Purchased for enormous value at $95,000 from one of New Zealand’s leading studs, Haunui Farm, this colt is a strong and robust son of first crop sire Circus Maximus, a multiple Group 1 winner and Champion 3YO Miler in France and Champion Older Male Miler in Ireland.
By one of the world’s most renowned sire-of-sires in Galileo, Circus Maximus has all the credentials to be a successful stallion at stud.
This colt is out of O’Maille, a young mare by Champion Sire and legendary Champion Broodmare Sire O’Reilly and hails from a top New Zealand family, with his dam being a half-sister to Group 2 winner Needle And Thread and Listed winner/multiple Group 1 placegetter Savile Road.
These combined credentials also caught the eye of the 2023 Melbourne Cup and Caulfield Cup-winning training combo of Anthony & Sam Freedman, who requested to be in the purchase.
Anthony’s expertise as a trainer and a strategist has been well-known to Duncan for decades, and he was happy to combine here with a colt purchased at exceptional value.
Ownership opportunities are available to race him with DGR and leading trainers Anthony & Sam Freedman. Get in touch with Duncan for more information
