"this colt was a brilliant two-year-old. He had six starts and won five including two Group 1s...A big, strong, tall horse. He's from an incredible speed family. I'd be looking to send him strong, short-coupled colonial fast mares - the typical Australian type should suit him." breeder, Peter O'Brien
