Ellerton Zahra Racing may have stolen this colt from the New Zealand Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka!
This cracking mover is a son of first-season stallion MONGOLIAN KHAN, a son of HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR that dominated the three-year-old staying ranks of his year in both Australia and New Zealand.
MONGOLIAN KHAN won both the New Zealand and Australian Derbys as well as the Group 2 Avondale and Waikato Guineas as a three-year-old before returning at four to win the Group 1 Caulfield Cup.
MONGOLIAN KHAN stands at Windsor Park Stud in New Zealand where he’ll be an undoubted success, making Ellerton Zahra’s purchase of this colt all the more inspired.
This colt is out of the six-time winner AKELA, who was also Group 3-placed over 1600m, while she was sharp enough to win over 1200m on multiple occasions.
Akela produced the classy mare LADY KIPLING, a winner at Group 2 level over 1400m while she was placed at Group 1 level over a mile. Akela’s seven runners have all been winners, including the stakes-placed Lady Chapel.
