A lovely style of colt by a very progressive, young sire, secured for a steal at the Inglis Classic Sale. A brother to two winners and he descends from a deep, international black type family.

- Very athletic, scopey colt with great strength in his shoulder & hindquarter, great bone and light on his feet with a loose walk

- Looks a lovely late 2yo / 3yo type and his sire is doing the job with progeny only improving into their 3yo year

- Epaulette, a Multiple G1-winning sprinter with three first-crop juvenile Group winners including, Soqrat, Meryl, Military Zone and Khulaasa

- No Australian first-season sire has ever had more Group winners.
Dam Famous Lilly now 3 to race for 2 winners (with the third a promising 2yo who has raced at high metropolitan level), also including a recent winner in town for the third time in succession.

- A deep international pedigree loaded with black type

- Excellent value colt with Group 1 trainers EZR who excel at getting the best out of our racehorses and have an outstanding record with fellow bargain buys like SMART COUPE!

- Share price includes purchase price, purchase costs and insurance coverage until 31 January 2020.
