Horse Description:

AMERICAIN was a high class stayer blitzing the 2010 MELB CUP by almost 3 lengths even leaving the great SO YOU THINK in his wake. He won 11 races from 1400m-3200m netting $5.9m.

AMERICAIN’s first crop contained some impressive types none more so than the striking colt from STRAVINSKY mare (LANKAN RUPEE, MOSHEEN, TAVAGO, etc) Northeast Note, a member of the hallowed EIGHT CARAT family. Only the third foal of the dam who’s already thrown a winner by stud failure KAPHERO, this fella is a very attractive individual with a lovely head & eye (see attached snap). Having broken in beautifully he is currently in pre-training at Cobbitty Lodge prior to joining the JOHN THOMPSON stable at Randwick.

JOHN’s credentials as a trainer of stayers (won the GROUP 1 METROPOLITAN recently) and a man are summed up superbly in this piece…click here

For a video and John's view from the sales, please see play the below:

See and hear more of John’s view of the horse on this video shot in JAN….note how he’s developed.

This colt has a great temperament and has done everything right to date. Pedigree below, vet cert and snap attached....If you have any interest in a share in this colt or would like to discuss him please contact or 0418 281447
