We know this family so well from New Zealand where it has produced a succession of high class, dark brown fillies just like this one, including her Group 3 winning dam and her dual Group 2 winning sister, their Group 1 winning grand-dam and her dual stakes-winning dam.

This filly in Paul Moroney's opinion had the most class of any filly in the Classic sale and indeed appealed as a Classic prospect.

Paul Moroney was particularly taken with the athletic style of this colt which is by one of the most promising young sires in Australia. He appealed as highly likely to make an early 2yo and reminded him a lot of his maternal grandsire Green Desert.

The colt hails from a deep European family of sprinter/milers including his French 1000 Guineas winning third dam.

MANHATTAN RAIN x HIGH TEA (by High Chaparral)

Paul Moroney saw a lot of dam sire High Chaparral about this athletic, staying colt.

Bought as a potential Derby colt, he is from an outstanding New Zealand staying family which includes the dam's half sister Prized Gem (Brisbane Cup) and Australian Derby winner Nom du Jeu.

BLACK PEPPERMINT (Americian x Willisa)

Purpose bred stayer for the future. Half brother to BLACK TOMAHAWK, who Mike trained to win the Harry White Classic (L) in 2015. Very similar physically, ie, tall, stands over ground and will develop further. He also looks like AMERICAIN who won from 1400 to 3200 metres and famously won the Melbourne Cup (G1). In total AMERICAIN won 11 races (9 were stakes races) and raced in three Melbourne Cups. AMERICAIN also won his first start at 1400m overseas, and also in Australia, the Geelong Cup (G3) , Moonee Valley Gold Cup (G2) and the Sandown Classic (G2).

Black Peppermint’s dam Willisa was a Melbourne winner, and her full brother won on every metro Melbourne track and was stakes placed. Toughness, determination and staying are a feature of this family. Another half brother by ARAZI (also the damsire of AMERICAIN), Mr Satnav won a 3200m race (in the country) by 12 lengths. Staying ability comes from the RECKLESS part of the pedigree but further back, NZ bred stakes winners HAPPY UNION, IRISH LORD and GODSEND feature.

His tabulated pedigree shows duplications of blue hen mares: Cinna; Lavendula; Mumtaz Mahal amongst other famous names.

Super VOBIS and VOBIS GOLD nominated.

Patient, staying loving owners welcome.

New Zealand


By proven international Group One sire Iffraaj, the colt is a three-quarter brother to triple Group One winner Gingernuts (Iffraaj), who recorded victories in the New Zealand Derby (Gr. 1, 2400m), Randwick Guineas (Gr. 1, 2000m), and Windsor Park Plate (Gr. 1, 1600m).

His dam, Runway, by champion sire and current leading broodmare sire Pins, was a versatile and hardy race mare that won three times up to 1600 metres.

The dam sire line is one to behold, with the grand-dam being by English Derby (Gr. 1, 2400m) winner Generous, third dam Oregon is the dam-sire of dual Hong Kong Horse of the Year Ambitious Dragon (Pins), and the fourth dam by the godfather of New Zealand sires Sir Tristram.

Selected by international bloodstock consultant Paul Moroney: “One of the most balanced, good-bodied yearling colts I saw this year and he used himself particularly well during inspections. By the sire of top-flight males Gingernuts, Jon Snow, Turn Me Loose and Wyndspelle, he is a three-quarter brother to Gingernuts but has more natural muscle than his illustrious relative and likely come earlier as a late 2YO and potential Guineas colt.”

A 10% share $15,335 plus GST & insurance $550 (insured to 31 January 2021).

EL ROCA x LOTTA LUV (by Dubawi)

By emerging young sire El Roca (Fastnet Rock), currently third in the Second Season Sires List, who has already left Group One winner and third placed Travelling Light, while champion stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill) is already making a name for himself as a sire of sires.

