Here's your Derby horse! Tavistock is Australasia's dominant staying stallion having already sired the Derby winner in Victoria, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore. This colt's dam is 3 from 3 in producing STAKES-CLASS horses and we're confident this will be her fourth!
Two of Belongs In Light's stakes winners are by an average stallion in Handsome Ransom, and the third is HARLOW GOLD - a full brother to this colt - who was 2nd in this season's Gr1 VRC Oaks and 3rd in the Gr1 Vinery.
Tavistock has so far proven that he is SEX-BIASED towards colts with 4 x Gr1 winning colts - Werther, Tarzino, Tavago and Volkstock'n'barrel - and no fillies yet to reach the top level. Though if any Tavistock filly is to win a big one soon it would be Harlow Gold, as she is by far and away Tavistock's best-performed daughter.
This loose-walking colt has a magnificent stride and is correct, light on his feet, and rather similar in type to two of the best Tavistock colts Werther and Tavago. He is full of quality and displayed a terrific temperament during all of our inspections.
He has been broken in and has worked around our training complex at Cranbourne where he displayed a confident and forward attitude.
