Little sister for superstar Winx

Vegas Showgirl with her foal, a half-sister to superstar Winx by Japanese super sure Deep Impact.

Winx’s mum Vegas Showgirl has given birth to a filly by Japanese stallion Deep Impact.

The filly was born at Segenhoe Stud in the New South Wales’ Hunter Valley, Australia, at 11am on Tuesday morning.

The filly is guaranteed to fetch a high price-tag given the untimely death of her sire – Japanese sensation Deep Impact – in July. However, owner-breeder John Camilleri says he has no plans to sell her.

“You never say never in this game but I have no plans to sell the foal regardless of whether it is a colt or filly,” Camilleri said in a press interview last month.
