Foaled: Sep 27, 2018
Country: New Zealand
Trainer: Henry Dwyer
On Wednesday afternoon we proved our processes were again spot on even under the duress of COVID-19. RTD’s bloodstock agent John Foote and the team were organised with a short list and the first on our list was lot 34 a strapping Tarzino colt out of a stakes winning More Than Ready mare. It doesn’t come any better than this guy, he’s got size (16.1 hands), presence, athleticism and a black type pedigree that will make him a valuable commodity if he can win some black type himself.
We all know how good a horse Tarzino was, he was the champion 3YO colt in Australia in 2015-16, he was a dual Group 1 winner of the Rosehill Guineas and VRC Derby, and he also ran second in the Group 1 Australian Guineas over 1600m, he had a great turn of foot and amazing stamina. All of the attributes that you look for in a stallion. Interestingly he is the only Group 1 winning son of Tavistock to stand at stud.
The colt’s dam Readyor, by super sire More Than Ready was a stakes winner, one twice as a 2YO and won four races in total. She has produced six foals, four to race and two winners. This colt has the looks and the pedigree to make it as a racehorse. Check out the video below to see parade and a snippet of his breeze up by clicking the video below.
