A half-sister to the talented Chris Waller trained eight-time winner and Group 3-placed Zumbelina, who won four consecutive races as a 3-year-old.
This is a filly who looks to be built for speed, with each of her first four dams winning at sprint distances and her sire Nicconi also the sire of top sprinter Nature Strip.
"I'm very proud to train the Star Thoroughbreds' horses. Denise and her team select quality horses at the sales and their race track success is testament to the work they do to find the best possible yearlings at the right price. The 2019 Magic Millions Star collection is another group of very exciting prospects."- Chris Waller, January 2019
By Nicconi, a dual Group 1 winning sprinter who is fast gaining a reputation as a top sire of sprinters. Although he only has 350 runners to date, he’s already sired 17 Stakes winners including the star sprinter Nature Strip. Sircconi, Faatinah and Tony Nicconi have also announced their class with eye catching Group wins.
From Ruth’s Secret, who has left one foal to race to date, Zumbelina (pictured right) trained by Chris Waller, an eight-time winner - four of these in a row - and of $500,000 in prize money. This filly is from the famous ‘Leica’ family, which traces back to Leica Show who was a Champion 3YO filly, and grand dam of dual-Doncaster winner Pharaoh.
Amarina is an excellent property to raise young horses having produced and sold stars such as 10-time stakes winner Catkins. Other recent stakes winning graduates include Group winners Property, She’s So High, Prize Catch and Aeronautical.
This filly was offered as Lot 85 at Magic Millions 2019
