Colt by dominant Derby sire Tavistock

Derby sire Tavistock

Classic style of colt by Tavistock out of the Zabeel mare Miss la Frenz. Poised to be a Derby contender, he was purchased by Duncan from Westbury Stud’s NZB Book 1 draft for NZ$150,000.

Trained by John O’Shea

This colt is purpose-bred and subsequently built for the Classics and Derbies with a bright future looking towards the Cups. This a family we are very familiar with having raced Group Two winner Miss Gunpowder who features in this colt’s third dam.

Out of the winning Zabeel mare Miss la Frenz (who has produced two winners from three runners), he is bred on the magic Tavistock/Zabeel cross which has already produced Group One Derby winners Johnny Get Angry, Tarzino and Werther.

We look forward to this colt being our first racing venture with highly successful syndication company Champion Thoroughbreds. Once broken-in, this colt will join the stable of prominent Sydney trainer John O’Shea. We currently have three horses in work with John; all of which are winners with black-type targets on the cards for the prestigious ‘Championships’ this autumn.

This colt has now been named Safari Park.

Duncan's Comments

“He's the perfect classic style of colt bred on the unstoppable Tavistock/Zabeel cross that has produced G1 Derby winners Werther, Tarzino and Johnny Get Angry. ”
