Horse Description:

Another Tavistock comes to Dalziel Racing from the NZ Premier Sale!

To be trained by champion South Australian trainer Phillip Stokes.


This colt is closely related to former top mare ZARITA and one of Hong Kong's stars in JOY AND FUN.

Peter Moody earmarked this colt very early in the inspections and we were thrilled to secure him for just $75,000. From a Group 1 winning family he represents great value for money.
