This young colt was bought by the Stable.ca at a recent auction. I had been watching the auction and liked what I saw during the sale. As soon as I heard that the Stable.ca was the one that had bought him, I let them know I wanted a share. He is a yearling which means he will shortly start his training and hopefully will be racing next summer. the information below is copied from the sale catalog.
