The colt will be trained in Melbourne by one of Victoria’s leading trainers Mick Price, now in a training partnership with young gun Michael Kent Jnr. Both Mick and Michael were at the Karaka sale and inspected the colt (amongst many others), and they were both very impressed with his physique, conformation, action and temperament. Mick and Michael are strict judges when it comes to selecting horses and very few make their shortlist, so you know this colt is a top specimen when they give him the tick of approval.


TARZINO (Tavistock x Zarzino, by Zabeel – 2012) | Bay Horse | 16.2 hh (168cm)

* Champion 3YO Colt in Australia 2015-16 ahead of Press Statement, Japonisme, Holler and Tavago.

* Second in the VRC Australian Guineas Gr.1 over 1600m.

* An exceptional turn of foot.

* The only Group 1 winning entire by Champion Sire Tavistock at stud, and bred on the same cross as Werther, Hasselhoof, Pacorus and Gobstopper.

MISS JUVENTUS by Anabaa. Winner over 2100m. She is a half-sister to the G1p Show of Force, dam of G1 winner ATOMIC FORCE. She has produced 3 foals to race for 2 dual winners and a placegetter.


I inspected a lot of Tarzino's progeny this year and I am really liking what he is producing. I love this colt, he just looks tough! He's big & strong, good boned, very athletic and he has a great big hind quarter on him.

He moves very well and with a lot of purpose which I love to see. I look for pedigree, type, conformation, action, temperament and of course a sound and low risk horse, and this colt ticks every box.

He will be given every chance by Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr to be a successful racehorse, with the rich Derby's and Cups our main aspirations for him.

Mick Price in fact trained Tarzino to win the G1 Victoria Derby and the G1 Rosehill Guineas. He knows the breed very well and believes this colt is exactly what you want to see when looking at a Tarzino.

The colt has already been flown out to Australia and is has completed his breaking in process with astute breaker Gordan Pratt.

He received the highest of praise from Gordan whose final report was "Import Racing has sure picked another star. I have very much enjoyed breaking this horse in and every thing this horse has to offer. This early as yearlings, they rarely feel as fluent and clean in their action as he does. I love his attitude, he enjoys his work and is very trainable. He feels a very promising horse for the future. I can’t wait to see him return to our stable."
