Turn Me Loose x Karmann Ghia Yearling Colt
A mature colt with a powerful and loose walk

A beautiful walking colt with presence, a good size and very correct. He is by a champion sprinter and middle distance horse TURN ME LOOSE and we had the inside word on him. Stephen Marsh trains the full-sister who is a two-year-old which he says it is very, very smart. He was therefore very keen for us to buy this colt and train it. We inspected him twice on the farm and again at Karaka and each time he was at the very top of our list to buy.

TURN ME LOOSE was an exceptional racehorse winning the Group 1 Two Thousand Guineas in New Zealand and two Group 1 races in Australia over 1400 metres at Weight For Age and 1600 metres. His oldest progeny are two-year-olds and the strong word on them is that they are very talented. He has an enormous pedigree with his dam a half-sister to three stakes performers, GALROOF, MANZEAL and LORD MICK. He is a half-brother to a horse we raced, Rip Into Ghia who was 2nd in the Group 3 Eulogy stakes behind VOLPE VELOCE as a spring three-year-old before being sold to Australia where she won two races. Every foal out of the dam to race has won, including NEW ELEGANCE in Hong Kong. He is also closely related to New Zealand filly of the year PLANET ROCK.

Physically he is a mature horse with a powerful and loose walk that gives every indication he is forward enough to race as a two-year-old and be an ideal Guineas and Karaka Million horse as a three-year-old.

In the video of him, you can hear why Stephen Marsh was so determined to buy him and his opinion of the full-sister. We are really excited by him.
