Colour: Bay

Dam: Kee de Vega

Sex: Colt

Age: 2

Foaled: Oct 22, 2019

Country: Australia


Mitch Freedman Racing has acquired lot 70 at the Inglis Classic Sale.

HEADWATER had early career speed, winning the Gr. 2 Silver Slipper as a 2yo and has passed this trait onto his progeny with many forward types heading through the sales ring over the last two seasons. He is already the sire of Gr. 3 winner WISDOM OF WATER and multiple stakes placegetters including the exciting prospect JAMAEA who ran second in the listed Lonhro Plate on Saturday the 6th of February.

This colt is the third foal for the dam KEE DE VEGA (LOPE DE VEGA (IRE) sire of SANTA ANA LANE and GYTRASH ) and is a full brother to TRONIC MIGHTY, who had been exported to Hong Kong and is in training with David Hayes.

He looks to be an early running type, so if you don’t want to wait long before heading to the races secure your share in this precocious colt today!

Price at hammer fall $70,000 + GST
