Sassie was purchased at the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sales 2019 and was formerly trained by Sylvester Kirk. She is a nice staying type and a half sister to four times winner Percy Street. Before coming to the yard she had won at Brighton and twice at Kempton.

Sassie won her first race for her new connections at York in October over an extended two miles and acts very nicely on soft ground.
