With the title awarded to the most outstanding three-year-old filly of her year in New Zealand, the Lisa Latta-trained filly Dijon Bleu (NZ) (Burgundy) became the newest member of the honour roll when awarded the 2017-18 Filly of the Year.

The ten races throughout the season are keenly contested and with significant prizes for the owner, trainer and breeder of the ultimate Series winner. The New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year winner immediately becomes a highly valuable breeding proposition and earns her connections $50,000 in bonus cheques including $10,000 for her breeder, $10,000 for her trainer and $30,000 for her owner. 

The Filly of the Year Series trophy and bonus cheques are presented to the winning connections at the Horse of the Year Awards.
