Karaka Day-2: Owners For NZ$2.2m Colt
And David Ellis told thoroughbrednews.co.nz the NZ$2.2 million colt has already been fully syndicated, declaring: "We had the syndicate finalised within a few hours of the sale." The syndicate will comprise: Des Hawkins (Wentwood Grange), Ray Coupland, Paul Norling, John Galvin, Brian McLaughlan, Graham Bax, Aussie Brown, Peter Yip, Karen Fenton-Ellis as well as the colt's breeders Peter & Philip Vela. The Stravinsky colt will be trained by Mark Walker at Matamata (who also prepares his half-brother Darci Brahma) & Ellis described him as the most impressive yearling he has seen since he started buying horses at Karaka: "He's the complete package. He is bigger in size than Darci Brahma."
