Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing won the VRC Oaks this season but have the perfect Derby candidate in the form of this super athlete by dual hemisphere Group 1 winner RELIABLE MAN.

RELIABLE MAN claimed the Prix du Jockey Club at Group 1 level in France before having two Australian starts, defeating DUNDEEL, HAPPY TRAILS, SILENT ACHIEVER and SECRET ADMIRER in the Group I Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.

RELIABLE MAN has done a super job at stud, siring the New Zealand Oaks winner SENTIMENTAL MISS, Group 2 winner BELLE DU NORD as well as the Victoria Derby placegetter SULLY and the 2019 Queensland Derby favourite NOBU.

RELIABLE MAN is one of the best-performed sons of DALAKHANI while this colt is out of the unraced VISCOUNT mare Merayaat, who has already produced the 2800m stakes winner AVERAU and the stakes-placed Reigning among three winners.

He hails from the same family as Australian Derby and Spring Champion Stakes winner UNIVERSAL PRINCE and his Group 1-winning sister UNIVERSAL QUEEN as well as the smart filly KRONE, a stakes winner during the Sydney autumn carnival.

Daughters of the impeccably bred VISCOUNT have produced the Group 3 winners JORDA and MAGIC CHAI as well as the Group 1-placed PRINCESS POSH.

This well bred staying colt was purchased for $90,000 ex gst at the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale - Lot 2183
