Sire: Fighting Sun

Colour: Bay

Dam: Dance With Fontein

Sex: Filly

Age: 2

Foaled: Aug 06, 2019

Country: Australia

We are looking forward to racing the first foal from the very fast mare Dance With Fontein. She is the 1/2 sister to Nuclear Force, who was the mother of Defcon, winner of the Black Opal and now a stallion in Queensland.

She is by Fighting Sun a very successful young sire who didn’t have many crops.

This is a very good mating and has produced a strong filly that looks fast. The stable had a lot of success with the dam and this filly
resembles her.

It is a fast family and she looks like she will run as a 2Yo and will reward her ownership early.
