FLR are thrilled to release two exciting fillies from the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale by super sires LONHRO & CHOISIR with Mat Ellerton & Simon Zahra at Flemington.
Lonhro x Nakaaya filly
Lonhro x Nakaaya filly - another Heatherly?
FLR are thrilled to secure this quality filly by Champion sire LONHRO at the recent Inglis Easter Yearling Sale out of Group 2 winner NAKAAYA.

Lonhro needs little introduction. A Champion on the track and in the breeding barn, he’s sired 66 Stakes winners including Group 1 winners PIERRO (Triple Crown Winning, Champion 2yo), EXOSPHERE, BEADED, IMPENDING, DENMAN, BOUNDING and former Ellerton Zahra stable star, Group 2 winning and Group 1 placed HEATHERLY – also selected from the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale!


Ellerton Zahra Group 2 winner & Group 1 placed Heatherly - also by Lonhro & under $100k purchase from the Easter sale - can lightning strike twice??

A strong, good sized, athletic, and scopey filly with a great temperament - she’s very much in the mould of her super sire and she’s out of the Group 2 winner Nakaaya, producer of 2 foals to race for 2 winners with Zolani winning twice more since the catalogue went to print!


“We found Heatherly at this sale for only $90k and hopefully this filly can follow in her footsteps” said co-trainer Mat Ellerton.

“She’s just a very nice filly. She's got some furishing to do but the frame is there.  She's big and strong, a great mover and she has plenty of scope. She looks a nice 3yo Classic prospect for us."

“The Easter sale can represent great value if you do your homework. This filly descends from a nice black-type family including Group 1 winner ROYAL PURLER and like Heatherly, she was a very astute find by the team and we managed to secure her for a fantastic price” said FLR’s Ashleigh Dowley.

“She was probably a bit backward at the sale but she’s come on beautifully since and she’ll furnish into a ripping 3yo filly of us. We really target fillies at this sale with that real upside to their pedigree which this filly has. By a Champion sire from a Group 2 winning mare who’s doing the job with 2 to race for 2 winners. If we can put some black type into this filly or one of her siblings does it for us, she’s worth plenty!”

Lonhro x Nakaaya filly

Hey big mover!! FLR's Lonhro filly learning her paces in breaking-in

“We secured Stolen Angel from this sale for only $60k who had similar upside to her pedigree. She won a maiden for us and then unfortunately broke down before she finished her 3yo year and owners got a great result for her at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale selling for $110k”.

FLR’s Lonhro filly is currently nearing the end of her breaking-in education and breaker Todd Edwards has commented that “she’s a great natured filly who is doing everything asked of her without any fuss. She’s got a lovely, big stride. Very athletic.”

Choisi x Jive Talk 
Choisir x Jive Talk filly
FLR’s second purchase from the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale is this precocious, sharp style of filly by one of Australia’s most consistent sires CHOISIR out of the 2 x winning full-sister to Group 1 winner HOLLER in Jive Talk.

Choisir year in, year out, continually produces horses at the highest level and has had an incredible 2016-17 season with Group One winning 3yo DIVINE PROPHET Group One winning 2yo THE MISSION and further Stakes winning CHAMP ELECT, ZENALICIOUS, TAKING AIM and recent Royal Ascot Group Two 2yo winner RAJASINGHE.


Group 1 winner Holler - the full-brother to FLR's Choisir filly's dam Jive Talk

One of FLR’s favourite sires, this filly becomes the second filly by Choisir secured this year by the team and she’s incredible value from the Easter sale.


“A steal. She’s a really sharp type and I don’t think we’ll have to wait long to see her at the races. She’s a nice size for a first foal, has good leg, good bone, well balanced filly. She moves with a bit of purpose” said Mat Ellerton.

This filly is out of the two time winning Commands mare Jive Talk, the full sister to Group One winner Holler who’s first foals will hit the ground in 2018. It’s a well known, fast family, which includes Champion Sprinter YELL and dual Group 1 winning 2yo ANTHEMS.

"Like FLR’s Lonhro filly, she’s got very nice residual value in her page being out of a winning full-sister to Holler. His first foals will be all the rage in the next couple of years and by the time they come around, hopefully we’ve added some success with this filly on the track to add to her value” said FLR’s Ashleigh Dowley.

Choisir x Jive Talk filly

Mind on the job!  FLR's Choisir x Jive Talk filly in breaking-in

“Typical of her sire, she’s a forward type and looks an early runner. Holler was a gun and I don’t think we saw the best of him before he went off to Europe while Choisir is a sire we absolutely love. He continually gets runners in the big races 2yo & 3yo races every year."

FLR's Choisir x Jive Talk filly is also nearing the end of her breaking-in preparation and all reports from the breaker are that she’s “a filly with a bit of spunk about her but she’s learning quickly and is a nice, forward moving type.  She should get up and run."
