I'm pleased to offer this cracking type of colt by the very good young son of Commands in Epaulette. This colt is out of Honolulu Lass, a well bred mare by Hinchinbrook from the Group 2 winner Velasco.

I loved this colt from the moment I first saw him as a foal at Yarraman Park in the Hunter Valley. He has always had presence and this was evident at this year's Magic Million's Gold Coast Sale where was the 12th last horse to go through the ring. I'm certain this cost the breeders as he would have been more expensive earlier in the sale.

He is a great walker and gets around with plenty of swagger. He is a very attractive looking horse which is a strong trait of the progeny of Epaulette.

As soon as I bought him Mathew de Kock whose father trained Soqrat, the Group 1 winning son of Epaulette asked if he could train the horse. I had two other enquiries from trainers seeing if I would send him to them to train.

Patrick Payne trained Honolulu Lass and said if not for an injury she would have been at least a metropolitan class mare. She still won twice and was retired after a light racing career.

Velasco is a full sister to She's Curvaceous the dam of Rich Hips, the Group 3 winner last season at Flemington.

This is a very current family.

I love the progeny of Epaulette with both the yearlings I purchased by him being winners. Chalmers won on debut at Moonee Valley and Five Star Gal, the winner of four.
