Lease shares are available in this 3yo son of star stallion, Shamus Award.

Top 5 Australian Stallion by Group One Winners per runners … 6.75% SW/R's

Currently in work with Group 1 Winning trainer Mitch Freedman.
He is ticking all the boxes and progressing nicely in this prep, having strengthened from his last preparation where he was close to the jumpout stage as a 2-year-old.
Shamus Awards get better with age and we did not want to rush him, so happy to take our time with him.

Mitch has commented that he is a good cut of a horse, has a good brain on him, a great attitude towards his work, and has a nice action.
And has noted that he works on the flat track, the hill track, and handles it nicely. He will start evens at the end of this week and progress to pace work 10-14 days thereafter.

He is a lovely shape, who looks like he will grow into a classic stayer.

As a yearling, the breaker gave glowing reports all the way through and thinks he is a ripper!

Being a lease, there are no upfront costs to get involved, just the ongoing training fees!
Approx costs per month based on a 5% Share - $275 when in FULL work.
Significantly less when spelling.

ONLY 7.5% Left !!

A golden opportunity to get involved !! Lease availability will NOT last long.

More videos and trainers reports upon request.
Email enquiry is preferred as I am currently overseas.
I will put you in touch with Mitch's racing manager to proceed as shares are limited.
