industry standards.

On the female side of the filly’s pedigree, just about everything on the page wins. Every dam on the page is a winner. Her first dam, Our Pie O My has so far had 3 to race for 2 winners, her second dam Smooth Mover has had 7 to race for 7 winners, and her third dam Miss Sprinklet has had 8 to race for 8 winners. That’s 17 individual winners out of 18 to race between them!

At the time of approval, the filly is in full work with Grant & Alana, and it’s expected that she’ll get to her first trial early in 2024. Those buying into this new syndicate will be getting a well put together young horse by a proven winner producing stallion, from a proven winning high strike rate winning family, and of course, one being trained by currently the leading stable in Western Australia. And, as she fits into the ‘under $3,000/share’ bracket, most importantly, the price is right!

Overshare - Choix Belle 2yo Filly

2 Year Old Bay Filly

Sire: Overshare

Colour: Bay

Dam: Choix Belle

Sex: Filly

Age: 2

Foaled: Sep 21, 2021

Location: Ascot, WA.

Price: $2,370 per 5%

Trainer: Trevor Andrews

Here’s a good looking filly, a beautiful filly in fact, that we purchased from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale earlier in 2023.

An attractive physical type, she presented very well at the sale, with both our main bloodstock agent and our vet giving her the thumbs up.

She’s by the dual Stakes winning stallion Overshare. A Son of the Champion stallion I Am Invincible, Overshare was precocious enough to run in both the Blue Diamond Preview and Preludes, and was also a city winning two year old. In his three year old year, he took out the Listed McKenzie Stakes at Moonee Valley, and the Group 3 Zeditave Stakes at Caulfield. With the exception of his juvenile win, all of his other runs were in feature races.

As a stallion at stud, in his first season he had 55 foals born, and for the three breeding seasons after that, he’s had a further 278, which means that we should be seeing plenty of his progeny to race as two year old’s and over from now on. So far the best of his progeny is Lady Laguna, a winner of over $595,000, who in addition to winning at her first two starts, also went on to win at Listed level by taking out the Mick Dittman Stakes at Doomben in April this year.

On the female side of this filly’s pedigree page, her second, third and fourth dams were all multiple winners who’ve gone on to throw winners at stud, and that coupled with the fact that she’s a very good physical type, made her a buy for us at the right price. Since buying her at the sale, she’s since been transported over to Perth and has already been broken in receiving good reports from all who have worked with her.

She’s being trained in Perth by Trevor Andrews who’s built up such a good record over nearly four decades of training thoroughbreds. Trev has proven that he can win with colts and fillies, two year olds, three year olds or older horses, and both sprinters and stayers. His horses are always immaculately presented, and he’ll give this filly every opportunity to get herself-and you-into the winners circle!

Shalaa - A City Girl Filly

2 Year Old Bay Filly

Sire: Shalaa

Colour: Bay

Dam: A City Girl

Sex: Filly

Age: 2

Foaled: Oct 27, 2021

Location: Ascot, WA.

Price: $4,550 per 5%

Trainer: Luke Fernie


Shalaa was an outstanding racehorse in Europe. A winner of 2 Group 1’s, 2 Group 2’s and a Group 3, he strung together 6 wins which made him the Champion British and French 2yo of his year. Frankie Dettori described Shalaa as the fastest two year he’s ever ridden. Now at stud, the success continues and Shalaa has produced Group winners in Europe, America and Australia, his most notable performers being the Group 1 winner No Speak Alexander who claimed the Leopardstown Matron Stakes, while Seven Veils in Australia proved too good when winning the Group 2 Reisling Stakes. Having also sired Magic Millions Classic winner Shaquero, Shalaa has proven himself to be a sire that can produce the early two-year-olds as well as horses who can produce Group 1 performances at three.

An Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling, this filly has come across to Perth and will be trained by Luke Fernie, who also trained the filly’s stakes winning half sister LACED UP HEELS.

Think of good horses like CLAIRVOYANCE and IN THE BOAT, and then dream that this could be your next good horse!

If it’s a precocious colt that you’re after, one that can compete for the lucrative Westspeed bonuses on offer for 2 & 3 year olds in Western Australia, then this colt by Nostradamus could be the one for you.

Nostradamus was real speed machine on the racetrack, a quality colt who won 4 races between 1100m and 1200m, competing in Group or Listed company against the best of his generation at 18 of his 20 starts! He was a winner as a two year old, and also ran fourth in a Blue Diamond Prelude, but it was at three that he excelled, winning twice at Stakes level taking out both the Group 3 San Dominico Stakes over 1100m, and the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas over 1200m. He also ran second in the Roman Consul Stakes over 1200m at Group 2 level as a 3 year old, and he raced on to also win at Stakes level as a four year old too by taking out the R N Irvine Stakes over 1100m.

This is a powerfully built colt who should be up and running early.
