Horse Description:


this colt was born and raised at iconic thoroughbred nursery Arrowfield Stud. He is bred and built to be the perfect Classic and Derby contender and is expected to follow in the footsteps of this exciting threeyear- old.

Acclaimed as the Classic and weight-for-age star of his generation, this colt's sire Dundeel is now forging an equally spectacular career at stud. From just three racing crops, he has already sired four individual Group One winners, including; record-breaking G1 ATC Champagne Stakes winner

Castelvecchio, G1 Caulfield Guineas winner Super Seth, two-time Group One-winning two-year-old Yourdeel and G1 Kenilworth Cape Derby winner


Three-year-old colts Castelvecchio and Super Seth have also been secured by world-class studs Arrowfield Stud and Waikato Stud (respectively) and will no doubt go on to forge successful careers as sires.

This eye-catching colt is out of the Flying Spur mare Laissez Faire. She has had two to the races for two winners, and her third foal is a two-year-old by Real Impact that trainer Joe Pride has a high opinion of.
