Exosphere - Opito Bay (IRE)

 Opito bay started a run of fillies from maiden mares when she produced a quality bay filly by Exosphere. From a European family steeped in black type this young mare will be bred to a Pencarrow product in Darci Brahma this season. Being bred to two such outstanding racehorses in her first two years at stud should provide a good platform for her breeding career.

filly : 19/08/18


 Opito Bay has produced her second foal, an attractive filly by proven sire Darci Brahma. Her first foal is a precocious filly by Exosphere and means this young mare is off to a good start in her breeding career. She will return to Darci Brahma this season.
