Horse Description:

It was no wonder this colt was a sale topper.

He ticks every box. He’s a cracking type by a promising young sire and the dam’s side of the pedigree is packed with winners, making him a brilliant ownership opportunity.

The colt is by EPAULETTE a brilliant son of COMMANDS that won the stallion-making Group 1 Golden Rose as a spring three-year-old before beating the older horses at weight-for-age in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000. Like his three-quarter brother HELMET, EPAULETTE was a Group 1 winner packed with speed and class.

Epaulette has made a terrific start to his stud career with a two-year-old Group 3 winner MERYL in his first racing crop while the stakes-placed Khulaasa and River Bird have been competitive with the better two-year-olds.

This colt hails from a superb Tasmanian family being out of the stakes-placed mare With Decorum, a winner of 11 races in both Melbourne and Tasmania that was placed at Listed level in her terrific racing career. Her three runners are all winners in Tasmania at distances between 900m and 1600m.

The colt’s second dam Royal Egypt won 12 races and third dam was an 11-time winner and he’s closely related to Royal Rapture, who has won 15 races. This family produces prolific winners!
