Outstanding colt by Champion sire Snitzel - bred for speed, bred for 2YO speed - with leading trainer of 2YOs in Tony McEvoy.

"He has the X factor this colt. He's pumped under saddle, great top line, depth and strength to train on into the Spring as a 2YO" Tony McEvoy

He has completed a faultess first six month's in Tony's system and is putting his hand up as one of the stable's leading 2YO prospect.

This outstanding colt is by Australia's Champion Sire of last season in Snitzel & his results simply speak for themselves:
- Leading Sire By Prizemoney - $16.1m (new record)
- Leading Sire Of Stakes Winners - 26 (equal's Danehill's record)
- Leading Sire Of 2-Year-Old Winners - 32 (new record)

Boasting an incredible 15% Stakes Perfomers to Runners, 11 Group 1 performers, 13 2YO Group performers he simply has no peer in Australia.

Our blueblood colt descends from the champion 'Discreet' family - one of the best families in the Australian Stud Book. Highlighted by Champion 2YO filly - BE DISCREET - a 7-time 2YO winner the family includes Group 1 winner MAYBE DISCREET, Group 2 winner SERENLY DISCREET, Group 3 winners MAYBE DISCREET, SHE'S DISCREET & GILDED ANGEL plus Stakes winners HALO AGAIN, OAHU & I'M DISCREET.

So let's not be discreet - this is a colt with a stallions pedigree and a privilege to offer to potential owners.

“A terrific buy - he's a really lovely horse. A great moving horse from a family that only know how to win" said trainer Tony McEvoy.

Snitzel colt
"He's well balanced, good mover, he's got a great attitude - switched on colt and that'll take him a long way.

Looks an early running type for the team and you'll be hearing more about him!"

The colt was FLR's highest rated yearling from the Inglis Classic Sales where he set the sale ring alight during the Gold Riband Session of the Sale.

"To add a colt of this quality to the team is so exciting. He's powerful, precocious but his outriding quality is he's a terrific athlete and he's so imposing" said FLR's Ashleigh Dowley

"The sire needs no introduction, the Dam side needs no introduction and he's a special colt who can achieve great heights for his owners."

Bloodstock Agent Paul Willetts reiteraed the team's comments.

"Simply, I rated this colt the best colt in the Sale. Terrific mover, powerful, athletic, great attitude, a real presence about him and honestly at the price the team weren't even close to done on our budget. Mum’s first foal a winner and she competed in the early Blue Diamond lead-in races… no doubt, she’ll be a top producing mare and she’s done a terrific job here."
