In summary we believe he will be a colt here that will work through the grades and with the NSW staying ranks being weaker than Melbourne we think he will be well placed with Kris Lees who has had a lot of success with similar horses and is currently enjoying an amazing season currently 5th in the Australian Trainers premiership ahead of the likes of Waterhouse, Snowden, Mick Price , Tony Gollan, Bjorn Baker and John Hawkes.
Kris has the beach – the Newcastle stables and also the farm to train them from – so the horse will have plenty of things to keep him interested and stimulated and who knows in a few years once mature the way his current trainer in Germany is talking he would be a definite cups horse

This horse has only had the 3 starts and already is Group 2 performed and 5% shares are available along with a PDS that has been approved by Racing NSW

However the real benefit with a horse like this is the Handicapper cant “ get at him” and he should provide plenty of fun as we work through the Sydney Grades and given they are $53k to the winner races I think he should easily recoup his purchase price and is sensational value for his ability
