RTD have just secured Lot 290 a magnificent Time for War Colt by Shadow Grande. The team consisting of bloodstock expert John Foote and master trainer Darren Weir have worked tirelessly at Magic Millions over the last week. With a focus on value and quality RTD has had the luxury of having John inspect every horse in the sale and as a result we have found a cracking colt with an amazing conformation and a lovely pedigree.

Time for War, the Stallion by the Super Sire Snitzel out of arguably the best broodmare sire ever in Zabeel, Lady Zabelia was a typical colt that we are used to seeing in Australia. Speed mixed with a staying pedigree this colt got up early and boy could he run. Both Time for War and his father Snitzel’s career kicked off in similar fashion with both winning their 1st races before Christmas indicating that his progeny will get up and going early. Time for War won 3 times as a 2YO including the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes, 4th in the ATC Sire’s Produce two weeks later on a heavy 9 and then a further two weeks later beat Gr1 winner Brazen Beau in the Group 2 BRC Sire’s Produce. As a 3YO the horse trained on to 1400m where he was 2nd in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas.

Comments from Mick Malone of Kitchwin Hills and previous trainer in Gerald Ryan who trained Snitzel and so many of his progeny couldn’t believe how similar he is to the old man! "He was shaping as everything we had hoped for. Time For War was the closest resemblance to his father Snitzel as I have ever seen, and his foals now follow on, in type and attitude." Unfortunately we wont get to see his further deeds as he only served two seasons before a massive colic attack took his life in 2017.

Shadow Grande, the Dam is a three quarter sister to Hurtle Myrtle and a half sister to Whisper Bay the dam of Indian Thunder who Darren already trains and is a stakes winner.

This colt is a cracking type who looks identical to his Grand sire Snitzel. He is lovely mover and very correct bones structure with big over step and has a great attitude. John Foote loves him as picked him out personally and Darren can’t wait to train him, this colt will not last long.
