Filly of the Year

Throughout a proud history spanning more than 50 years, the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Series has repeatedly unveiled superstars of the racetrack and the breeding barn. But the 2023-24 edition of the series turned out to be one for the ages.

At the end of the exciting 11-race series, the name added to the honour roll as the 52nd Filly of the Year was the exceptional Molly Bloom (NZ) (Ace High).

Winner of the 2023-24 Filly of the Year, Molly Bloom (NZ).

Molly Bloom was bought for $150,000 by Wexford Stables at Karaka 2022, where she was offered by Seaton Park.

The eleven races throughout the season are keenly contested and with significant prizes for the owner, trainer and breeder of the ultimate Series winner. The NZB Filly of the Year winner immediately becomes a highly valuable breeding proposition and earns her connections $50,000 in bonus cheques including $10,000 for her breeder, $10,000 for her trainer and $30,000 for her owner.
