By: Royal Bloodstock

This impressive 2yo BOY has only had the one start.

He was sent to MORPHETTVILLE in a SATURDAY METROPOLITAN BM64 RACE over 1300ms in his first ever race and the stable was CONFIDENT with his ability going into the race.

He has always shown PLENTY in his work and has laways looked to have the makings of a very handy racehorse.

He is a really big boy, standing at 17hh with a strong and powerful build.

He looks like a MIDDLE DISTANCE / STAYING type.

In his first run he played up going into the barriers and went through the front of the gates and proved difficult to load.

Perhaps being such a big boy could be the reason that he is not a fan of the Barriers which has proved his undoing thus far.. He needs for someone to put the time in to make sure he is more comfortable in the Barriers.

If this boy can get over his barrier manners and lives up to what he has shown he could really be anything.

With his LOOKS, TYPE and IMPECCABLE MANNERS, this boy will make an exceptional Equestrian horse after he finishes racing.


COPADREAM (J. Cartwright) – underwent a pre-race veterinary examination after contacting its
barrier stall after being loaded and was passed fit to race. Proved difficult to load thereafter. A postrace
veterinary examination revealed no visible abnormalities. Trainer was advised the gelding would
be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an Official Barrier Trial prior to accepting
for a future race.
