  • Lot 53ColtZOUSTAR X ARMANJENA

    “Our flashy Zoustar colt out of Armanjena (Lot 53) is very typical of his sire, with the same head and ears of Zoustar. He is well put together and has plenty of presence about him, being almost flaxen with three white socks. He thrives on his work, great to deal with and he has flourished during his preparation. His half-brother Aurman Zou, who is with Chris Waller is looking for a nice race to win. The mare has produced five to run, for four winners, so you can race this colt with confidence.” In order to select horses that are the best representation of our brand, we work closely with our Bloodstock Advisor, Mat Becker of Group 1 Bloodstock.

  • Lot 244COLTDEEP FIELD X KHAMSA

    “The Deep Field x Khamsa (Lot 244) is a very forward, early horse. Strong and fast, being out of a winning Stratum mare, he looks like he will jump out of the ground at two and go like the clappers.  He is a tough bugger too, you can throw the work at him and he takes it happily.”
