I am pleased to advise of the purchase over the weekend of a new horse into the “OHA Stable” to be trained by Alisa Vermay. A picture of him is attached.
Details of the purchase including Alisa's thoughts on his prospects are outlined below.
He is currently being broken in at an offsite facility.
The horse will race in our magenta and black colours and a race name will be chosen by consensus with syndicate members down the track.
Where to from here?
There will be 30 shares offered. 17 have already been sold. Multiple shares can be purchased.
Costs will be as follows;
Up front payment for the initial purchase of the colt : $1170 per share (due asap)
Annual payment for ongoing training, agistment, feed etc : $1300 per share (due Friday 15 July)
Further details from Alisa Vermay
"We have now reached the end of the Vobis Gold yearling sales for 2016. I am pleased with our purchase and offer to you a very nicely built, willing and despite being a late November born foal, improving type.
Compared to the other yearlings that were born in September and October, this Colt looks just as good as they do and he is still 1-2 months behind (birth date) which relates back to the room for improvement comment. The Colt is by Stryker,who is on fire at the moment, having sired multiple NZ Group winner RANGIPO whose wins include the Group 1 NZ DERBY. This is a great producing family that's hitting the winning circles right now. Looking down the page at his dam's breeding, she is by Zabeel which we all know by now is a staying line. The dam herself won over 1290-1600, producing a Kilmore cup winner who has won in the city and 2nd in the Seymour cup. The dam has produced 7 other winners so it is a winning family line. There is also one of the dam's winner called Forest Baby, who I used to ride everyday. She won 7 races from 1000-1900m. "
