This filly by Headwater was recently purchased from the Gold Coast Magic Millions National Yearling Sale. Headwater’s oldest progeny are now 3YO’s and are starting to perform well on the track. Such horses include Wisdom Of Water, who is now being trained by Mick Price, this colt placed 4th in the 2YO Magic Millions Classic and won the Group Three Ken Williams Memorial Classic. Other progeny include Listed place getter Be Water My Friend, and exciting 2YO winner Hydro Star who is a Melbourne Metro winner to name a few. 

Headwater sits equal first for the First Season Sires on winners, he is an exciting emerging sire with him just covering his best book of mares last season so there is upside to come in his progeny. A pure speed horse, Headwater was sired by the Group 1 Newmarket winner Exceed & Excel, out of a Gr.1 Oakleigh Plate winner River Dove.

Out of the dam Moon Of Baroda, a daughter of Shamardal, she is a half sister to Black Type performs Vaillain and Fashion. She has had one foal to race who is a four time winner over 1400m to 1900m. The dam of Moon Of Baroda is that of True Jewels, a winner of over $986K, she was a Grpup One Blue Diamond winner and placed in numerous Black Type races.

This filly is now at Kolora Lodge in Queensland where she will begin her breaking in and education process. She will then spell up there, pre train and then come to Caulfield.

Purchased for $110,000, ownership opportunities in the filly includes purchase price, transport from the sales, vetting (including scope, x-ray inspections and clinical exam), twelve month mortality insurance, emergency surgery cover, breaking in, agistment, Magic Millions Race Series, Blue Diamond & Golden Slipper nominations and GST.
