Foaled: Aug 24, 2017
Esprit Racing is thrilled to have secured this outstanding yearling colt at the Magic Millions sales on the Gold Coast.
A colt by the incredible sire SNITZEL, who has a $220,000 service fee and a staggering 15% Stakes winners, from a very well performed Group 3 winning, Group 2 placed mare IMANA.
Striking, with a real presence, this colt has the physical attributes to be an early runner and the potential to be a 2yo and 3yo Magic Millions contender.
A SNITZEL from a Stakes winning mare, at a bargain price….
The colt was floated to Golden Gully on January 14, and will spell before being called to commence his education in a few months.
