This lovely moving, athletic colt with a terrific temperament, depth girth and good hindquarter carries all the qualities SAVABEEL steps his best progeny with.

This colt had a good first campaign before heading out to spell. Now he's looking better than ever in great condition. Best time to get involved with a colt that has such a great pedigree.

He is the second foal from the Stakes winning HIGH CHAPARRAL mare in FAIRY OAK, herself a 100% winning producer with two runners for two winners.

There is so much to like about this colt!
- He will be trained by multiple Group 1 Classic winning trainer CIARON MAHER, trainer of Derby winner RUTHVEN, VRC Oaks winners JAMEKA & SET SQUARE and of course Caulfield Cup winner JAMEKA
- He is by Savabeel - producer of staying stars LUCIA VALENTIA (AJC Oaks Winner), SANGSTER (VRC Derby winner), BRAMBLES (Qld Derby winner) etc
- He is from the HIGH CHAPARRAL Stakes winner FAIRY OAK
- He was bought off the farm that sold 10-time Group 1 winner SO YOU THINK, 3-time HK Group 1 winner AEROVELOCITY and Group 1 winner MONACO CONSUL

Windsor Park are great breeders and they produce tough, sound racehorses. This colt is in the mold of Savabeel’s best and his 53 STAKES WINNERS from 567 Runners at a strike-rate of 10% Stakes Winners to Runners is as good as it gets!!!

Trackwork Report - 24 July

"FLR's Savabeel x Fairy Oak colt arrived at Caulfield last week for his first educational campaign with trainer Ciaron Maher after completing a fortnight of pre-training at Cranbourne.

He's a lovely style of colt who's enjoying his first campaign here at Caulfield. He took a couple of days to get used to all the sights and sounds of the big city stable but he's nice and settle now in his new environment and routine. Physically, he's a very attractive and athletic type who's a good size for his age and he moves along beautifully on the track.

The aim of this preparation is to introduce your colt to the stable training routine and over the last few days he's had a good look around trotting and cantering along all the different grass and poly tracks and swimming in the equine pool as Ciaron builds further on his early racehorse education, fitness and strength."

"Our colt is out of a High Chaparral mare, he’s a lovely mover, great physical type and great value” said trainer Ciaron Maher.

“In 12 months time – you’ll see why we simply love this breed” said FLR's Tim Wilson

This colt is $8,550 for a 5% share inclusive of purchase price, purchase costs, international freight & importation costs, transport and agistment etc plus insurance coverage and all costs inclusive to 31 August 2017.
