His sire a Cox Plate winner & dam an Oaks winner - introducing our new Easter yearling

Apr 08, 2016

We sent Mat to the Easter Sales with clear instructions - find another Heatherly. Hopefully part of those instructions have been followed and he's just purchased a future group winning colt, but this son of OCEAN PARK won't be a short course specialist and has been purchased for clients who are interested in racing a staying prospect. The instructions could have simply been - find us a Derby colt.

We are delighted to offer this truly outstanding colt whose sire and dam are both GROUP 1 winners. The New Zealand-bred colt is by the Cox Plate-winning superstar OCEAN PARK out of the New Zealand Oaks winner BOUNDLESS, a daughter of VAN NISTLEROOY.

Ocean Park was the Champion Middle Distance Horse in Australia and New Zealand in 2012/13 and the NZ Horse of the Year in that season with his five Group 1 wins, which included a streak of four Group 1 victories in the spring of 2012.

Boundless won from 1200m to 2400m in her nine wins while she is from the same family as LIMITLESS, who won from 1200m to 3200m, including the Group 1 Brisbane Cup. The colt is from the same family as another New Zealand star VEYRON, a 15-time winner that notched five Group 1 victories in a brilliant career.

Versatility and quality runs through this colt’s pedigree and his physical make-up shows this colt will be no exception. New Zealand strength and presence ooze from this yearling and Ellerton Zahra Racing have secured him at a terrific price of $150,000.

He's arrived safely at our Flemington stable and we can parade him for anyone interested between 8:30-9:30am on Saturday morning and we'll have the BBQ cranking. Please RSVP if you would like to attend and contact the stable if you have any questions or require further information. Click for full pedigree
