Ascot based trainer Martin Allan is making a good name for himself as he continues to churn out a constant string of winners in just his third year of training. He’s also proving that he’s got a good eye for a horse too with a few of his ‘picks’ for us being the three time winner He’s A Gunslinger, the highly promising Great Waters and the talented 2yo Spiced Delight. At the recent Magic Millions Perth 2020 Yearling Sale, this colt by Oratorio was Martin’s number one pick, and so we simply had to buy him.

Oratorio has been such a good stallion over the years and has been able to produce good jump and run types that can win in their juvenile season and then race on to become very handy as older horses. Think of quality gallopers such as LUCKY STREET, MOTION PICTURES and GOLD ROCKS all of whom won the G2 Karrakatta Plate, and throw in CLUELESS ANGELWARATAH’S SECRET and MISTY METAL among Oratorio’s 258 individual winners, and you can see that he’s been, and continues to be a potent source of prolific winners in Western Australia.

This colt from the Xaar mare ‘Xaaristic’, hails from the family of smart performers HARDRADA (G1 Railway Stakes winner), RANGER (G2 Lee Steere Stakes winner) and STORM ALERT (G3 MRC Cockram Stakes). He’s a half brother to three winners, and importantly, two of those winners were multiple winners as two year olds, and we point that out because this colt looks every bit the type of horse

that’ll run early and give his owners the opportunity to take advantage of the lucrative bonuses on offer through the Westspeed Platinum Incentive Scheme.

As an example, a Westspeed Platinum eligible horse such as this one will win a gross of $74,300 for every prime metro win (usually Saturday city races) during it’s 2yo and 3yo career. That’s more than you get for winning a typical $100,000 Listed race!  Just one win and this horse has paid for himself!

He’s a strong, correct early running type by the right stallion to get you in the winners circle, and he was given the go ahead from our consulting equine vet with regards to his opinion on x-rays of all joints, examination of the upper airways, and a general physical appraisal. You shouldn’t have to wait long at all to be getting this horse to the races.

This is a 20 share syndicate priced at $3,950 each with syndicate fees of $220/month (commencing on July 1st) which are calculated to cover all normal racing, training, transport, management/admin, and vet costs. With the exception of annual insurance (which is optional anyway) and the possibility of big race nominations and acceptance fees (which are bills that you want because it means that you’ve got a good horse), there should be nothing else to pay other than the fixed monthly syndicate fee.

He’s a good looking young horse with plenty of potential, he’s from a winning family, he’ll be trained by a young trainer who’s eager for success, and he’s eligible for both the Westspeed Platinum Bonus Scheme and the Magic Millions Perth Series races which potentially means more prizemoney to be won! I hope you can join me in racing this exciting young prospect…Peter Morley
