POWERFUL FILLY, BIG DEEP GIRTH AND GREAT SHOULDERS. READY MADE 2YO
The Filly: RUBICK X ZIBELLO (pictured right)
This is a must buy filly if you are looking to own a serious racehorse. She boasts great conformation.
This beautiful Bay filly is a real looker. A very precocious type with attitude. Long stride and is correct in every way.
She has a strong thick neck, big deep girth and has a real presence about her. Littered with 2yo winners in her pedigree and hails from a strong family and will be a valuable broodmare when her racing career is finished.
This Rubick filly is currently at Evergreen Stud being broken in by Gordan Pratt.
Gordan Pratt’s comments in relation to this filly. “On first thoughts, I really liked her she was she was easy to get along with almost like a little gem. She broke in really easy, did the whole process without any dramas. I was very happy with her. The type of horse I always enjoyed riding at the end of the day. Really interested to see how she goes in the future. I really like this filly a lot”.
The process of breaking in a horse is to educate them. How to wear saddle and gear, be mouthed, be ridden by a jockey and to adapt to the riders instructions. The filly will also go through the barriers so she can familiarise herself with that important aspect of going to the races. This will insure she is ready for the early 2yo races.
This filly will be targeting the Inglis $2 million Millennium race by Gerald Ryan’s stable.
This filly is has a nicks rating of A. She will boast Gerald Ryan’s polish who also trained the sire Rubick.
We have scoped, x-rayed and clinically examined this filly.
This filly is the direct descendant of 11 individual Black Type winners.
Sire: RUBICK (pictured left)
Rubick was the highest rated 2yo colt of his generation. The most precocious son of Encosta de Lago. A brilliant weight for age sprinter as a 3yo.
Rated equal at 3 to another star-son of Encosta de Lago in Northern Meteor.
“Right from the start we knew we had something special – a superstar” – Trainer Gerald Ryan.
Rubick is the third foal out of G3 winner Sliding Cube, by Rock of Gibraltar, a ¾ sister to Australia’s greatest living sire, Redoute’s Choice, by Danehill, from a fabulous Australian branch of one of the best families in the American Stud Book, tracing to foundation mare Best in Show. Rubick’s future as a stallion could hardly be brighter.

Zibello also hails from one of the best broodmare sires of our generation in Zabeel.

His progeny have won three Melbourne Cups, three Caulfield Cups and four Cox Plates. His champions include Octagonal, Might And Power and the unbeaten Reset.
