The Prince of Speed. By the Stallion that Defined ‘It’.

THE CONFORMATION

  • “As good looking a colt as I’ve taken to a sale.” John Slade, Maine Chance Farm.

THE CLASS

  • Winner of nine races from 1200 to 1600 metres, and more than R15million. Four Group victories, two Group Ones, and thirteen Group performances.
  • “My one regret is I didn’t have him at Royal Ascot to take on Black Caviar.” Champion Trainer Pat Shaw.

THE CRITICAL FACTOR

  • From the sireline that produced Bel Esprit, (Australia's leading sire of winners in 2013), and Val Royal, sires respectively of World Champion sprinter, Black Caviar and current Argentinian star, Taifas.
  • Like Bel Esprit, Val Royal, Zalaiyka, Oscar Schindler, Sleepytime, Ali Royal, Bullish Luck, Eyeofthetiger, Express Way and Centaine, a son of World Champion racehorse Royal Academy, sire of 170 Stakes winners, including 27 at Group One level.
  • From a six-time Group-winning dam of 100% winners.
