Sire: Almanzor

Colour: Bay

Dam: Miss Banff

Sex: Colt

Age: 1

Foaled: Aug 30, 2022

Country: New Zealand


We are excited to purchase this lovely, big athletic colt at the New Zealand’s 2024 Karaka Sale.

By a Almanzor, the sire of VRC Derby winner Manzoice, he marks himself as a typical old fashioned New Zealand stayer.

Standing over a lot of ground, he is the type that make beautiful Derby horses.

There is plenty of spice in his pedigree with him being from a Fastnet Rock mare Miss Banff and his grand-dam, No Tricks, by Cox Plate winner Savabeel , was a dual stakes winner.

He is a real eye-catcher with great presence and is certain to be high demand.
