Tanaawol looks a colt to follow
High-priced youngster Tanaawol showed he has a bright future with a quality performance over 1400 metres at Geelong to shed his novice tag.
The Waikato Stud-bred and sold colt was on the board after displaying a sharp turn of acceleration to burst between runners in the closing 150 metres and win going away under rider Jamie Mott.
Tanaawol showed the benefit of a break following an unplaced run on debut in the autumn.
He was a $500,000 purchase out of the Matamata farm’s Book 1 draft at Karaka in 2019 by Shadwell Stud and respected international agent Hubie de Burgh.
He is a son of the O’Reilly mare Cupid, who is a half-sister to the G3 Premier’s Cup winner and G1 Queensland Oaks runner-up Another Dollar.
They are daughters of Make A Wish, whose son No Limits was bought by Te Akau chief David Ellis for $1.4 million out of Waikato Stud’s draft at Karaka in 2019.
Also on the pedigree page is the G2 Autumn Classic winner Adelaide Ace and the G3 Gloaming Stakes winner and G1 Australian Guineas runner-up Strike The Stars.
