Sire: Rock 'n' Pop
Foaled: Nov 03, 2017
Country: New Zealand
Trainer: Stephen Gray
Silks: Dark Blue, White Star, Checked Sleeves & Cap
Destined For SINGAPORE!
At the 2019 Karaka (New Zealand) yearling sales, this colt by Rock ‘N’ Pop caught our eye with his sheer physical, raw boned presence.
He’s a genuinely strong, muscular, athletic type, and as a physical specimen he was pretty easy to pick. Singapore trainer Stephen Gray and myself inspected the horse together and we agreed that he looked like a good type for Singapore.
He’s a cracking individual and looks a real running type-as you can see from the photo. From a conformation point of view, he’s quite correct, and the pre-sale x-rays of his joints were good. From a pedigree point of view, he’s by a very handy young NZ based stallion Rock ‘n’ Pop-winner of the Group 1 New Zealand Two Thousand Guineas. Every dam on his pedigree page is a winner, and collectively they’ve won in excess of 100 races between them. As producers, his third dam Gay Antionette has had 8 to race for 6 winners, his second dam Our Celerity has had 11 to race for 9 winners, and he himself is just the third foal of Alainn with the other two yet to race.
After a spell in a nice green paddock post sale-during which time he’s been gelded-he’s started the process of being broken into saddle (early April). We’ll put him through trainer Stephen Gray’s tried, tested and proven programme with the intention of sending him to race in Singapore assuming that he shows enough talent when he trials in New Zealand. We think he represents a very good opportunity for people to get into a nice horse destined to race in Singapore at a price that’s easily affordable.
This is a 20 share syndicate priced at $1,495 each, which includes the share in the horse, breaking in, and all other acquisition, transport and holding costs incurred to July 1st 2019 which, to be fair to everyone, is the date that syndicate fees commence on for all owners irrespective of sign up date.
The fees are set at $230.00 per calendar month payable quarterly in advance by direct debit. This amount is budgeted to include all normal anticipated costs associated with racing a horse in Singapore including training, farrier, vet bills and other horse related expenses, syndicate management and communication.
