We were so impressed by how this colt thrived during his sales prep, he clearly loves his work. I’ve only heard good things about the Vancouvers too.
Steve O'Dea


A strong and scopey colt who has handled the work load during his breaking in with ease. In a short time he has shown us, he is very willing with a good length of stride and covers the ground well. With further education to build his confidence, he will be an awesome one to watch.
Peter McMahon

Horse breaker, Kolora Lodge

Key factors

  • ¾ relation ALEGRIA was raced by Godolphin and performed at stakes level from 1500m up to 2600m
  • VANCOUVER has made a promising start to his stud career with a trio of stakes placegetters & is expected to flourish when his first 3yos step out.
  • VANCOUVER’s first crop was highly popular last year, averaging $190k across all sales. $110k for this colt = value
