Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Nov 22nd, 2017

Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

Some great opportunities can emerge from anywhere with Ellerton Zahra Racing offering a chance to get involved in the ownership of this colt from one of New Zealand’s best families at an entry-level price.

This colt is a son of REDWOOD, an outstanding racetrack performer by HIGH CHAPARRAL, who was a Group 1 winner in Canada and competitive in top races all around the world, running second in Group 1 races in Hong Kong and Dubai.

REDWOOD has done a solid job at stud in New Zealand producing the promising Group 3 winner NIGHT’S WATCH as well as the New Zealand Derby runner-up RISING RED and stakes ROMANCER from limited opportunities.

The female line of this colt’s pedigree is simply unbelievable with his dam SURPRIZE SURPRIZE a Group 1 winner in NZ while she has produced three winners of her own with her progeny showing they’re tremendously adaptable, winning races in NZ, Hong Kong and NSW.

SURPRIZE SURPRIZE’S sister UPRIZE was Group 2-placed while the colt hails from the same family as the brilliant New Zealand Derby winner ZONDA and the Group 2 winner and Melbourne Cup placegetter MAGNOLIA HALL.

This colt has that mix of staying power and a miler’s speed in his pedigree so don't miss the opportunity to be involved in this super young athlete.
