Pearl Of Alsace is a Tavistock mare out of Irion who has had a promising season as a four-year-old in the hands of trainers Shaune Ritchie and Colm Murray. Since winning on debut at New Plymouth she progressed quickly to win her next four starts, including the Group Three Cuddle Stakes. Her latest run in the Group One New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes saw her place an encouraging fourth. Having amassed $143,590 in career earnings thus far, she is an exciting mare for the future.
Her dam Irion has had a hugely successful start as a broodmare, producing three winners from three foals of racing age, including the hugely talented black-type filly Zourion (NZ) who is unbeaten so far.
