It is the family of Diamond Like (Danehill), who still holds the 1200-metre track record at Ellerslie, Lovetrista (Rock of Gibralta) and De Beers (Quest of Fame), and stallions Kaapstad (Sir Tristram), Don Eduardo (Zabeel), and Viking Ruler (Danehill).

“She is a filly with plenty of size and strength and from a family that injects an enormous amount of class and quality,” said David Ellis.

“She’s a great looking filly, typical of the family in many ways, and we’re thrilled to have secured her.”

The filly has a cross of legendary sire Sir Tristram (Sir Ivor) through her sire line and the dam-line of O’Lovely.
