By Rip Van Winkle, out of a Golan mare and closely related to AEROVELOCITY (Pins-Exodus, by Kaapstad-Lady Genesis) from the same family as Lucky Feather (Darci Brahma-Glamoury, by Volksraad-The Faerie Queen).
This beautifully natured, kind filly has been race prepared but knee soreness prevented her from racing. She is a lovely moving, scopey filly, with good depth and bone, and stands approximately 16.2hh. I cannot stress enough how delightfully natured and easy to handle this lovely filly is.
