2yo son of NICCONI out of DOESN’T MAKE SENSE – (Street Sense)

This 2yo was passed in at the recent Inglis ready to run sales (lot 216) and was prepared for the breeze ups by horse breaker Danial Gooley who said:

“He is a big scopey boy that has a lot of quality about him. He is a very  elegant/athletic type with a lovely loose action that covers good ground. Physically the colt has good bone, plenty of scope and strength with a lovely relaxed temperament. I thought he did a great job running 10.9s on his own and he is the type of 2yo that will continue to improve as he fills out that large frame of his.”

The colt stands at 16 hands and is currently spelling and will be gelded before he commences his next preparation.

Sale x-rays: Low Risk

Scope: Clean, no issues
