Bred by top KZN breeders Spring Valley Stud, this is an Irish Flame filly out of the National Emblem mare, Galingale who is the half sister to EXHILARATION (winner of the Premiers Champion Stakes Gr1).
She is a cracking filly with plenty of scope.
From the family that has produced the likes of GRECIAN GALE (12 time winner including the Turffontein F&M Stakes Gr2), WENDYWOOD (winner of the Woolavington Gr1 and Champion 3YO Middle distance Female in 2008), POWER KING (winner of the Vodacom Durban July Gr1) and BEZANOVA(winner of the Charity Mile Gr2).
She covers lots of ground and this is an indicator of the big action she will have at top speed. A classic, strong looking filly who we are very excited about. She will take up her place at Kevin and Alyson Wrights yard in KZN.

Flame Of Elegance has really started to turn the corner. Seen here having a grass gallop this morning and it was clear that she was the superior filly of the two, closest to the camera. This will bring her on nicely.

A beautifully balanced filly, she has unfortunately struggled with a few colic related issues over the summer. We have let her spend most of this year back at the farm, but being a filly who is bred for ground we have never considered rushing her. She is most likely going to debut as a 3yr old.

Update on Flame of Elegance, she has been broken in and has been cantering every day for the past 6 weeks. She was bought in off the farm on Tuesday 27th November and has already settled in at Summerveld, with Alyson Wright. Within a day of arriving, she has already had her first workout at Summerveld – clip below. She is the second horse in the clip and is being led by a very smart Querari colt.
