For over 100 years racehorses have been bred at Kia Ora Stud, where CANDIKA was born and raised before being sold as a yearling to Proven Thoroughbreds.
The second foal from Proven Thoroughbreds’ stakes winning filly CANDIKA. The first foal (by ZOUSTAR) was sold for $520k in 2021 and the third foal (also by ZOUSTAR) is being retained to race by the breeder. CANDIKA sadly passed while foaling last spring so this is her last offspring to go to auction.
A precocious daughter of SEBRING, CANDIKA was twice a pre-Christmas 2YO winner, before placing in the Magic Millions Classic behind CAPITALIST (first filly home) and winning the Princess Stakes over a mile as a 3YO. With prizemoney and broodmare sale proceeds, she returned $1 million to her owners.
By one of the hottest young sires in Australia. Broke the all-time record for number of individual winners in his second season and was champion third season sire by winners and earnings.
20% share retained by the breeder Kia Ora Stud, 10% share purchased by the trainers Steve O’Dea & Matt Hoysted.
From the same family as Group winners ASTRODAME, ULMANN, MAHISARA & ROCK CLASSIC.
