Import Racing secured Lot 417 from the NZB Ready To Run Sale, a real powerhouse of a horse! The colt is by one of the most sort after stallions in recent times, TAVISTOCK, multiple Group 1 winner and sire of 4 Group 1 winners including Victoria Derby winner TARZINO, trained by Mick Price himself.

Below are a couple of links to view footage of him parading and of his slick breeze up in 10.85s (200m) on a soft 5.

https://vimeo.com/302407831/57fced33db - Mick Price’s comments

As you will see, this is one serious horse! He is a real powerhouse of a horse. Big and strong, yet so fluent and graceful in his action. He breezed up ever so comfortably over 200m in the slick time of 10.85 on a soft 5 track. For a horse bred to stay all day, that added speed will be lethal!

Mick Price’s comments after the purchase “Excellent buy, an exceptional type! His breeze up was very good. He has an economical action and he ran good time.”

He is as close to perfect in conformation as you will find in a horse, straight through the hocks, almost perfect knees and pasterns. His x-rays are crystal clear, not a blemish anywhere. And the cherry on top…. he is a half-brother to Group 1 Derby winner HABIBI! They simply don’t come much better than this, and definitely not for the price we paid!

In my honest opinion, he should have comfortably made $200,000+ at least! We bought him very late on day 2 and was extremely lucky that many buyers had already left by that stage. I’m sure you can tell I’m very excited but I’m sure you will see why. I think you will agree this colt is simply outstanding!

Share price only $4,625 for 2.5% or $9,250 for 5%

Share price includes, Purchase Price plus GST, All sales related expenses (vets etc.), Agistment & Pre-Training (up to 31/01/19, Horse Flight and Importation Expenses, 12 months insurance etc.
