In comparison to her half sister, Simply Russian, she had quite a bit more scope to grow into a quality filly. Much deeper in her girth and being an early November foal, she will have all the time she needs to mature, before coming into full training. She is the half-sister to black-type winners RIKITIKITANA and Rockin Russian.

Despite not being the biggest filly around, she has really come into her own over the past few months. A nicely balanced filly, she will run as a late 2 year old / early 3 year old. Pictured at track this morning, third in line.
October 15th, 2019
She hasn’t quite grown as much as we had hoped, although she was never going to be a big filly. With that said, she oozes quality. She will be on the farm for another 6-8 weeks and hopefully she fulls out a bit more.
July 15th, 2019
She is being broken in at Jane Thomas’ Far End Farm and we look forward to seeing her progress over the spring.
