First Duporth weanling to be offered Australasia wide
I am offering the above colt from the consignment of Curraghmore Stud next Monday.
He’s an interesting horse because he represents the very first weanling by the newcomer sire Duporth (Red Ransom) to be offered anywhere in Australasia.
I bought the mare last year privately through fellow bloodstock agent Michael Wallace. I liked her for a number of reasons; with the top of the list being the fact that she’s by Zabeel. The Super Sire clearly leads the Broodmare Sire Premierships in both Australia and New Zealand. On Saturday his influence in the dam sire role was vividly-clear with Atlantic Jewel (All Aged Stakes) and Invest (Schweppes Oaks) being Group One winners from his daughters.
The dam of this colt, Be Inspired, is from a Centaine mare, who in turn, is from a Mill Reef mare – that’s lovely blood in my book. Be Inspired is a sister to Rainbow Styling (Gr.3 & LR winner of 8 races) and a half-sister to Zingaling (Gr.3 & LR winner). The NZB Sale pedigree can be VIEWED HERE.
Gordon Cunningham has done his usual expert preparation job with this colt; he’s been a progressive horse and I expect him to look spot-on when he’s paraded to buyers this weekend.
