Athletic Filly by Horse of the Year DISSIDENT- out of a Stakes Winning Mare!

Mar 17, 2020

2015 Horse of The Year and 2015 Champion sprinter DISSIDENT is a five time Group 1 winning son of the 2008 Golden Slipper winner, Champion 2YO & sadly departed SEBRING. Out of the ANABAA mare Diana’s Secret, DISSIDENT hails from a strong female lineage, the hallmark of many good sires. 

DISSIDENT kicked his career off well, winning the Blue Diamond Preview on debut. At three, he saluted in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas but it was at 4 that DISSIDENT really started to bloom, winning 4 x Group 1’s that year (All Ages S.; CF Orr S.; Memsie S.; Makybe Diva S. ) and securing the Horse of the Year crown.

Artie Schiller mare MEZERAY MISS, the dam of this filly, won 2 races as a 2YO including one in town and was a Stakes winner at 3 winning the Listed MRC Twilight Stakes. Second dam AQUALUNA has a perfect 3-winners-from-3-to-race record at stud and Stakes performing third dam Dantain has produced 9 winners in the breeding barn.
DISSIDENT progeny have been in high demand since his Freshman year, selling to $800K as Yearlings. Already the Sire of Stakes winner PANCHO as well as Group 1 placed Foxborough (Flight S. [G1])and stakes horses Reformist and Challa, DISSIDENT currently sits 7th on the Second Season Sires table by earnings.

At the sales this filly had a real presence about her. A good, striding filly, she oozes athleticism and has a great attitude. Her short cannons and depth of girth sealed the deal for us – and at the price we were able to purchase her for it was a no-brainer!. We are thrilled that she is going to be trained at the proven Ellerton and Zahra stables giving her every chance of success.
