Ardrossan x Nellie Bly colt – 25% REMAINING

New Zealand-bred yearling colt by Ardrossan; out of four-time winning mare, Nellie Bly.

Ardrossan is off to a good start with his progeny; with limited mares to date, he has had just 36 starters in his first two crops represented by sixteen individual winners including four stakes winners. At the moment, he’s New Zealand’s version of Australia’s Extreme Choice and is becoming very popular amongst buyers.

The mother, Nellie Bly, was a winner of four races and narrowly missed a Group 3 placing beaten a whisker.

From a family that gets better with age.

This colt is a big, strong yearling. I inspected all Ardrossan’s at Karaka in late January and I think this horse would have rivalled some of the top Ardrossan lots at the sale. I’ve been keen to get my hands on his progeny, a rare commodity with an increasing popularity!

A level-headed horse who took everything in his stride during his first preparation. He was broken in, flew to Australia and came straight into the stable; and was up and doing some faster work with horses who have had more preparations than him. It’s fair to say I’m excited about this horse.

NZ$45,000 purchase.
