This filly is out of the Stravinsky mare Cosabella, a 4 times winner from 1150m-1600m. Cosabella is a half sister to Sonnet, the dam of Group 3 winner ZONZA. Stravinsky mares have produced an asounding 52 stakes winners (11xG1, 9xG2, 11xG3, 21xL) the likes of multiple Gr1 winners TENPIN, LANKIN RUPEE, MOSHEEN, RIP VAN WINKLE, RUSSIAN REVOLUTION, JULINSKY PRINCE and INFANTRY.

All of which make her an exceptional mating based on the success of her common ancestors against the general horse population.

This filly is by 10 time Group 1 and duel Cox Plate winner So You Think- a modern day Champion who defeated over 75 individual Gr.1 winners for earnings of more than $10M in two hemispheres. So You Think continues to produce exciting racehorses with the likes of Group 1 winner LA BELLA DIOSA, INFERENCE, GOLD RUSH and 2018 Randwick Guineas winner D'ARGENTO and 2018 Queensland Oaks winner YOUNGSTAR.

"What we loved about this filly this most was her incredible walk." Director Jason Abrahams commented. "She has the best action on her which reminded us a lot of Butterboom and Ammirata and is bred on the same cross as Gr1 Queensland Oak winner Youngstar and Gr3 Epona Winner The Pinnacle."
