There have been several exciting pedigree updates since the
catalogue went to print.
Epako, a half to the dam of Lot 9, is now a winner in
Germany adding to an already impressive winning family on the dam’s side.
Mr Clint has had two further feature placings in Singapore
giving a boost to the pedigree of lot 92, the Savabeel colt out of Lagonissi.
Chouxter, who is a half to lot 217 the Tavistock x Ritzy
Lady colt, was placed in his second career start for Darren Weir earlier this
month and only finished .2 lengths off the winner. He is nominated for Moonee Valley on Friday
Lot 381, the Ocean Park colt out of Bhiwani, is closely related
to Tavidance who has had a win in Australia and ran third in the Listed TCL TV
Stakes at Flemington since the catalogue went to print.
It should also be noted that the Shooting to Win x Enide and
Atlante x Genuine Offer have both been gelded.
Brent and Cherry Taylor welcome any enquires on the draft (which can be viewed here) and will be at Karaka over the coming week.
