Redoute's Choice ex Forest Pearl

MISS FINLAND was bought by Badgers Bloodstock for AU$450,000 at the 2005 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

Miss Finland was trained by top South Australian trainer David Hayes. At the age of two years, she won the AAMI Golden Slipper, the world's richest juvenile race, which is run over 1,200 metres, and ran second in the Blue Diamond Stakes. As a three-year-old, her stellar form continued, which saw her win the Crown VRC Oaks, run over 2,500 metres at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, as well as further Group One wins in the Thousand Guineas, Australian Guineas and Arrowfield Stud Stakes. Miss Finland was named the "SPORTSMAN 2006 Horse of the Year.

In 2015, MISS FINLAND, became one of the rare champion fillies to also produce a Group 1 winner, when STAY WITH ME won the Schweppes Thousand Guineas... eight years after Miss Finland had won the same race.
