Sire: Lonhro

Dam: Riptide

Colour: Bay or Brown

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Oct 20th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra offered an outstanding lead to prospective owners when they purchased this powerful colt by champion sire LONHRO.

This superb ownership opportunity hails from a family that trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra know extremely well, giving them a head-start on their competition at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

Ellerton and Zahra have trained five of the colt’s family, including the Oakleigh Plate winner RIVER DOVE, CROSS CURRENT, River Woman, River Serenade and this quality yearling’s half-sister River Goddess, a three-time winner for the stable in the current racing season.

This colt is also a half-brother to the two-year-old city winner Mulk out of Riptide, who has had three winners from as many foals to race.

Ellerton and Zahra have also had tremendous success with the progeny of LONHRO, preparing the brilliant filly HEATHERLY, a Group 2 winner that was less than a length from a Group 1 win for the stable.

LONHRO was an awesome racehorse himself with 26 career wins, including 11 at Group 1 level before injecting his class into progeny such as PIERRO, BEADED, BOUNDING, DENMAN, EXOSPHERE and IMPENDING among 72 stakes winners.
