Horse Description:

The first horse to be placed in South Australia by Grand Syndicates and we hope that there'll be many more to follow!

A young horse who's shown good ability, showed plenty of ability as a 2yo and early 3yo, running a number of places in good races before demolishing a field at Strathalbyn to break his maiden in style.
