Sire: Merchant Navy

Colour: Bay

Dam: That's How I Roll

Sex: Colt

Age: 1

Foaled: Sep 22, 2019

Country: Australia


This son of Merchant Navy was purchased from the Gold Coast Magic Millions sale.

Merchant Navy was an unbeaten 2YO and a dual Gr1 winning 3YO sprinter by super sire Fastnet Rock. His first yearlings in 2021 have sold for $500,000, $425,000, $400,000, $340,000, $320,000, $260,000, $250,000 etc. So we think we have bought at great value at $170k.

Merchant Navy added his name to the roll in the VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes, taking his place in history in spectacular fashion: weaving a passage over the final 100m to catch tearaway leader, Invincible Star, right on the wire. Even better still for connections, Merchant Navy has the pedigree to match his talent for speed.

Merchant Navy is one of the fastest sons of world super sire Fastnet Rock. He is a full brother to 1200m Group Two winner Jolie Bay.


Out of the dam That’s How I Roll, she is a winning Black type  American mare. The dam of three foals to race, two have been winners. The dam is out of Black Type winner and producer Chatter Chatter who has produced four Black Type winners.

The colt is currently at Kolora Lodge in Queensland spelling before he begins his breaking in and education process.

The colt was purchased for $180,000. Ownership opportunities includes purchase price, transport from the sales, vetting (including scope, x-ray inspections and clinical exam), twelve month mortality insurance, emergency surgery cover, breaking in, one month agistment, photos/video, Magic Millions Race Series and GST.
