Description:

'Tiny - but all go' and famous as the dam of Hyperion, Selene was also a grand racehorse in her own right, winning 15 1/2 races at 2 and 3 years including the Park Hill Stakes, Doncaster. She was remarkable at stud also. From her fifteen live foals she produced ten winners of thirty races.
