4 year old Bay Filly


Trainer's Name: Ciaron Maher

Harney Stone Racing are excited to offer for syndication this highly promising, ready to race filly out of New Zealand by the impeccably bred, up and coming stallion NIAGARA.

The filly now known as CATARACTA (GRAVITY FALLING NZ) was secured by our agent and New Zealand’s leading bloodstock agent Phill Cataldo who quoted “Athletic filly with a great action, strong trial form and a filly that can develop into a Stakes horse as a 3YO”, whose recent successful purchases consists of AZKADELLIA, GINGERNUTS and current star ALOISIA.

She comes to Australia following an extremely impressive trial victory where she traveled 5 wide throughout to win by a commanding 3 lengths without being let out of second gear. At Caulfield on the 9th of January she was given a soft jump out where she was again very impressive, settling at the back of the field before cruising home to finish 3rd in the fastest time of the day. 

Her stallion NIAGARA, based at stud in New Zealand, was trained by Gai Waterhouse who quoted "I've always had a great opinion of this colt. He was the most magnificent yearling, he is by ENCOSTA DE LAGO, and he's got a physique to die for."

Her dam PRECIOUS MAREE was a dual winner in New Zealand out of the boom sire of broodmares AL AKBAR. She herself has produced 2 foals to race and have importantly shown great acceleration in their careers to date.

This filly's family is highlighted by the champion Australasian stayer and 8 times Group 1 winner VEANDERCROSS. It also contains listed winner and Group placed MORGAN DOLLAR and Group 1 Adelaide Cup winner PILLAGE 'N' PLUNDER.

She is a lovely moving filly with the attributes and pedigree to suggest she will only continue to improve when she gets out to a mile and beyond. Currently in work at Caulfield with her preparation underway it won't be long before she is ready to officially trial and is expected to be racing over the autumn carnival.

We have already received a lot of interest regarding this filly so act quickly to ensure you don't miss out and be a part of the new generation which is Harney Stone Racing.
