A star in the making, purchased from the well regarded Amarina Farm draft at the Magic Million Gold Coast. We certainly bought him for unders, our bloodstock agent, Sheamus Mills valued the colt at $200,000 and Gerald Ryan thought he was outstanding type.

Gerald Ryan (Trainer) comments: When I first saw the colt up at Amarina Park, nice big strong horse, athletic, moves well. Then I saw him a month later up at the sales, same horse but he had improved heaps. He’d gone right on from where I saw him a month early. It’s a good purchase by Bluebloods.

Sheamus Mills (bloodstock agent) comments: Lovely, neat, good moving colt. I reckon he is the type of horse that will get up and go early. He is from a precocious family and he has the looks to match.

David Mourad (BBT Racing Manager) comments: Really nice colt this, a get up and run type of horse. He is not overly big, but these are the types that don’t take forever to mature and they can get to the track nice and early. Good knees on him, knitted up in the knees. By Rubick a sire that Gerald Ryan trained, he is going to train this horse so obviously he knows the sire well and know the progeny well. Rubick has turned out to be a fantastic sire, Everest winner Yes Yes Yes, Rubisaki and a handful of other horses very fast just like there sire. This horse I thought was one of the steals of the sale $50,000 for a Rubick that neat correct put together well. Can’t ask for much more that. Certainly one to get involved with at a good price.

He has currently is education at Doran Park with astute breaker Gordon Pratt (comments). Very cool, calm and collected customer all the way. Good temperament, very easy to train. Strong individual, very powerful in his stride. Gets along the ground really well. Handled everything physically and mentally which is great. I like him, very trainable.

This colt is closely related to 7 individual stakes winners including Group 1 winner PRIZED ICON.

Our Rubick colt has also passed 100% clean on his scope, x-ray and clinical examination.


RUBICK is from the most precocious if champion sire and proven sire of sires ENCOSTA DE LAGO. Brilliantly fast and Beautifully bred. Out of SLIDING CUBE, a Group winner over 1000m and three-quarter sister to Champion sire REDOUTE’S CHOICE.

Time form’s highest-rated 2yo colt of his generation. Rated equal to Encosta De Lago’s star sire son NORTHERN METEOR at 3 years. Champion second season sire and Champion Australian 3yo sire in 2020. Set a new record for earnings by an Australian Second crop sire with over $10 million!


SWERTEMO by LOOKIN AT LUCKY. This is her second foal. She is the daughter of ZUTARA a winner at 2. A multiple group performer. SWERTEMO is also the half-sister to WHISPERED SECRET a 2-time winner 2. Winner of the Fernhill Handicap at Listed level and 3rd ATC Champagne Stakes Group 1.
