ETHEREAL
Rhythm (USA) - Romanee Conti (Sir Tristram)

The darling of the 2001/02 season with handicap victories in the Group 1 VRC Melbourne Cup, Group 1 VATC Caulfield Cup and a sensational WFA performance in the Group 1 STC The BMW Stakes. Ethereal represents the third generation of her Pencarrow family, being out of Hk-1 Hong Kong Cup winner Romanee Conti who in turn is out of the wonderful foundation mare Richebourg. Ethereal was awarded the Waikato Horse of the Year Award and the Australian Champion Stayer of the Year Award for her multiple Group 1 wins. Her first foal, a filly by Giant's Causeway - named Uberalles - won the Group 2 Great Northern Guineas and was third in the Group 1 New Zealand Derby, and her 2005 colt, Aetherius, by Nureyev’s sire son, Stravinsky, sold for $1,300,000 at the Karaka Premier sale in 2007. She was covered in 2012 by dual Champion NZ Sire O'Reilly.
