Proven Thoroughbreds concluded its business in New Zealand with an attractively priced colt from the Karaka Select Yearling Sale.
The colt, lot 801, is by FASTNET ROCK’s son HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from the HIGH CHAPARRAL mare LAMINGTON COUP.
A beautiful horse with a good length of rein and strong hindquarter, this colt was an athletic individual that exhibited the physical influence of HIGH CHAPARRAL.
Further down the page there are prolific winners including stakes winners BUMP AND RUN (10 wins), RAZAMATAZ (10 wins), and DANCING DYNAMITE (7 wins), stakes placed Darci Coup (8 wins), and Prince Nimrod (7 wins).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED was a Group II winner at three, defeating subsequent Group I ATC Derby winner ETHIOPIA. He is also a brother to Group I performers SKY CUDDLE and UNDENIABLY.
