The Filly: CHOISIR x LACADA SIREN
This Choisir filly is well put together and moves well. She is strong, powerful and has muscle in all the right places.
Bjorn Baker commented, “I’m very excited to train this Choisir filly out of Lacada Siren, it was good enough to win in Sydney and good enough to come fourth in the Queensland Oaks. She’s an athletic filly, good type. She was not overly expensive and has a bit of pedigree”
She is currently at the breakers getting educated to insure she is ready to run in the early 2yo races.
Gordan Pratt the breaker reported on 21st March, 2017, “She is coming along nicely and is going very well. She is well balance and quite easy to work with. She is picking up everything without any fuss, very straight forward. Has a good attitude and is going very well. It is if she has been ridden a few time before. She’s a laid back and I could not ask anymore of her”
This filly has been vet checked and x-rayed.
