It's no secret that our selection team mark up any yearling that has the legendary Mill Reef in its pedigree with the physical attributes of the great racehorse and sire which has brought both Second Coming and Xcellent our way.

This particular colt jumped out at us at 2015 Karaka Premier with that same Classic-line connection. His stakes-performed and stakes-producing dam Zerello is by Zerpour, son of high class sire Darshaan, himself a son of English Derby winner and top stallion Shirley Heights, of course by Mill Reef.

The colt's sire Rip Van Winkle has made a flying start to his stud career, siring a G1 winner in Europe from his first crop and we predict he will follow in the footsteps of his illustrious sire Galileo, likewise by another legendary sire Sadler's Wells which means this colt carries the proven international cross of Sadler's Wells over Darshaan.
