Delighted to introduce this strong and super athletic Vobis colt by Starcraft to our Class of 2020 with trainer Michelle Payne.

Out of the 3-time winning Anabaa mare Lykanna, a producer of 3 to race, ALL WINNERS and this colt carries the very highly rated Starcraft / Anabaa cross like Stakes Winners PROPERTY and HAVANA.

What else do we love about him...

** Physically – This very well-balanced colt oozes athleticism! He’s big, he’s strong and he’s so light on his feet with a very fluent action, big roomy girth and loads of great scope!

** BONUS – He’s already broken in and impressed yearling breaker Blair Richardson with his athletic action and professionalism - “A nice sized colt with a good athletic canter, really easy to break in”

** EXTRA BONUS – He’s SUPER VOBIS nominated, VOBIS GOLD eligible and eligible for the VOBIS SIRES SHOWDOWN SERIES!

**Sire – 5-time International Group 1 winner Starcraft is a bread & butter stalwart in the Victorian Sires Rank with a high 60.1% winners:runners strike rate! Sire of Group 1 winning sprinter and now stallion at stud STAR WITNESS, Blue Diamond Preview winner PROPERTY plus further Stakes Winners CONTE, BLIZZARD and recent Cranbourne Cup runner up NAVAISHA.

** Pedigree – Out of the 3-time City winner Lykanna (by Anabaa) who has produced 3 foals to race for 3 WINNERS and being by Anabaa, this colt carries the same highly rated cross as two of Starcraft’s best performers in PROPERTY and HAVANA.

** Furthermore, Lykanna descends from a great speed family being the daughter of 2-time 2yo winner and Stakes placed daughter of Snippets in COMMON SMYTZER making her the half-sister to Group 3 winner EXCEEDINGLY GOOD and multiple Stakes Winner COMMON INTEREST (BETTER BE THE ONE – Singapore).

An excellent value colt who is our last and only available Class of 2020 yearling to join our boutique stable with trainer Michelle Payne and he'll join the FLR/Michelle Payne winning stable mates FLAG EDITION, OPTIMIZZER, SO ASTOUNIDNG and PRINCE OF CELEBES.

5% share price ONLY $4,390 which is inclusive of all purchase costs, bloodstock expenses, insurance to 30 April 2021 and GST
