Horse Description:

By proven sire of Stakes Winners HINCHINBROOK out of a Zabeel mare that is closely related to boom 3YO FLIT. Dufresne has a massive pedigree with no fewer than 5 stakes performers in his immediate family including his dam, STEFLARA winner of the GR 3 AJC Breeders Classic, PLEIADAS, 2nd in the GR 3 Belle Of The Turf & GROUP 1 MRC Thousand Guineas winner FLIT.

The cross between Fastnet Rock and Zabeel has proven to be very successful with horses such as 4 time GROUP 1 winner ATLANTIC JEWEL, AVANTAGE & PLANET ROCK.

Dufresne is now a gelding with a lot of quality and is a great mover. This guy ticks all the right boxes with a magnificent pedigree and looks to match!

His debut run was extremely impressive where he was second, beaten just over a length on the Kensington track, with a lot of improvement to come.
