“Not only does his record speak for itself, only being out of the money on three occasions, and pacing two of his last runs in 1:47, his pedigree and pure presence is outstanding. He is one of those horses who immediately takes your eye, and his beautiful nature makes him a pleasure to work with” said Luke McCarthy from Cobbitty Equine Farm.
Luke’s brother Andy McCarthy who had the pleasure of driving him ranked him on top of all the two year old pacing colts he has driven, stating “once you ask him to go he gives you goose bumps”.
