Richard and Chantelle’s comments:
This Press Statement filly looked very mature, and being born in July we expect her to be up and going at 2.  She is athletic with good shape and strength.  Her conformation is correct and we liked the way she moved.  She will be eligible for the SA Rewards Bonuses.  She is very good value at the price.
