A son of none other than Gai & Adrian's star 3yo WANDJINA, this athletic colt is a fantastic mover - needs to be seen to be believed - and reminds the team of his famous dad.

"A beautiful individual and one of the most athletic Wandjinas we’ve seen this year. This is a colt who I think can be up and racing early with scope to only improve into his 3yo year – gorgeous type!” Co-trainer Adrian Bott


* One of the most impressive movers we have seen at a yearling sale! Just watch his video and see for yourself!

** This colt has an incredible, fluent walk with a massive overstep and he’s got a beautiful frame to match with a very deep girth and strong hindquarter - signs of a runner!

* By Gai and Adrian’s Star 3yo WANDJINA, a son of the Champion sire SNITZEL and winner of the Group 1 Australian Guineas, he has hit the board in the Autumn of his first season with FOUR 2yo winners this Autumh in addition to his two Stakes Placed 2yo’s DEEP CHILL and GRAND SCHOLAR

* Out of the 4 x winning Flying Spur mare Helvetia, producer of only the two foals to race including this colts 3/4 brother and 6 x city winner Martinelli.

* Carries a very similar cross to Stakes Winning 2yo DUCIMUS plus 5 Stakes Performers plus 56% winners:runners

* Helvetia also descends from an excellent black type family including Group 1 Oaks winner SALEOUS and Group winning 2yo PASSMORE

* An impressive, supremely athletic individual who on type, reminds Champion trainers Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott of his Star sire at the same age
