2019 filly by Equiano (Fr) ex Persario (GB) (Bishop Of Cashel (GB))
This filly’s pedigree is as smart as they come, being a full sister to the admirable and multiple Group 1 winning sprinter The Tin Man, and a half-sister to another top-class horse in Deacon Blues. We know this family well as we also have the three-year-old full sister Persaria, who we are hoping will progress into a nice filly this season. Their sire, Equiano, was a very fast horse himself as a dual winner of the Kings Stand at Royal Ascot, and he continues to pass his speed on to his progeny, including Group 1 winning sprinter Belvoir Bay.
