VADAMOS - Persuasive (NZ)

Persuasive has produced a quality filly by Group one winning miler Vadamos out of a five time-winning Darci Brahma mare. This filly looks like a natural staying type as you would expect from a pedigree that contains the influence of Monson, Montjeu, Zabeel & Danehill.

Turn Me Loose (NZ) - Persuasive (NZ)

Persuasive has delivered a very attractive filly by Champion Miler Turn Me Loose. Persuasive won five races showing speed & determination. This filly is showing that same speed in her paddock movement.

filly : 10/11/21

Ten Sovereigns (IRE) - Persuasive (NZ)

Persuasive has foaled a robust filly by promising young sire Ten Sovereigns. This foal has more bone and muscle than her previous offspring and it seems she has matured into a productive broodmare now.
