Rubick X Mane Chance

Sire: Rubick

Dam: Mane Chance

Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 3 year old

Foaled: Aug 19th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

High speed with a dash of staying blood is a huge feature of this impressive ownership opportunity offered by Ellerton Zahra Racing by the brilliant sprinter RUBICK.

A son of ENCOSTA DE LAGO, Rubick was one the fastest horses to grace an Australian racetrack in recent years, winning the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes over the Caulfield 1000m course as well as the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude in his short career.

Rubick’s speed was no surprise as a close relation to REDOUTE’S CHOICE and MANHATTAN RAIN while his dam SLIDING CUBE was a Group 3 winner over 1000m.

Rubick’s stock has been enormously popular with buyers, bringing up to $470,000 at 2018 yearling sales and Ellerton Zahra Racing has secured this colt out of the RESET mare Mane Chance. Mane Chance was placed during her racing days.

Reset mares have produced the likes of the pacy stakes winners HOUTZEN and MADEENATY and this colt is set to show his own fair share of speed when he hits the track. This powerful colt lives up to his pedigree and looks a real running type that could show up as a two-year-old.
