Ferlax X Registered Nurse
2 year old Grulla Colt
Sire: Ferlax Dam: Registered Nurse
The nicest type of horse you could hope for.Purchased from the Karaka Sales this colt is impressive both in looks and physique.A strong athletic type who absolutely oozes 'presence', he's got good body and leg conformation, has a big stride, and we were thrilled to secure him.
He's by the Group 1 Australian Guineas winner FERLAX who was a racehorse of the highest calibre. Undefeated at his first four starts as a 3yo, that fourth start being the Australian Guineas over 1600m, he returned as a 4yo making the graduation to elite weight for age level, finishing second in the Group One Memsie Stakes (1400m). In what was considered one of the hottest Group One races of the Melbourne Spring, he was beaten only by the Champion mare Atlantic Jewel. Finishing behind Ferlax that day were Group One winners Dundeel, Green Moon, Fiorente, Happy Trails and Silent Achiever.
Unfortunately, Ferlax was injured at his next start resulting in his premature retirement and he went to stud as a lightly raced young horse, like many of the notable champion stallions over the years.
As a Classic winning three-year-old, Ferlax is the type of horse New Zealand is renowned for producing. He won from 1200m – 1600m, was at his best on good ground and he fetched $180,000 as a Karaka 2011 Select Sale yearling.
Our colt is from the winning French mare 'Registered Nurse'. It's a very successful European family with an abundance of black type feature race winners, and in fact his second and third dams are both multiple Stakes winners who in turn produced multiple stakes winners.He is everything you look for in a classic type of colt and we would love to race him with you.To express your interest please contact Steve Leoni and he will do the rest.
Take some time to watch the above video , this horse is as good a walker as you will see.