In addition to being by a promising stallion, his dam sire Dubawi (Dubai Millennium) is currently the No. 1 rated stallion in the TRC Global Stallion Rankings. A devastating six-length winner of 2000 Dubai World Cup (Gr. 1, 2000m) in track record time (1:59.5), Dubai Millennium was named the best racehorse in the world with his Timeform rating (134) ranking him ahead of Sinndar (132) and Montjeu (130). He ended his career with a Timeform rating of 140, before unfortunately dying after producing only 56 foals from his first crop. Thankfully, one of them was triple Group One winner Dubawi who stands for £250,000.

He was selected by international bloodstock consultant Paul Moroney: “When I first looked at the El Roca colt I thought he had all the qualities of the best Fastnet Rock colts and decided we had to buy him. He was one of the most athletic colts we saw at Karaka this year - a fantastic mover. He has so much of his outstanding international sire Dubawi about him and from a family which has left high-class Group One winners Ebony Grosve, Rocket Man and Our Giant.”

A 10% share is $11,100 plus GST & insurance $411 (insured to 31 January 2021).

WROTE x LILYPUT (by O'Reilly)

By sire of sires High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells), Wrote won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (Gr. 1, 1600m) as a two-year-old in the US, sire of 41 runners, 21 winners, and now standing permanently in New Zealand, the filly is from his first crop yearlings.

Wrote is a sire with exceptional pedigree, highly rated (A+) as a physical specimen, and by an internationally acclaimed sire (High Chaparral, 113 stakes winners) that had so much success when bred with NZ mares.

The dam side of her pedigree is from a very good Waikato Stud family and from a mare by multiple champion stallion and NZ leading broodmare sire (wins) O’Reilly (Last Tycoon).

She was selected by international bloodstock consultant Paul Moroney: “More of a three-year-old type, she is an outstandingly athletic filly with plenty of scope and a great mover. Wrote is a fast son of a top-class sire (High Chaparral), highly performed and has a terrific chance of making it as a stallion.”

10% share $3,145 plus GST & insurance $144.00 (insured to 31 January 2021).

Her sire Burgundy (Redoute’s Choice), a three-quarter brother to multiple champion stallion Darci Brahma (Danehill), won five stakes races and his first three two-year-olds to the races all won. He sired New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Dijon Bleu and was Leading Second Season Sire.

From a young mare by five-time Champion Sire and emerging broodmare sire Savabeel (Zabeel), the dam, Saveadance, has already left a winner over 1100 metres, and notably the filly carries a Zabeel (Sir Tristram) cross as the dam-sire of Burgundy and sire of the dam.

She is from a family that Ballymore knows well, one noted for producing horses with a good turn of foot (acceleration), including New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Singalong (Danasinga), powerful sprinter Coup Ray (Exploding Prospect) a winner of 11 races including the Concorde (Gr. 2, 1200m), and stakes winning two-year-old Penny Arcade (Straussbrook).

Selected by international bloodstock consultant Paul Moroney, he said: “There are a lot of similarities to Zabeel about her. She is a good moving filly, athletic, that looks to have Spring classics potential as a three-year-old.”

10% share $3,145 plus GST & insurance $144 (insured to 31 January 2021).

By high-class international stallion Street Cry, the sire of out and out champion Winx (37 wins and NZ$28.1 million) and Champion American racehorse Zenyatta (winner of 19 from 20), the filly is from the first crop of beautifully bred young stallion Telperion.

In bred to Danehill (most successful sire of all-time: 349 stakes winners), as the sire of dam sire Fastnet Rock, who puts strength and substance into his stock almost unmatched by any other sire in Australasia. And the dam sire of Telperion is Redoute’s Choice (Danehill), the undisputed king of Australian sires.

Telperion is a half-brother to immensely talented Randwick Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m) and multiple Group performed Kementari (Lonhro).

The filly is the first foal out of Platinum Monarch, as mentioned by Fastnet Rock. Her grand-dam is by widely acclaimed international sire Kingmambo, in turn out of a mare by leading sire and sire of sires Storm Cat, who for a time stood for $500,000 service fee.

She is currently being broken in.

10% share $4,700 plus GST & insurance $190.50 (insured to 31 January 2021).
