Cary, North Carolina - After praising McCall Zerboni as a, "thoroughbred," yesterday, head coach Paul Riley announced that the North Carolina Courage acquired another thoroughbred as Australian filly Art Series was announced as a new Courage midfielder, on Wednesday.
"Like McCall, we feel that Art can run in our midfield all day," stated Riley to The Nutmeg News. "Art Series is an award winning Australian thoroughbred and we are happy to welcome a Matilda to our roster."
Art Series is a 3yo bay filly (female) from Australia trained by Darren Mcauliffe, who is based at Lark Hill. She is sired by the stallion Sebring out of the dam Left Alone.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed but Riley indicated that he believes the Australian international can make a difference with his team immediately.
"We can use some players that will run and Art Series can run all day," stated Riley. "We plan on putting her through the beep test on Friday and expect that this rare thoroughbred international will put all our previous players to shame."
We reached out to Ms. Series for a comment but she stated, "neigh."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Art Series gets a red card in the first game for unsporting defecation.
