An unbeaten Golden Slipper winning Champion two-year-old Vancouver has all the credentials to become a super sire. The highest rated two-year-old of his generation Vancouver kicked off his career taking out the Breeders' Plate in fine fashion. He then went on to win the Group Three Canonbury Stakes and the Group Two Todman Stakes on his flawless path to the Golden Slipper. He culminated his career as a two-year-old with an impressive victory in the Golden Slipper, the world's richest two-year-old race and the race that continues to shape the Australian breeding and racing industry like no other. With his progeny proving to be well received and very popular in the ring we are delighted to have secured this beautiful filly with all her sire's traits.

This filly is the first foal out of the Group Two winning mare Blueberry Hill. A very fast and precocious two-year-old, Blueberry Hill won her first two starts. She then went on to win a Group Two and place in a further two Group races that same campaign. The talented mare then came back as three-year-old to take out a listed race in dominant fashion. Hailing from the family of Group One Victoria Derby winner Rebel Raider, this filly's pedigree boasts stakes horses all throughout. With speed on speed being by a Golden Slipper winner out of a very fast two-year-old Group Two winning mare we expect nothing but a precocious and fast filly in this daughter of Vancouver.
