Paving the way, G1 heroine QUINTESSENTIAL struck trans-Tasman success with wins in the G1 Queensland Oaks, G2 Eagle Farm Cup, G3 Desert Gold Stakes and G3 Chairman’s Hcp. Following in her footsteps, OUR FAMOUS EVE registered black-type in the G2 Japan-NZ International Trophy and was stakes performed in the G1 Easter Hcp and G2 Royal Stakes.
