A flashy yet super athletic young colt. He has a walk to die for and physique that screams 3yo Classics. This colt was a steal from the 2020 Karaka Sale and we cannot wait to see him stretch that stride out at Flemington!


** A colt that catches your eye straight away! Not just because of his spectacular markings, but the way he moves! A massive overstep and brilliant fluency all over… he’s a good-sized November foal with loads of great scope. He will grow into a lovely Spring 3yo #athlete

** From the excellent, underrated sire ZACINTO (GB) – sire of Stakes Winners UGO FOSCOLO (NZ Gr1 Thousand. Guineas), SECRET ALLURE (4x Stakes Winner), VASSILATOR (2yo Anzac Day Stakes Winner, Runner-up Group 1 Caulfield Guineas), ZIGWIG (2yo Stakes Winner) and of course stars of the Ellerton Zahra stable ODEON (2x Aus Stakes Winner) and BRILLIANT VENTURE (Group 3 placed)

** A true kiwi… he descends from a beautiful family that is rich in some of the best NZ blood

** Dam Quest was a 5-time winner up to 2200m and this is only her second foal with her first foal now a 3yo who has placed from only 4 starts since the catalogue went to print.

** Quest herself is by a former NZ Champion sire and Broodmare Sire Volksraad (Zacinto/Volksraad cross 62% winners:runners and BM sire of stars Able Friend, Lights Of Heaven, Hellbent and Beauty Flash), and being out of 2-time Stakes Winning mare LIMERICK (by another Champion NZ Broodmare Sire Grosvenor), she hails from a wonderful family which includes CAPELLA, WISECRACK, BUTCH JAMES, READY TO EXPLODE and the blood of further legendary NZ sires TIGHTSand SIR TRISTRAM.

ONLY $3,815 per 5% share including all purchase and sales costs, airfreight, post-sale NZ agistment, NZ stud book clearance free, 12 months insurance, GST etc.
