Trained by:

Trainer: Shaun Dwyer

Here is a son of an emerging sire of quality middle-distance horses, REDWOOD, out of an eight-time winning mare.

In addition to MISS LEONIDAS, a winner of three races including a brilliant six length win at Moonee Valley, the breeders of this colt (Todd and Suzzanne Lichti) also bred Group winners VILLE VERDE and PURE ELATION.

Shares are now offered in this colt on behalf of the breeders, offering a terrific and cost-effective opportunity to buy into a racehorse and race with the breeders.

And of course this colt is trained by experienced horseman and trainer of integrity, SHAUN DWYER at Bendigo.


REDWOOD (by High Chaparral) raced at the elite level in Europe, Candada, Hong Kong and the UAE.

He won the Group 1 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes at Woodbine (Canada), plus a Group 3 and a Listed event. He also placed in three other Group 1 races: the Canadian International Stakes, the Hong Kong Vase and the Dubai Sheema Classic.

As a stallion he has sired 33 winners to date, with two stakes-winners (RISING RED and ROMANCER).

Swampland, Night’s Watch, Big Sur and High Sierra are other examples of his classy progeny performing well in metropolitan Victoria.


MERCI GRAND is a daughter of proven sire CHOISIR and half-sister to seven winners including two stakes-placed horses. She won eight races throughout across NSW, specialising at the 1200-1400m distances.

She has produced three siblings to this colt. The first, CEDAR GRANDE, has won three races and placed at Moonee Valley. Her second foal has raced just once to date for a second placing.


Of just nine runners with HIGH CHAPARRAL and CHOISIR on the opposite sides of their pedigree, six are already winners including the Group 1 winner THE WOW SIGNAL.


$4,340 per 5% includes all costs to 31-July plus nomination to the lucrative Inglis Race Series.

Note that this colt is being offered on behalf of the breeders. Become an owner directly with Dwyer Racing, receiving all invoices and communication from Shaun and his team.
