A strong and early running Super Vobis colt by unbeaten 2yo FIGHTING SUN. He is already impressing his trainers with his ultra professional attitude and owners shouldn't have to wait too long to see him up and going into his 2yo season like former FLR Ready To Run sale graduates SEE YOU IN SPRING, EXCEED EXPECT & LIBERTY FIRE!


Fighting Sun (by Northern Meteor)

** Very talented on the track, Fighting Sun was an unbeaten, Stakes Winning 2yo trained by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott and he was the Champion first season sire in Victoria.

** His life and stud career was tragically cut short in 2020 and this colt is part of very final crop to race by Fighting Sun

** Sire of Stakes Winners NEWHART & CHESS STAR plus the very good City winning 2yo, Stakes Placed 3yo and Flemington winner ROCCABASCERANA who was subsequently sold to Hong Kong, another City Winner & Stakes placed 3yo MISS INBETWEEN, smart 2yo winners & Melbourne city winners FLINDERS RIVER and ENTRAPPED, another Stakes placed & City winning 2yo CELESTIAL SOL plus of course, the really sharp 2 x City winning 2yo and 3rd in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview this year GULF OF SUEZ who is also trained by Ciaron & David.


Vintedge (by Flying Spur)

** A 6 x winner including the winner of the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes, Vintedge is still very young having only two foals to race in a winner and a placegetter

** Well related being a half-sister to Stakes Winner YOUTH’S EDGE as well as the Dam of the very good Sydney Stakes Winning filly EVERY ROSE who recently sold for $1.3 million in the Inglis Online Sale

** A solid family with good speed and our colt is bred on very similar Northern Meteor x Flying Spur cross as Winners THE ASTROLOGIST, SUN CITY & SPEAK FONDLY
