Extremely athletic colt, very hard to fault. He has very good length, big hind quarters furthermore matched by great shoulders. This colt also boasts a strong neck and a big deep girth.
Built for serious speed, very sharp looking colt and should get up and run early. A very precocious type likewise a good attitude.
He will not take long to come to hand and is littered with 2yo winners throughout his pedigree page. Even more his sire EUROZONE winning 2 at 2, The Dam SHEROCKSMYWORLD winning 2 at 2 and the Grandam SOLVINI winning a Group 3 at 2.
Bjorn Baker’s thoughts when inspecting this colt, “He looks to be a strong early running type and by all accounts he has a really good attitude which makes my job a lot easier. Eurozone won a couple at 2yo and there is plenty of 2yo winners in the pedigree. The horse is out of a good Fastnet Rock mare, she won in the city in Sydney. His got a good pedigree and is a BOBS horse so we can win a lot of money from him. Off course he is entered into my favourite race the Magic Millions where we will be running for super money. I think he his great value and can’t wait to get him in the stables”.
This colt has completed his breaking in at Evergreen Stud.
Gordon Pratt reported, “He is a strong forward type of horse. A laid back individual, he progressed quickly thru the breaking in process. Anything new it was like he did it a million times before. A trainable colt, he is physically strong and therefore shows lots of signs of being an early runner. He is mature and I really enjoyed breaking him in. He raised eyebrows around around the stables”.
