Late on Day 3 on the Gold Coast we picked up what we believe is the steal of the entire sale and the filly we loved from the first moment we saw her. Purchased for $200,000 + GST. EXCEED AND EXCEL has for a long time been the best two year old stallion in Australia.
He has produced an incredible 204 Stakes winners and 16 Group 1 winners including BIVOUAC, MICROPHONE and SEPTEMBER RUN. He produces early runners and this filly looks to fit that mould perfectly.
ATHENS is a regally bred mare by Medaglia D’oro and is a half sister to class Godolphin mares SAVATIANO, ATHIRI, VILANA and RAKOMELO. Make no mistake, this is a blueblood family that consistently produces fast horses and increases already outstanding residual value. See below link to pedigree and parade video:
On type this filly is a compact, strong and sharp looking filly who looks the ideal candidate to target at the early two year old races including the Magic Millions 2YO Classic as well as the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper.
