17ARCETRI DAWN was purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale. A big filly by Jackson, out of the Bel Esprit (AUS) mare Arcetri Dawn (AUS). She was bred by Boland Stud.
A big flashy filly by Jackson, out of family of sprinter-milers, she had the presence of a feature racehorse. Surprisingly big for a first foal, she moves like a classic Oaks type filly, although her pedigree would suggest that a mile would be her preferred trip. Her mother (Arcetri Dawn) is the half sister to ARCETRI PINK who earned just under R1 500 000 during her career, winning from 1000m – 1600m. Her biggest achievements – winning the Gauteng Fillies Guineas (Gr2) and the Ipi Tombe Challenge (Gr2). She was also Gr1 placed three times.

She has been let down and being such a big filly, she is going to take a bit of time. One thing we are certain about is that the spring season is going to do her the world of good. She has the appearance of classic filly and she moves like on too.
