Horse Description:

Outstanding colt by the champion racehorse Pierro.

This colt's sire, Pierro was a triple crown winner, having won the Golden Slipper, Sires Produce & Champagne Stakes at 2yrs. He was the champion two year old and held the title of leading 3yo in world rankings in 2013.

His dam, Walk Alone is a stakes winner herself, having won the Toy Show Quality along with 4 other metropolitan races. She is closely related to the brilliant galloper in Rain Affair.

This colt is a half brother to top galloper You'll Never (7 wins in Sydney) and Coventry (5 wins).

Our colt is a very relaxed, cool customer. He stands over good ground, has great ratios and a very smooth walk.

Lee secured this colt on 13/1/17 for $120,000.

He is BOBS eligible, will be nominated for the Golden Slipper and fully paid up for the Magic Millions race series.
