Horse Description:

Class abounds on both sides of this superb athlete’s pedigree and Ellerton Zahra Racing was delighted to purchase this lovely colt by the leading New Zealand stallion TAVISTOCK.

Tavistock was a classy racehorse himself, winning twice at Group 1 level over 1400m as a son of the great European staying influence MONTJEU and that influence has immediately appeared in the stallion’s stock.

Tavistock defeated the multiple Group 1 winner MUFHASA in his two wins at the highest level while he was good enough to win at Group 2 level in Melbourne, displaying his class on both sides of the Tasman Sea.

Tavistock has quickly stamped himself as a top Australasian stallion, become the champion sire in Hong Kong in 2015/16 while the Montjeu blood has enabled him to become a staying influence through his Derby-winning sons TARZINO, TAVAGO and WERTHER while VOLKSTOK’N’BARRELL is a Group 1 winner in both Australia and New Zealand.

This colt’s dam Procure was a winner in Sydney during her short racing career, displaying the trademark speed of her sire CENTAINE, the super NZ-based stallion who is the damsire of 25 individual Group 1 winners, including JIMMY CHOX, ALAMOSA, GLAMOUR PUSS and AZKADELLIA.

Procure has produced six winners from nine to race including the Group 2-winning two-year-old HIPS DON’T LIE as well as the stakes-placed performers Acquired and Procurement while she has also produced the city winner Purchased.
