Fantastic commercial opportunity.

RED SPOT SPECIAL consistently produces outstanding types that can run, so far she has produced 2 foals to race for 2 winners, including city winning RUBY RED HEART who was widely touted as a black type filly after winning her first start in the city, unfortunately she had a year off racing and almost died after racing on the ill-fated Eagle Farm track at the last meeting before it was closed while the track was replaced.

Further to this she is the dam of one of the top lots at this week's NZB Ready to Run, with her 2yo by HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR being sold for $420,000.

Possibly the most enticing part of this package is the fact she is holding a 45 day positive pregnancy to the highly exciting and commercial Menari.

MENARI has had widely publicized fertility issues so there is certain to be commercial demand and interest in his weanlings and yearlings with such limited supply.


This mare has 2 unraced progeny including an impressive DREAM AHEAD yearling and the recent $420k HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR colt, not to mention the future foal by MENARI - if a HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR can sell for $420k, what can a MENARI sell for!?

This is a rare commercial mare that presents with multiple upsides and potential for a fantastic return.
