Dam: Water Rising
Foaled: Aug 26, 2018
Price:2.5% - $7,228 | 5% - $14,456
Trainer: Kris Lees
One of the fillies of the sale who was in Jamie’s top 3 in the catalogue of 1000 plus horses!
THE SIRE – Pierro
This filly is by PIERRO and for those people statistically minded PIERRO is one of the best young sires in Australia. He has a very high runners to winners statistic and his fillies are extremely consistent and include horses like PIERATA, SHADOW HERO, ACADIA QUEEN and TULIP.
From the suite of statistics we have developed and own we can tell you that Cressfield stud is one of the Top 6 farms in Australia for stakes winners to runners and has outperformed some of the biggest farms in Australia over the last 10 years. Given we need everything in our favour when buying yearlings this is a great advantage for the horse and her owners as it’s potentially a huge head start.
Pierro this year is so popular he was the first sire fully booked this season and stands at $88,000 for a cover and In our opinion in the coming years he will be one of Australia’s leading stallions.
Pierro is the highest-rated Australian juvenile since 1977 and was the highest-rated 3yo sprinter in the world in 2013.
THE DAM – Water Rising
WATER RISING is out of the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate winner River Dove who has thrown the emerging Stallion in HEADWATER as well as race mare FARE WELL who are both stakes horses. Water Rising was reported to have well above average ability before suffering an injury in the paddock and not racing. This is her first foal.
In terms of her physical make up she has a huge hip on her which we rated 9 out of 10. We rated her barrel, her girth and her shoulder an 8 out of 10 which for us is very high. Physically, she is a beauty! Another plus for this filly is she has a huge airway which can be beneficial for racetrack performance.
She will be trained by Kris Lees who in our opinion is easily the best trainer of fillies in Australia and he has been one of Australia’s leading trainers and ranked in the top 5 for the past 5 seasons. Kris has wonderful facilities, great staff, excellent communication and this means our filly will get every chance.
With such a good pedigree she has good residual value and she is a filly we are very bullish on!
Hear from Coolmore Australia’s Tom Moore on his thoughts of our beautiful filly!
