Air Command


 

Air Command

Sire: Air Force Blue (USA)

Dam: Sassy Sister

Colour: Brown

Gender: Gelding

Age: 3 yo

Foaled: Nov 11, 2018

Country: AUS


Horse Description:

A fantastic effort second up at Kembla Grange over 1000m where he was narrowly beaten a short head into third on the 22/7/21. He willl take great benefit and experience from this and will continue to improve!!



He is by Air Force Blue, who, from his first crop of 2 YO's in Europe has already had 4 stakes performers and is already proving to be a top class sire. We have three 2YO's by him and our riders and jockeys have been extremely impressed. Air Command is no different!



A certainty to improve with time, Air Command is a very exciting prospect for our stable and limited opportunities are available to get involved!


 

Price: $220,000
