Purchased from the recent 2YO Magic Millions Ready To Run sale is this colt by Vancouver. Beautifully bred this colt has blue blood on the sire and dams side and was purchased for only $55k.

Vancouver who stands at the Global Organisation, Coolmore, he is a son of Medaglia D’Oro. Vancouver’s grandam is the dual Gr.1 winning Champion sprinter Skating.

From barrier 16 he won the Gr.1 Golden Slipper in the same time as leading first season sire Pierro and faster than the likes of Capitalist, Luskin Star, Marscay, Rory’s Jester, Danzero, Flying Spur, Stratum & Sebring. Vancouver won over distances from 1000m to 1200m. He currently stands at $44k so this colt we have purchased is of excellent value.

With his oldest progeny just turning two year olds, he has had two starters, both in stakes races and both placed! Ticket To Ride placed 3rd in in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes and Postcode placed 2nd in the Group 3 Breeders Plate.

Out of the dam Berrimilla, she is a daughter of world famous Fastnet Rock. She was a six time winner on the track and amassed over $475,000 in prize money!! A young dam, this Vancouver colt is her first foal. She has an American Pharaoh yearling colt and also this year had another American Pharaoh colt on the ground. So one would think and hope plenty of upside in the family to follow!

Berrimilla is out of the dam Purrfection, she is a half sister to the very good and versatile performer Boundless. A winner of over $598k.

The colt has been broken in, spelled, pre trained and completed his breeze up in 11.10 seconds. He is now spelling for a month at Kolora Lodge in Queensland and will then be brought back into pre training. He will complete his pre training at Kolora Lodge and then come down to our Caulfield stable.

Ownership opportunities include purchase price and GST, all vet checks, transport from sale, 12 months mortality insurance.
