2016  filly by Showcasing ex Heading North (Teofilo)

SHOWCASING is a young sire really making a name for himself with the likes of QUIET REFLECTION and TASLEET both conceived off low covering fees. Standing at £35,000 for 2018, most people would consider themselves lucky to be racing one of his progeny, let alone the three that we have been lucky enough to get our hands on! This filly is a very strong and precocious-looking filly who was purchased by Airlie Stud as a foal for 70,000 guineas with a view to becoming an exciting broodmare for them in the future. She is out of the Listed-placed TEOFILO mare HEADING NORTH who hails from the family of the Coventry Stakes winner ROCK CITY.

Trainer

Eve Johnson Houghton

It is a great pleasure to have a horse in training for the first time with Eve Johnson-Houghton who is flying high after a couple of superb seasons from her Woodway Stables base near Didcot where she has regularly punched well above her weight on the track. Eve is a fine ambassador for trainers of the fairer sex and it is hugely exciting that she has agreed to take us on this year.
