Bay Filly

Well-bred Pencarrow filly Aloft (NZ) (Atlante) is trained by Steven Ramsay and Julia Ritchie and now has three starts for two wins. She won a Rating 65 race on her second start, after winning a 1250m maiden race at Rotorua on debut in November 2019. She also ran credibly in a black type race, which was her third start.


Aloft’s half-sisters include rising star and Group Two winner Supera (NZ) (Savabeel) and multiple Group Three winner Eleanora (NZ) (Makfi). Aloft’s dam is Sopra Tutto (NZ) (Van Nistelrooy), who is the dam of five winners from six foals to race and is out of Champion mare Ethereal (NZ) (Rhythm).

Sopra tutto has foaled a very athletic filly by first season sire Atlante. This mare has been recently represented by Eleanora who has delivered some sterling performances over the Melbourne spring carnival. Her win in the Ethereal stakes , named after her grandmother, was followed by a brave effort for third in the VRc oaks. Sopra tutto will return to Makfi this spring.
