Almanzor / Sitting on a Hill Colt

PEDIGREE UPDATE: Almanzor had an impressive Autumn Carnival, siring seven stakes winners, highlighted by a quinella in the Group 1 Sydney Cup with Circle Of Fire and Athabascan, making his progeny hot property!

This is a colt with a great stride and physical presence, and we expect him to mature and develop into a lovely 3YO with Classic races in Australia the long-term goal.

Almanzor is a son of Champion 2YO and leading young sire Wootton Bassett. He was an extraordinary racehorse, a triple Gr.1 winner and European Champion at three years old over 1600m – 2000m. He boasts an impeccable physique and his first two generations on the track have included Classic prospects and Black-type performers such as Gr.1 Victoria Derby winner Manzoice and Gr.3 Championship Stakes winner Cheval D’Or.

He is out of the talented stakes placed, 2YO winning mare Sitting On A Hill, who has produced three stakes class horses to date including LORD TURBO – LITTLE DRAGON, ALCALDESA and Rapid Falls.

He is a very straightforward, easy-to-like horse. He is currently in his first educational preparation at our Rosehill stables.

Purchased for $150,000 (NZD) from the Karaka Yearling Sale.
