Sunlight welcomes filly

Sunlight welcomes filly

Star sprinter Sunlight has given birth to a filly by Home Affairs.

Coolmore announced the safe arrival of the foal on Thursday morning, with the filly Sunlight’s third foal.


Her first, by Justify, is a 2YO chestnut colt named Dawn Service, who is trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. Waterhouse & Bott splashed $1.4m to secure the colt at the Magic Millions Sale on the Gold Coast earlier this year.

During a glittering career on the race track, Sunlight won three Group 1s and just over $6.5m in prizemoney.

She was sold as a broodmare to Coolmore for $4.2m.

Her second foal is a colt by Wootton Bassett.
