Kuroshio X Docherty Woods

1 year old Bay Colt

Sire: Kuroshio Dam: Docherty Woods

Ellerton Zahra Racing bought a filly by the speed sire KUROSHIO last year and liked her so much, they moved quickly to secure a colt by the stallion at the Sydney Classic Yearling Sale.

That filly will appear this season and this colt should be a candidate for an early debut if he follows in the footsteps of his sire. KUROSHIO was an early two-year-old runner, winning a Group 3 and Listed races as a two-year-old, showing the trademark pace of EXCEED AND EXCEL stock.

KUROSHIO returned at three to beat the older horses in the Group 2 Ian McEwen Stakes over 1000m before injury ended his short but brilliant racing career.

KUROSHIO’s oldest stock are two-year-olds but this colt’s dam Docherty Woods has already produced two NSW winners at distances from 900m to 1600m from three of her progeny to race.

Docherty Woods is daughter of the great US stallion TALE OF THE CAT, whose daughters have produced overseas stars DORTMUND and AMAZING MARIA while SNITTY KITTY and MONGOLIAN WOLF are among the top local gallopers out of daughters of TALE OF THE CAT.

This colt’s pedigree page features some outstanding names being closely related to the superstar GRAND ARMEE and Group 1 winners ANAMATO, DRUM and DEALER PRINCIPAL.
