Testa Rossa has been one of the most consistent stallions in the country for a long time now, having sired the likes of ORTENSIA, ROSTOVA, UNENCUMBERED & TESTA MY PATIENCE. Importantly, he is the stallion of Elite Thoroughbreds purchased & syndicated galloper, TESTASHADOW - winner of 7 races, including the 2017 Magic Millions cup & almost $1.3 million in prize money!

War Flower was a very speedy mare who won her maiden by almost 6 lengths! Her pedigree is littered with black type, including the likes of GLAMOUR PUSS, VISION AND POWER & ESPURANTE among many others!

Educator Comments: A strong colt who always seemed to give his all when tested. A very quick learner. Has a lovely uphill canter. Has a great action and moves well - Shane Rose (Bimbadeen Park)

She will be trained by multiple Group 1 winning city trainer Gary Portelli who helped secure this filly at the 2017 Inglis Classic sale. Elite Thoroughbreds will be retaining an interest in this colt.

The share price is inclusive of all expenses until June 1st 2017, breaking in & education cost, Inglis race series nomination, initial Golden Slipper and Golden Rose race nomination and all related registration and syndicate fees.
