Charge Forward X Ebony Wand

Sire: Charge Forward

Dam: Ebony Wand

Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Aug 24th, 2015

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Some crosses just work perfectly and this exceptional colt is bred along a proven cross to bring racetrack success.

He is by CHARGE FORWARD, who needs no introduction to Ellerton Zahra Racing followers as the sire of the stable’s dual Group 1 winner RESPONSE while the team has got the best out of city performers Menage A Charge, Face Forward and Red Rain.

The colt is bred on the same CHARGE FORWARD / FLYING SPUR cross as Group 1 winner HEADWAY, Group 2 winner SPEAK FONDLY and stakes winners CRACK A ROADIE, FORT LINCOLN, ROAD TRIPPIN’ , SAUL’S SPECIAL and URBAN GROOVE.

This colt is the first foal out of Ebony Wand, an unraced three-quarter sister to the Group 3 winner SHE’S CLEAN and a half-sister to city winners Cleanup and Windswept while his grand-dam FEATHER DUSTER is a stakes-placed half-sister to the outstanding KINSHASA NO KISEKI, a dual Group 1 winner in Japan over 1200m.

This colt’s pedigree works and Ellerton Zahra Racing has secured an extraordinary ownership opportunity at an unbelievable price.
