Arrowfield Stud‏Verified account @ArrowfieldStud
Arrowfield filly Earth Angel salutes on debut to become the first ever winner for Kentucky Derby & Dubai World Cup hero Animal Kingdom!

First Winner for Animal Kingdom
Royally bred Arrowfield homebred Earth Angel provided her Kentucky Derby and Dubai World Cup winning sire Animal Kingdom (USA) with his first winner at Ballarat on Wednesday.

The two year-old daughter of Arrowfield's former Champion Two and Three Year Old filly Miss Finland has been given time to mature and was having her first start for the Hayes / Dabernig training partnership in the 1200 metre maiden.

Ridden patiently by Damien Oliver she settled back in the field and after working her way into clear running found the line with a late rush to claim a long neck win.

I'm such a sucker for mare/foal photos. She's such a pretty little thang. Can't wait to see Miss Finland's Deep Impact foal!

Beautiful photos by my favorite photographer. :D
Earth Angel appears to have inherited some of Animal Kingdom's nicest qualities; balance, chiseled head, deep chest and that lovely red-gold color.

The filly is really quite lovely. I'm an Animal Kingdom fan, so am glad to see he is getting such high quality mares and is producing offspring like Earth Angel. I hope the filly goes on to win some stakes.
