A robust tough type of a horse lots of physical strength also forward and bold. Consequently she has all the attributes to be a sharp and a precocious 2yo. She is exceptionally fast also agile and seems like she will have a bright future.
Powerful hind-quarters and a chest as a result will constitute phenomenal SPEED. Also a great mover and very light on her feet. Finally great muscle tone and bone for such a young horse.
John Hawkes comments in relation to this filly. “The filly looks very athletic therefore she may possibly do something as a 2yo. Also nicely balanced filly she seems like to have a good attitude”.
The Star Witness filly has also completed her education at Evergreen Stud by astute breaker Gordon Pratt.
The filly completed her first preparation of pre-training, consequently she’s done well. A very forward thinking type of a horse also light on her feet and very athletic.
She will go back into pre-training after a short spell for a second time. She will then head into the Hawkes Racing Team Rosehill stables to prepare for the major 2yo races.
