This colt is out of the G3 MVRC Typhoon Tracy Stakes winner BRUGAL REWARD who had four career wins at 1000m and 1200m; which in turn compliments this colt’s superstar sprinting sire MERCHANT NAVY.
MERCHANT NAVY was an unbeaten 2yo and dual G1 winning 3yo, having won the G1 VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes and G1 Royal Ascot Diamond Jubilee Stakes before going to stud.
MERCHANT NAVY’s first season progeny have hit the track running as 2yo’s with 4 recent winners and a stakes place getter including DRISANA (who placed third in the G3 ATC Gimcrack Stakes), STANDING ORDER, GALAXY AFFAIR, IN THE NAVY and REBEL ROSAI.
This colt hails from the family of ‘Champion Sprinter in Australia’ APACHE CAT who won an incredible 19 races and over $4.6 million in prizemoney; taking out eight G1 races including the TJ Smith, VRC Australian Guineas, Lightning Stakes just to name a few.
This colt is a lovely and balanced individual with good bone, a strong shoulder and powerful hindquarter who moves with plenty of purpose. He most certainly fits the sprinter mould and we hope to see him get up and run!
Purchased as lot 401 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, for $190,000 +GST.
