Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Sep 10th, 2016

Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

Sons of HIGH CHAPARRAL are doing an outstanding job at stud and Ellerton Zahra Racing has secured an exciting offering by the former star performer (IT’S A) DUNDEEL.

DUNDEEL was simply amazing as a three-year-old, winning the Group 1 quartet of the Spring Champion Stakes, Randwick Guineas, Rosehill Guineas and Australian Derby in a super season. The brilliant performances didn’t stop at four with wins in the Underwood Stakes and Queen Elizabeth Stakes to cap a wonderful career that featured six Group 1 wins.

DUNDEEL had enough class to become the only horse to beat the brilliant mare ATLANTIC JEWEL when he saluted in the Underwood Stakes.

DUNDEEL has started his stud career in strong fashion with a New Zealand 1200m winner Cutadeel and the recent 2yr old stakes winner IRUKANDJI.

This lovely colt is out of Purple Vein, a daughter of the wonderful racehorse and marvellous sire FASTNET ROCK. FASTNET ROCK’s daughters have produced Group 1 winner SANTA ANA LANE and TIVACI as well as the classy mare OMEI SWORD.

Purple Vein has had one foal to race with her son Lucky Jackson a winner over 1400m in Queensland in the spring. This colt’s third dam is the former Australian Champion 2YO Filly VICTORY VEIN, the winner of 12 races and two at Group 1 level.
