About

Persephone Heights is a stunning thoroughbred mare by the outstanding stallion Golden Heights, and descends from multiple Group 1 winning stallions on her motherline. She is a race winner in her own right and was placed multiple times in her racing career. She was bred by Chris & Rena Luton from their lovely mare Jalland (by the Group 1 winning racehorse Jalmood).

Not only has she proved herself as an athlete on the track, ‘Percy’ is a beautiful moving horse with an elastic trot like her sire. She is an extremely attractive mare with an exquisite head and has athleticism to burn.
