By: Nick Melmeth
For:John Sarget Racing

SWEET SHAMROCK is a lovely big three-year-old gelding with good conformation and plenty of scope. He is well balanced individual and would be a fantastic addition to any stable.

Purchased through the 2014 New Zealand Ready to Run sale, he breezed up in a stylish time of 11.25sec on a Dead 5 rated track. Subsequently a Warwick Farm trial winner on the synthetic surface and with only 3 career starts to date, the gelding on offer poses plenty of future racing potential.

Being by the former NZ Champion sire in O’Reilly, he represents a lot of promise and has every chance of adding to his sire’s already incredible credentials as a producer of winners. With horses such as SILENT ACHIEVER, SHAMROCKER, ALAMOSA and SACRED FALLS on his roster there is little wonder as to why O’REILLY claimed the title of Champion New Zealand Sire 4 times.

Being out of the winning Encosta De Lago mare SWEET LADY, makes SWEET SHAMROCK a full-brother to SWIFT LADY, a metropolitan winner of 3 races and prize money earner of more than $78,000. The grand dam is Group 3 winning mare SWIFT SYND (dam of LE ZAGALETTA) and half-sister to SPOT THE ROCK and CANDY ROCK.

A Cracking type and with a pedigree to match, proven ability and plenty of racing upside makes this a wonderful opportunity to get a ready-made racing proposition in your colours.
