Now unbeaten in seven outings, Jin Jin’s four black type wins include a score in last year’s G3 Prix Perth.

Notable fillies sired by Canford Cliffs include the group/graded stakes winners Al Jazi, Fish River, La Falaise, Most Beautiful, Princess Asta and Princess Posh.

Canford Cliffs has three fillies on the upcoming Cape Thoroughbred Sales Farm Yearling Sale, including a filly (Lot 10) out of a half-sister to graded stakes winners Eight Street and Ottimo, a filly (Lot 23) out of a stakes winning daughter of National Assembly, and a filly (Lot 116) from the family of champion filly Taghrooda.
