Sonny is a 4yo Gelding out of a Fasternet Rock mare Fasuka, winner of 2 races, from the family of CHAPADA, DIAMOND MIX and BAUER to name just a few.

Sonny is a tough little character, what he lacks in size, he makes up for in heart. Good nature, good to do anything with.

He has had limited racing career around the country and provincial circuit, he has been unlucky on a couple of occasions not to win. He has the ability at this level to perform in the future.

Height: 15.25 HH

He's currently agisted at Zhongli Thoroughbreds in Burradoo.
Pre-sale inspections are welcome by appointment.
