Strasbourg - Uncovered Beauty




Uncovered Beauty









A Beauty Uncovered at Karaka.

Described by Tony as one of the standout colts in Book 2 at the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Yearling Sale, this Chestnut Colt is a more precocious type than is generally found in New Zealand. Born and Bred at Little Avondale Stud, this Colt was conceived in Victoria where his sire Strasbourg stands, and this means we have the added Vobis Silver, Vobis Gold and Vobis Sires bonuses to race for in the future.

Given his precocity, the Colt will be paid up for the Karaka Millions Race Series which offers over $5,000,000 in prize money for graduates each year. This colt has the strong physique and the athletic walk of a precocious 2yo and he will travel straight back from New Zealand to Victoria to begin the education process after a short break in the paddock.

His sire Strasbourg, a magnificent son of I Am Invincible, was a multiple Group winning 2yo for Peter & Paul Snowdon who cost $750,000 as a yearling himself. He has been a real success in the sale ring for breeders and has hit the ground running with 2 winners from 2 runners from his first 2yo runners.

His Dam Uncovered Beauty was a winner at 1200m and is by leading sire Per Incanto. On the maternal side there are many precocious 2yo's littered through the pedigree which is no surprise given the maternal Grandsire is none other than Danehill himself. Interestingly this Colt is bred has Danehill on both sides of his pedigree.

At $90,000NZD we believe this colt offers outstanding value for a precocious early running type. He has been reared at the fantastic Little Avondale nursery where 41 Gr.1 winners have been born and raised and unusually for a NZ bred is Vobis and Vobis Gold eligible which is so important here in Victoria.
