Fortuna acquires an Eminent Filly from the NZ Bloodstock 2023 Karaka Yearling Sale

She will now spell at Te Akau Stud in the Waikato ahead of being broken in and will then be prepared for racing in New Zealand by nine time Premiership winning Trainer, Mark Walker of Te Akau Racing Stables at Matamata

John Galvin says “Given the success we have been having with staying types I had requested our selection team of David Ellis, Mark Walker and Marcus Corban to select Filly with the physical characteristics to develop into a nice stayer and with a nice pedigree page.  When they bought Lot 446 to my attention and I saw that she was a half sister to the Group One Caulfield Guineas winner, ALOISIA, I thought we were no show to secure her within our budget of $120k, but remarkably, she was knocked down to our bid of just $75k – sometimes we get lucky ”

Eminent – Queen Boudicca Yearling Filly

Mark Walker  comments about this Filly – “Lot 446 really caught my eye when I was doing Video inpections – she is a good sized filly with a lovely athletic walk – her Sire Eminent is a well performed son of Frankel and while he has yet to make his mark as a Sire (his oldest progeny are just 2yo’s) he is throwing a lovely type of horse. This Filly’s half sister, ALOISIA (by Azamour) was good enough to with the Group One Caulfield 1000 Guineas over 1600 metres and the Group two Moonee Valley Vase over 2040m, so clearly could get over ground and notable, that as 2yo she ran 2nd in the Group One JJAtkins Stakes  over 1600m, so was very versatile. I expect that this Filly could well race in the Autumn as 2yo, but she will develop into a lovely NZ 1000 Guineas type as a 3yo and I would also expect her to be a genuine Oaks type of Filly in the Autumn of her 3yo year – she represents great value at $75k, I thought she would make double that .”
