The colt

I was thrilled to secure this colt at the Magic Millions National Sale. I have purchased just the one yearling by Rubick with her racing as Rubisaki and being one of the most exciting horses we have raced for some time. This colt was offered by Edinglassie Stud which is one of our very best nurseries with Michael Talty being a breeder for whom I have enormous respect. Edinglassie has been a wonderful nursery producing outstanding horses including Shooting To Win, Deep Field, Nechita, Bentley Biscuit, God’s Own, Wonderful World, Nadeem, Sharscay, Miss Margaret and Suntain.

I have had very good success buying horses from Edinglassie including the very good gallopers Savoureux, Eramor and Shine On Anna. I purchased Eramor as a weanling and she went on to win the MRC Debutante Stakes.

This colt really grabbed my attention. He has a great hindquarter, good shoulder but most importantly he is a great walking horse. I loved him from the moment I inspected him and I was determined to purchase him.

By Rubick

Rubick has started off his career at stud in wonderful fashion. He is currently 3rd on the First Season Sire’s List for winners which is a great effort. Importantly, he is represented by some outstanding gallopers who look to have very bright futures. His best to date is the classy colt Yes Yes Yes. He is also represented by our outstanding filly Rubisaki which has won two of her three races and could easily be undefeated. A young sire could not do much more and he looks like having a very successful career at stud ahead of him. His yearlings this year sold up to $900,000.

Out of Ciavenna (Ire.)

Ciavenna is a very well related young mare that was purchased in Ireland and brought here to go to stud. Her first foal is a Foxwedge colt which is yet to be named. This is the 2nd foal and she is in foal to Hellbent. The matings done at Edinglassie are amongst the best of any of our studs with the mare certain to be well mated. She is the ½ sister to three stakes performers.

On the pedigree page is the Group 1 Hollywood Oaks winner Cambina. I love buying out of families with Oaks winners on the page.

I’m thrilled to have secured this colt and I look forward to his racing career. At $5,750 for a 5% share, he looks very well priced particularly when you consider the results his progeny could produce over the next six moths before the 2020 Yearling Sales Series.
