Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

I attended the New Zealand Bloodstock sales last week and was able to purchase Lot 747. He is a Rip Van Winkle (Galileo) out of the city winning 2YO mare Hukba (Shamardal).

The colt was an athletic type, he had a good amount of strength and bone which would suggest that he may be able to race early enough despite being by a son of Galilieo. He hails from a 2YO winning familly with his mother, 2nd dam and 3rd dam being winners at 2. Rip Van Winkle himself has sired a Group 1 winner at 2 in the Northern Hemisphere. Lot 747 had an intelligent head and possesed great presence which seen him make my final list after having inspected well over 500 horses in the sale.

I had the horses' X-rays viewed on film by Dr. Brian Anderson from the Ballarat Vet Practice who assesed them as Low - Moderate risk for racing, coupled with sound conformation the horse has a good chance of having a solid racing career.

Please see Below for a video of the horse at Hanui Farm who sold the horse and did his pre-sale preperation.
