Dam: Forward Thinking
Foaled: Sep 17, 2019
This beautiful PARIAH filly out of the Charge Forward mare, FORWARD THINKING was purchased for $90,000 from the Arrowfield Stud draft at the 2021 Inglis Classic Sale and she is our final yearling on offer for the year. Team Snowden were delighted to secure her for what we believe was extremely good value in what was a very tough market this year.
She is a very racey, athletic type of filly who covers the ground very well when she moves and seems to have a very good mind. Interestingly FORWARD THINKING is a sister to COLORADO CLAIRE who is the dam of GUNNISON who we trained to win the GROUP 2 Todman Stakes back in 2017 later selling for A$1.4 million to Hong Kong.
Having also had the pleasure of training PARIAH for his full racing career here at Snowden Racing, where he went on to win the GROUP 3 Canonbury Stakes and GROUP 3 San Domenico Stakes, we are very familiar with the family and this filly brought back some very fond memories of those two very talented horses. (and not so fond memories of Pariah losing out by a nostril in the G1 Blue Diamond!)
That being said this filly carries a lot of traits that we seen in both Pariah and Gunnison at a young age so fingers crossed she will follow suit. She has completed the breaking in process and will head to the paddock for a well earned holiday. We will be expecting her back to Randwick in mid-September.
