Group and Listed Achievements

1st - $120,000 GROUP 3 HBPB Thoroughbred Breeders' Assn Gold Trail Stakes 3YOF SW 1200m


This daughter of Shamus Award was one of the final yearlings to sell in her year - purchased by David Ellis CNZM from the Karaka Book 1 Sale for $170,000.

Winning decisively on debut in March 2023 on a heavy track, she was spelled and returned stylishly in August where she drove through to snatch victory by a nose on the line over Oneira.

her quest to remain unbeaten in three starts was achieved easily in the $120,000 Group 3 Hawkes Bay Breeders' Gold Trail Stakes 3YO SW for fillies over 1200m.  It was a picture book ride by stable jockey Opie Bosson who was three wide from the outside gate (13), improved as they turned for home, and scorched home in a huge finish for this valuable win - and first points in the prestigious NZB Filly of the Year Series.

Raced by the Te Akau Awarded Racing Partnership (Manager" Karyn Fenton-Ellis MNZM) she has won three from three starts for her owners, which include warriors' Assistant Coach Stacey Jones, earning $103,500 in her career to date.
