STRONG, MOVES WELL AND WELL BALANCED, HAS ALL THE RIGHT ATTRIBUTES TO RUN EARLY AT 2YO. COMPLETED HIS EDUCATION AND WAS IMPRESSIVE.
This colt is a really neat package, correct, he moves well, strong, got all the right angles and is a nice horse. This was one of Michael Costa’s top picks at the Inglis Classic Sale. Michael is very excited to be training this colt by Eurozone.
Michael Costa’s commented, “This Eurozone Colt it was actually on my list of the top 3 colts at the sale. I went to the classic sale to really look for 2yo’s this colt had all the right attributes. He has speed on both sides of the pedigree but more than what I look for is more on type, he has short cannon bones , lovely walker. I would say he is nearly 100% correct and that is very rare in a horse. He ticks all the boxes, he has a beautiful length of hip. When he walks he is 100% balanced and gives every indication and every opportunity that he will run early”.
Gordan Pratt the breaker reported, “Really like this horse, strong, moves well, well balanced, easy to work with. I really like him a lot. He’s sharp forward type of a horse. I think he will make a nice 2yo. A forward thinking type of a horse just wanted to get out there and get the job done. One of my top picks out of all the horses I have completed breaking in, has ability”
This great moving colt has finished his education, showed lots of ability and is a Precocious forward type he will be set for the 2yo classic races.
Cavallo Park Stud Foreman Cate reported, “He is spelling very well and has put on plenty of condition. He still hasn’t gone through his growth spurt and is still quite high up in his hind quarter but he will catch up in front soon enough. He is a strong and compact horse and soon enough he will shoot up in his wither and will really start to look the part”.
He will commence pre-training early June, 2017 before heading to Michael Costa’s stable to start his first preparation.
This colt has been vet checked and x-rayed.
