A striking grey 2yo gelding by HELMET and 1/2 brother to 3 city winners including Stakes winner DEJA BLUE & Stakes placed TRIPLE GOLD.

He is our third yearling by the sire, from the top producing mare MISS CHASKI is to be trained by Mat Ellerton and Simon Zahra at Flemington.

HELMET was an absolute star on the racetrack winning twice Group 1 level as a two year old before going on at three years old to win a classic edition of the Caulfield Guineas in record time. From only two crops of racing age, he has produced Group 1 winner THUNDER SNOW and Stakes winning 2yo’s ARCHIVES and LIMESTONE.

MISS CHASKI, is a two year old winner herself, this colt is a half bother to Stakes performed TRIPLE GOLD and recent Stakes winner, dual city winner and 2yo winner DEJA BLUE.

FLR’s Helmet 2yo gelding is a lovely moving horse with plenty of strength and substance about him and he certainly presents as a horse that should be up and running early for the team.

This gelding is $7,100 for a 5% share inclusive of purchase price, purchase costs, bloodstock agent fee, Inglis Race Series, breaking-in, transport, agistment etc plus insurance coverage and all costs inclusive to 30 November 2017.
