His emphatic response was “Lot 92”. This colt just oozed class and presented himself at the auction with significant presence and quality. He looks like a complete athlete. Justin described him as a horse with the perfect shape who would be an exquisite specimen in a few months’ time. “He is reminiscent of Linebacker as a yearling, who was sold at this same auction.” He is, of course, by the same stallion as Linebacker, so sending him to the same trainer makes perfect sense. Therefore, he goes into training with Vaughan Marshall, one of the all-time great horsemen of this country, who happens to be lethal with a juvenile.
As a CRS graduate, he qualifies for an R100 000 bonus when winning as a juvenile. He is also eligible for the CRS Slipper to be run for R1 500 000 on Met Day in 2025.
The price advertised is inclusive of keep and insurance till the end of July 2024.
