This is a special filly by Japanese bred stallion, Maurice (or otherwise known as the Beast from the East). It is only early days in his career as a stallion but he has been shooting the lights out in both Australia and Japan producing Group 1 winning colts and fillies of the highest order.
Maurice, the champion miler of Hong Kong and leading second season sire, is a proven producer of quality racehorses, notably the 2 x Group 1 winner Hitotsu and our very own Group 1 winner of over $7.7m in prizemoney, Mazu.
“This filly has kept me up at night. I haven’t stopped thinking about her since I first saw her on the farm. I was so relieved to secure her. Maurice is a gun stallion and has produced the likes of Group 1 winners Hitotsu & Mazu and this is a magnificent filly who comes with exceptional residual value prospects.” Chris Ward
This filly is by Anabaa mare Courtyard Circle and is closely related to the well performed Barbed and PrincessMargaret. Courtyard Circle has already proven herself to be a producer of high-class stakes horses from failed stallions. Maurice is a massive stallion upgrade for her which makes this filly a very exciting prospect.
Given this fillies outstanding bloodlines and pedigree, she comes with particularly good residual value prospects after her racing career which is a big added bonus.
This horse will be trained by Peter and Paul Snowden at Randwick, the same team responsible for the success of our two-time Everest winner Redzel and of course, Mazu.
This magnificent filly is nominated for the lucrative $20.7m Magic Millions race series.
The share price includes all expenses prior to 1 April 20024.

Peter and Paul Snowden have enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Triple Crown.
This is of course highlighted by our stable star Redzel, winner of two editions of the world’s richest race on turf, The Everest, and winner of over $16m in prizemoney.
Team Snowden has also enjoyed success with other Triple Crown horses like Mazu, Hot Snitzel and Peggy Jean to name a few.
Peter Snowden was lead foreman for John Hawkes during the halcyon days of the all-cerise when the likes of Octagonal and Lohnro were winning races at the elite level.
With the sale of Crown Lodge to Godolphin in 2008, Peter would transition to Head Trainer for what was to become Darley Australia. Darley enjoyed tremendous success under Snowden, with the likes of Sepoy, Denman, Helmet and Epaulette all securing successful careers at stud after winning Group 1 races.
Peter entered a training partnership with son Paul in 2014, who had already been working alongside Peter for a number of years at both Crown Lodge and Darley, thus creating Team Snowden, a partnership that has now won over 2500 races and $200m in prizemoney.
A noted trainer of juveniles, Team Snowden has trained winners of all the major two-year-old races in Australia, notably Forensics and Capitalist in the Golden Slipper, Sepoy, Pride of Dubai and Earthquake in the Blue Diamond and a Magic Millions, also with Capitalist, who was able to complete the Millions/Slipper double.
Team Snowden is a long and trusted partner of Triple Crown and currently looks after 25 of our horses. We look forward to more shared success in the future.
