Chittering 6084 WA, Australia

Cracking Yearling, lovely type, bred in NZ and extremely well handled from Day 1. I bred her in NZ on our stud farm and shipped her over when i moved to WA as she was such a nice type, she has a lovely action in the paddock and loves to run and play.

She is certain to make a 2yo she is big and strong and developing nicely with good confirmation, she has been well handled, i have done a lot of prep with her, shes been in the tie ups, stabled, bathed/hosed down, covered etc so will be a breeze to break in all the hard work is done.

Her Dam is over 16.2hh and she is certainly looking to make a good height to. Shes well traveled and takes it all in her stride she has all the right attributes to make a racehorse. She is currently out spelling in Chittering.

She is only for sale as i have had a change in circumstances and have decided to return back to NZ i am looking for a quick sale and she is priced to sell.
