BEAUTIFUL COLT WITH STRONG PEDIGREE, LOOKS LIKE AN EARLY TYPE

This is a beautiful colt. The colt has all the attributes including a strong pedigree to match, tough and exceptionally fast and agile.

A great mover and very light on his feet. This colt has been broken in and Gordon Pratt thinks this Colt looks like an early type, currently in pre-training at Evergreen Stud with astute horseman Gordon Pratt.
