Yep, call the Police-I’m pretty certain that this colt is yet another of our ‘sales ring steals’!

This is a lot of horse and a lot of pedigree for just $17,000…

The progeny of Shooting To Win have sold well through the early stages of 2022 demanding an average price of $54,000. Hot on the heels of recent Group 1 winner in New Zealand MASCARPONE, the progeny of Shooting To Win continue to fire through the likes of Kubrick, Majestic Shot, Majestic Fame, Charleton Eddie, Fatale Femme and Dom To Shoot to name just a few. Whilst the price of yearlings in 2022 have increased significantly compared to recent years, it was a pleasant change for buyers to be at the Magic Millions Adelaide where some normality returned to the market. It’s there that we were able to buy this great looking colt for just $17,000.

The dam of our colt is Harlem Shuffle, a Sydney city winning Oratorio mare who’s already produced two winners from just two to race. She’s a half sister to the Listed winner HARLEM RIVER who’s produced the very smart 2 year old of this season Lady Harlem, who was runner up in the $400,000 Inglis banner (Restricted Listed) at her only start. Further down the pedigree, we see that this colt’s third dam, the unraced mare Steam Heat, has had an impressive 13 foals to race and incredibly, all have been winners! Now that takes some beating!  Two of those fillies went on to stud and between them produced The Everest winner YES YES YES, and the dual Group 1 winning sprinter IN HER TIME.  Like I said, that’s a lot of pedigree for $17,000!

We selected this colt in conjunction with trainer Misty Bazely who went to the Adelaide sales because yearlings at the Perth sale a month earlier were just too hard to buy. She saw this colt and absolutely wanted to take him home with her. Personally, I think we got him for a third of the price that he would have been at any other sale. We were pleased to help out, and even more pleased to see him joining our team in Perth.

Syndicate details will be announced shortly, but I can tell you that for anyone who’s already a client of ours, the price will only be around $1,250 for a 5% share…
