DGR’s Duncan Ramage and trainer John Sargent hit the ground running at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale to secure Lot 6, a striking colt by exceptional G1 sire Pierro, out of the young Sebring mare, Lady Balmain.
Consistently among the top sires in Australia, Pierro’s wnrs/rnrs strike rate sits at 68%, and he has sired numerous G1 winning colts/geldings, such as; Regal Power, Shadow Hero, Pierata and Levendi.
An extremely versatile stallion, Pierro has a unique ability to sire top horses across the board, from Champion Sprinters and Middle Distance horses to Derby and Oaks winners.
This colt’s dam Lady Balmain is a sister to 7-time winning sprinter and now sire, Supido, who won the G3 MRC Sir John Monash Stakes and was placed in the G1 SAJC Goodwood Handicap, G2 ATC Challenge Stakes, G1 VRC Lightning Stakes and G1 MVRC William Reid Stakes.
Purchased from Torryburn Stud’s draft for A$180,000, he is a beautiful mover that grabbed Duncan’s attention from the moment he stepped onto the parade ring. He’s an eye-catching colt and will be trained by trusted DGR trainer John Sargent in Randwick.
Ownership opportunities are available to race him with DGR and John Sargent, please get in touch with Duncan for more information.
