Shamus Award X Australia Day
1 year old Brown Colt
Sire: Shamus Award Dam: Australia Day
This colt is by Champion 3yo Shamus Award out of Sebring mare AUSTRALIA DAY who won as an early December 2yo on debut by a super-impressive 4.5L and was then Stakes-Placed at her 2nd start.
He is a big, strong, mature colt that is athletic and well-balanced and has good, short cannons with good bone. He is an early August foal that shouldn't take long to get going but possesses the scope to go on as a 3yo.
Shamus Award, by Snitzel, was himself very precocious, being a multiple stakes-performer as a 2yo in the Spring and Autumn before going on to win the W.S. Cox Plate as a 3yo, like successful sires Savabeel and So You Think. Shamus Award then returned as an Autumn 3yo to make history by leading all the way in the G1 Australian Guineas at Flemington.
As a stallion, Shamus Award has hit the board early with impressive types such as CAUSEWAY GIRL - who won on debut by 7.5L before being beat a nose in the G3 Red Roses 1100m on Oaks Day at Flemington - and MR QUICKIE - who is now 6 wins from 8 starts, including $241k in prizemoney, and is destined to win group races in the future.
This colt was purchased for $75,000 at the recent Sydney Inglis Classic Sale. He went straight to our breaker John Ledger for a 4-5week preparation and once finished will have a spell.
Ownership opportunities include purchase price and GST, all vet checks, transport from sale, breaking in expenses, Inglis Race Series and 12 months mortality insurance.
