We’re proud to announce the acquisition from the Milkwood Sale of a lovely pedigreed filly, National Seeker, who will be joining the Backworth broodmare band.
National Seeker is a full sister to the top sprinter National Title and black type performers, National Strike and Burmese. National Assembly is currently the damsire of top 3-year-old Trinity House, among a score of other high-class performers. This is the family of such top performers, and sires, as Leopard Strike and Jay Peg.
We’re exited about the oportunity to introduce this wonderful family into our broodmare band and are considering sending National Seeker to VAR.
