This Big strong colt buy Dawn Approach was brought at the recent Magic Millions sale and looks a tough as nails get up and run type

Dawn Approach is extremely popular already in Australia after getting a number of early running types and this colt looks exactly that !

He has a wonderful temperament for a colt at this stage which is no surprise being raised on Grenville Stud and then intention with him is to target the early 2yr old races

We loved this colt and had he been on the Gold Coast in January, we think he would have made six figures!.
Dawn Approach is getting the job done at Stud, and this colt is very athletic with a great attitude.

He will head straight to the breakers and, like our colts purchased in January, will target the big 2YO race on the Gold Coast in the New Year.
With the stallion doing big things in Europe, and getting 2YO runners here in Australia, we expected to pay more for him.

He is both BOBS qualified and VOBIS so can race in either NSW or VICTORIA.

Barry Bowditch Magic Millions ‘He wouldn’t have been out of place in our January sale - lovely colt, well bought.’

Since we have brought him he has handled his “jobs” with ease and has the right attitude to suggest that all going well he should remain a colt
