Dam: Midnight Revels
Trainer: Mick Price
IN FULL WORK!! SELECTED BY MICK PRICE, ATHLETIC PRECOCIOUS EARLY RUNNING 2YO FILLY, GREAT KNEES, GREAT WALK, BIG DEEP GIRTH, GREAT RESIDUAL VALUE. SHOWING AS MUCH ABILITY AS SECRET AGENDA (GR.1 WINNER) AT THE SAME STAGE.
This lovely 2yo Hinchinbrook filly has great conformation. She is forward, has a lovely action and has a good temperament. She is a good size, good depth of girth, perfect pasterns with correct size. Nice slope to the pasterns and her front leg cannon bones are short and stumpy. Nice big sesamoids, her neck and shoulders are at the right angles.
She has shown really promising signs of being something special. This filly has natural speed and is doing everything right. She is being targeted for the 2yo Blue Diamond.
Mick Price comments when inspecting her at the sales, “This filly is an athletic running Hinchinbrook filly. She’s strong, very deep girth on her, bold tough kind of a head, great knees, great walker. I think there’s great residual value when we have finished with her. Hopefully we can make a stakes horse out of her. In the 2nd dam, My Emotion, is a group 2 winner. In the 3rd dam, Aloha, in which we trained here. She reminds me is a little bit of Aloha. She’s got that tough feel about her. I think 2yo, 3yo great scope, great athleticism about her. Just love her”.
Gordon Pratt report after completing her education, “She worked along nice, relaxed and confident not only is she looking great. She has been well educated and has definitely grown. This filly gives me a very nice feel and she is right up there with some of the nicest horses I has seen come through Fernhill Estate this year”.
Mitch Newman comments after this filly completed her second preparation of pre training, “She did everything right, quite scopey. She has a decent frame and gives us a good feel to ride. Stands over a nice bit of ground and covers good ground. Nice and balanced, she has a good attitude and good in the feed bin which is a positive sign. Really happy with the progress she has taken”.
Mick Price’s report while in full work on 2oth September, 2017, “A beautiful filly, really like the filly. She might make a good 2yo, very forward. This filly is a good doing type of filly. She will race as a 2yo and train on the same as Secret Agenda and She’s So High. Big scopey filly, we love her and think she will be a lovely filly going forward. Beautiful clean winded filly. The same winning post as the Blue Diamond and hopefully that will be us. Good mover, very nice filly.
This beautiful filly has done really well, she has completed everything asked of her with ease. She is showing enormous ability and Mick Price very rarely gets it wrong.
This Filly has been vet-checked and scoped.
