A February-foaled two-year-old colt by Moohaajim out of the proven broodmare Spacecraft is offered for sale. He will trained by multiple Grp-1 and Classic winning trainer Bryan Smart from his North Yorkshire base, and is available to sell as a whole or could be divided into shares.
He was purchased out of Tattersalls Book 3 last October, a sale from which the trainer has bought five horses over the past two years, all of whom have won. That list includes the exciting Antagonize, who was unbeaten in two starts last year and is entered in the upcoming 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket.
The dam Spacecraft has produced four winners to date, including the very smart Exodus, who was runner-up in the Grp-3 2,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown and fourth in the Grp-1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud and has since gone on to stallion duties. The extended family is one of exceptional quality, featuring Grp-1 winners such as Expert Eye, Special Duty, Tates Creek and Etoile Montante.
The sire Moohaajim won the Grp-2 Mill Reef Stakes and was runner-up in the Grp-1 Middle Park Stakes as a two-year-old. He was represented by his first-crop last year and has accrued some truly remarkable results. Despite only having a total of half a dozen runners in Britain to date, they have won 11 races between them, with plenty more placed besides, whilst his progeny have sold at auction for as much as 145,000gns.
Such details bode extremely well for this young colt, who is a strong and athletic type - as can be seen from the pictures - and who has taken everything in his stride so far. He looks a typical early two-year-old and could easily prove an absolute bargain at the advertised price.
