Introducing the kind of horse that you just know you will regret it immensely if you don't go that extra bid! He's the son of Champion 2yo VANCOUVER and Stakes Placed daughter of Pins in KUKLA and was an absolute knock out on type at the Inglis Easter sale for #TeamFIRST and trainers Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young. We just had to have him!



** It’s not often we hear the famous words of FLR’s Bloodstock guru Paul Willetts “JUST BUY IT” but when we do, we get serious! This colt is a knock out physical type that was never not coming home with us.

** They don’t move any better than this guy. An action to die for! He propels himself forward with such fluency and an enormous over-step. Signs of an athlete.

** A great size with a lovely athletic frame that he will blossom into, strong hip and big girth. All the things we love to see!

** By a young sire who is making his presence felt! A freak 2yo on the track, he’s producing top class racehorse with loads of scope that are excelling into their 3yo year

** From a young mare that had talent on the track and from a family deep in black type performers, he also carries the best cross yet for his sire VANCOUVER being out of a Pins mare, the same as VANGELIC & NIGHT RAID


Sire – VANCOUVER (by Medaglia D’Oro)

** Unbeaten Golden Slipper winning Champion 2yo, VANCOUVER was the highest-rated 2yo of his generation and he’s starting to make his presence felt at stud

** Sire of recent Group 2 Tulloch Stakes winner YALETOWN, 2 x Stakes Winner NIGHT RAID, 2yo debut winner plus 2 x Group 1 placed 3yo filly VANGELIC, 2yo winner and runner-up in the Group 3 Breeders Plate on debut POSTCODE and place-getter in 2yo Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes TICKET TO RIDE

** And he’s had a fantastic start to 2021 with not only 3yo colt YALETOWN, but he also sired 2 x Metropolitan class debut winners with 3yo filly MISS TAINUI at Bendigo and 2yo colt ASLAV at Hawkesbury within a month!

Dam – KUKLA (by Pins)

** Well related New Zealand bred Pins mare KUKLA was Stakes Placed at just her 6th start in the Listed Twilight Glow stakes and was a winner at metropolitan level.

** She is the daughter of very talented 2 x Group 1 placed NAHAYAN making her the half-sister to 2 x winner and Stakes Placed 2yo UPPER ECHELON as well as 2 x Stake Placed GOVERNANCE

** Her full brother also won over three hundred thousand in Hong Kong and her other full brother won four times

** Further along, it’s the family of Group 1 winners FIELD DANCER & JUST A DANCER
PLUS... with Kukla being by the brilliant broodmare sire Pins, our Vancouver colt carries the same cross as two of his best progeny in 2 x Stakes Winner NIGHT RAID and 2 x Group 1 placed VANGELIC!

** Two runners for Two winners and both Stakes Performers on that cross!
