"I bought the mare in foal to Lope De Vega," says Mahon. "She's a lovely mare and it's a good family - there have been plenty of updates under the second dam since."Going to Shamardal was the obvious choice given she's a half-sister to Dubai Prince. This was a grand colt. He's a good mover, a two-year-old type with a big backside on him. I hope he turns out to be a champion for his new owner."
"He's for a new client and we'll decide shortly where he'll be trained," said Duarte. "We're looking for a potential Classic horse and he fitted the bill. The mare is doing the job too."I like the Camelots as a group. He's a well-bred horse and should have a good chance of producing good horses like himself - hopefully starting with this colt!"
"He was a lovely foal who was born on Valentines Day," recalls Stauffenberg. "We were hoping for a filly - it would be lovely to have a Sinndar filly from that family - but it wasn't to be. And the mare has had nothing but colts recently so we're lacking a filly out of her. She has another colt foal on the ground by Sinndar."He's always looked like a racehorse. It's a fantastic price."
“He just looked a real tough, hardy trainers horse,” said Gold. “I saw him three times and every time I looked at him he seemed to have a good attitude, very down to earth, he just got on with the job. I was very surprised we had to pay so much but quite a few of the trainer liked him. I’ve been very impressed by the sire’s stock. He looks like he could be a loss.”
