Headwater was a very fast and talented 2 year old. This filly has his class in abundance.
She is out of Charge Forward mare Swaane - the same broodmare sire as Time To Reign, Golden Slipper winner Estijaab and the stunning Group 1 Newmarket Handicap winner Sunlight. This is the female family of exciting 3 year old Ringerdingding and the Champion mare Flitter.
"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
A daughter of Headwater who stands at Vinery Stud, this filly looks every bit as precocious as her sire. Headwater is a son of top juvenile sire Exceed and Excel and Group 1 winner River Dove, who won the Oakleigh Plate. Headwater himself is an incredibly good looking horse who made $500,000 as a yearling before taking out the Group 2 Silver Slipper as a 2 year old.
Swaane is by Charge Forward, the same broodmare sire as She Will Reign and Time To Reign, Golden Slipper winner Estijaab and the stunning Group 1 Newmarket Handicap winner Sunlight. This is the female family of exciting 3 year old Ringerdingding (pictured) and the Champion mare Flitter.
