We are pleased to be offering shares in this homebred filly out of five time winning mare Shades Of Bella who had two metro wins. She is the dam of one to race, Fight On Shades who is a winner. Her sire Magnus has done a great job at stud having had over 20 stakes winners including the multiple group one winner Streets Of Avalon.

Matthew’s Comments- “She is a lovely filly, with correct conformation and an athletic type. We would expect she would be racing as a later two year old and she will be aimed at races with the extra Vobis prize money attached. A possible race she would be targeted for is the $125K Vobis Gold Strike for 2yo fillies at the Warrnambool May carnival in 2023”.

This filly is currently spelling.
