This colts mating is from the last crop devised by legendary studmaster, Sir Patrick Hogan. Conceived when Tavistock commanded his highest fee of $65,000, this colt hails from what is believed to be his sire’s best book of mares.
His dam Victoria Belle boasts a perfect producing record with three to race for three winners; including Champion 3YO in Singapore Mr Clint. Rated as the best Tavistock on the grounds by many, this colt is bred on the highly successful Tavistock/ Zabeel cross.
This cross runs at 17% stakes winners-runners for colts and has been responsible for producing Group One Derby winners Johnny Get Angry, Werther and Tarzino, as well as high-class Group winners Hasselhoof, Gobstopper and Pacrorus.
This family has produced genuine champions Foxwood, Sovereign Red and Gurner’s Lane.
This colt has now been named John Of Lancaster.
