Horse Description:

Good sized young horse with a very good pedigree. He's by the World class, multiple European Stakes Winning stayer ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE.

Home bred by a small partnership that own his dam Secret Salsa, this gelding is trained at Caulfield (VIC) by Luke Oliver.

He's had the one trial but pulled up shinsore and was sent for a spell. Now back in work and we'd expect to see him trialling once again in early December...
