This beautifully bred filly is by the rising star and emerging young sire Star Witness. Champion two-year-old colt and three-year-old colt of his generation; Star Witness won the Group One Blue Diamond Stakes and Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes in his brilliant career. An incredibly versatile sire, Star Witness is also the sire of our very own superstar Global Glamour. A dual Group One winning mare, Global Glamour took out the Group One Flight Stakes and Group One Thousand Guineas as a three-year-old and won and placed in five further Group races in her stellar career. Having experienced tremendous success with daughters of Star Witness, we are delighted to have secured this gorgeous looking filly.

This filly is out of the well-related and two-year-old wining mare Curl Up. A half-sister to the Group Two winning and multiple Group One placed mare Champagne Cuddles, Curl Up is out of the extremely talented Group One winning mare Sky Cuddle. Sky Cuddle was not only a brilliant racehorse but also a brilliant producer, being the dam of Champagne Cuddles and the dam of a listed producer in Shantha's Girl. Extremely well-related, Sky Cuddle is also the half-sister to five stakes winners and a stakes placed horse. With brilliant racehorses and stakes horses all throughout this filly's page and by a Champion Two- and Three-year-old this filly could be our next Global Glamour.
