Message from Luke Oliver Racing

"A striking filly with a pedigree to match, this Al Maher filly was the standout filly of the Premier Sale from those we inspected. By a proven sire of tough fillies in Al Maher, what particularly appealed to me is the mare, Amwaj, is a producer of three standout performers - including the three-time Group winner Sir Dex - from uncredentialed sires Dexter (GB), Al Khawaaneeg (USA) and El Moxie (USA). Al Maher is a significant upgrade for this mare making me very excited for what this filly might achieve." - Luke Oliver

Septemer 2011 - She has been in pre-training for a few weeks now and will head to Caulfield shortly for an education campaign to learn all things Caulfield.
