Happy days for filly
Well-related filly Happily To Be looks a three-year-old with a bright future in Australia for Waikato Stud.
The well-related filly has been lightly-tried by Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien and has made an encouraging start to her career.
The daughter of Pins placed in two of her first three starts before breaking her maiden at Seymour last time out.
Bred and part-owned by the Matamata nursery, she is a daughter of the O’Reilly mare Merrily.
She is a half-sister to the stakes winner Glad and the family of the champion mare Black Caviar.
Happily To Be is also a half-sister to the Stephen Marsh-trained Exuberant.
A $160,000 Karaka yearling, the son of Savabeel won the Listed Wellesley Stakes on debut.
