Lonhro x Classic Vogue (NZ) Brown Filly: Like Father – Like Daughter
She looks more like WONDER WOMAN than a dainty PRINCESS, as our strong individual is by Champion Sire LONHRO ex CLASSIC VOGUE (NZ). It’s hard to believe this is a first foal of the mare, because she looks far bigger, stronger and masculine than most of the colts at the Magic Millions complex.
This filly certainly possesses the WOW FACTOR and has the Commercial Pedigree plus Genetics to match luscious looks.
Big, Strong, Tough, Athletic and Very Well Conformed, she is a contradiction to this description by the way she effortlessly glides over the ground, like she has been a catwalk model her entire life.
Whilst our contracted veterinarian Dr Tim Roberts made it easy for us when he gave her the “Thumbs Up” with crystal clear x-rays and a Grade 1 (clean) endoscopic evaluation.
A handful of others may look as good, but none look better than this lovely filly.
Our notes on the pedigree page were simple enough – “BUY IT” and we did.
LONHRO needs no introduction, he’s a true champion both as a racehorse and as a sire.
Champion three-year old, Champion miler, Horse of the Year and Champion sire, Sire of sires and Leading broodmare sire.

Whilst CLASSIC VOGUE (NZ) is the granddaughter of Flight Stakes and Silver Slipper Winner FIANCEE.
FIANCEE produced Stakes Winner ZIP ME UP and she is a daughter of Champion Australian 2yo Filly ATTENTIVE.
This is a serious female family that offers the genetics to be precocious however we have purchased this filly with the 3yo Classic Races as her target where she is bred to excel.
She rated highly on our genetic ratings with A+ 854%.
You never buy into fillies like this “YOU INVEST” and she represents fantastic upside both on the track and will have good residual value when her racedays conclude and she heads to the breeding barn.
You only have to look at the photo of the filly and even to the untrained eye, you will behold what we describe as high quality. She is the perfect addition to our racing stable.
Whilst we had a handful of yearlings on our list for Day 1 of the Magic Millions Sale, we purchased the two (2) fillies that we made our priority.
As they say, “take home the one you want, not the one you are left with” and that is exactly what we have achieved and have done so with exceptionally good value.
We can’t wait to share further news as to the stable she will head into and the share price she will be offered at.
