“He’s from a great farm at Curraghmore Stud, where in recent times we’ve bought and trained the 1000 Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m) winner Kahma Lass, stakes winner In A Twinkling, and Heroic Valour, a Group One winner and now stallion in Australia, with progeny selling to $350,000,” said David Ellis.

“He’s a beautiful colt by an outstanding sire, from a good Cambridge Stud family, and a alert colt with great balance.”

The colt carries a cross of Champion Two-Year-Old in Britain and Ireland, Try My Best (Northern Dancer), on the sire line of Written Tycoon and dam line of Hectopascal.
