Horse Description:

This is a beautiful colt who has hit the ground running early as a 2YO. Out of stakes perfermed mare Apamea (Zafonic), she was 3rd in a listed race in France. She is the dam of GR 1 winner TAKEDOWN and this family is full of high class group horses. This colt looks to be no different.

He has come to the stables as a very professional individual and has impressed a lot in his work. He had a jump out on the 13.5.22 and it was extremely impressive. A link to his jumpout -

A colt who has shown serious ability in his gallops and jumpouts, he is in full work for his Spring Carnival campaign. He is a colt that we believe has a very exciting future ahead.
