From the family of the multiple Group 1 winning VOILE D’OR and the Group 1 STC Mercedes Classic winner CURATA STORM, comes this great looking colt by the popular Western Australian speed stallion ROMMEL.

A dual Stakes winner, Rommel’s best two wins were in his classic year when he won both the Group 3 Zeditave Stakes over 1200m in Melbourne, and the Group 2 WA Guineas over 1600m in Perth. As a stallion at stud, he’s proving to be very popular in Western Australia where his best progeny include the brilliant dual Group 3 winner SNOWDOME, as well as the Hong Kong winner Tourbillon Prince, and Fiorucci Mama, Men’s Club, Catch These Hands, Rocapozzene, Ultimate Command, Bandalere Beau, Rommel’s Jeuney, Shaka Zulu etc.

Purchased from the 2024 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, this handsome colt is one of the better looking Rommel’s that you’d see. Bigger framed than most of the breed, with a gorgeous dark coat and plenty of presence about him, he’s a very good physical type who takes the eye. He’s got a great big stride on him, a beautiful walk with a loose hip action, a bit of a swagger actually, and a perfect overstep which you can see on the slow motion video which is available on our website. He’s out of a 5 time winning, stakes placed mare who at stud has had three to race for 2 winners, both being city winners at that. His half brother (out of the same mare) Green Shadows was good enough to win over $250,000…

Because he gives the indication that he’s likely to run early, he’s been nominated for the Magic Millions Race Series in Perth which features a $250,000 race for Magic Millions sale graduates as both 2 & 3 year olds. In addition to that, and very importantly, he’s a Westspeed Platinum horse which means that he’s got all the bonuses to run for, which means more potential prizemoney FOR YOU as one of his owners!

The Westspeed Bonus Scheme is a valuable initiative in the racing industry which offers many benefits to owners of eligible horse in Western Australia. In addition to providing specific races for eligible horses to compete in, the key advantage is the lucrative opportunity to earn additional prizemoney through a horse’s success on the track. As an example, a Westspeed Platinum horse earns a bonus of $33,000 for every metro prime win as a 2 & 3 year old in addition to $6,600 for running second and $3,300 for running third. It’s pretty much money for nothing compared to returns won by non Westspeed horses! The bonuses serve as an atttactive incentive to participate in racing, which in turn fosters a competitive and vibrant racing scene, bolstering the overall appeal of the industry.

We’ve appointed Luke Fernie to train this horse for us. Luke’s record is outstanding for a relatively young trainer, but with two generations of racehorse trainers preceding him, it’s no surprise at all that he’s had the success he’s had and is now regarded as one of the more successful Ascot based trainers. Horses like the Kalgoorlie Cup winner and Perth Cup runner up BE OPTIMISTIC, the Stakes winning LACED UP HEELS and the ultra exciting dynamic sprinter RIPCORD are just a few of the high class horses being trained by Luke. With good people, communication, and training skills, you’ll enjoy having your horse trained by Luke Fernie. He’ll give both your horse and you every opportunity to get in the Winners Circle!

You should be in for a lot of fun as an owner of this exciting colt.
