The colt ticked all the boxes for us. This is one impressive looking colt and we could not believe our luck in securing her for such outstanding value. He is certainly well put together, very muscular and all in proportion. This colt is a great type, nicely balanced and easy on the eye. Very intelligent and has a great temperament for such a young horse.

A colt with quality, presence and is a great mover. Big strong colt while having very good length and athleticism. Well boned and above all an early running type there is a lot to like.

Our filly has passed 100% clean on her scope, x-ray.
