STABLE VISIT TO VIEW - Saturday July 13th. If you are considering a share in this colt and would like to join us to see him, please email to book.

Following the huge success story for us last Summer, that was RED ZONE HERO, (now racing in Hong Kong, with the new name of HELENE WARRIOR) in winning twice and showing himself to be a virtual pattern class performer, his FULL BROTHER was always going to be firmly on our radar at Book 2 of the Tattersalls yearling sales.

We definitely weren’t disappointed when we went to view him, in fact we’d happily pigeonhole him as a much better model that his year older sibling. Having recently sold Red Zone Hero for a multiple six figure sum, to continue his racing career in Hong Kong, we knew we’d have to dig pretty deep, given the pedigree update* and horse model upgrade.

Watch his profile video, here:

Red Zone Hero aside, this colt is also a half-brother to the Group 1 performer Son Of Rest and being by STARSPANGLEDBANNER., our colt could represent exceptional value in a year or two’s time, having been knocked down in our direction for 100,000gns.

Starspangledbanner is now the sire of 7 Group 1 winners after Beauty Eternal won the £2m Group 1 Champions Mile in Hong Kong on April 28th:

Who better to send the colt to, than Red Zone Hero’s trainer, the Epsom Derby winning trainer, Michael Bell?

The sky’s the limit for this fabulous colt. He has such presence, as you can see for yourself for the photos and videos of him, and he’s a beautiful mover too, he walks for fun. An upgrade on looks than his Timeform 94 rated elder sibling, we’d love to think he’ll make up into a stakes performer in 2024.
