Savvy Racing is proud to present this Tivaci x Save the Stars Gelding in association with Ballymore Stables. The Gelding will be based in Matamata and trained by Mike Moroney and Pam Gerard. The Gelding is currently being broken in and will transfer straight to the stable for his first stages of preparation.
Ballymore Stables offers a thrilling proposition to be involved in one of Australasia’s leading racehorse stables and to race exciting prospects to target classic races such as the 2yo Karaka Millions, Derby and the Guineas.
Our aim is to identify and select yearlings that will be prepared and targeted towards those classic 2 and 3 year old races. We are particularly confident that we have selected the right individuals to be serious contenders, whilst our previous results on the track only reflect this.
The Gelding was purchased from the 2021 New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sale (Book 2, Lot 640) at Karaka.
His sire Tivaci (High Chaparral) had 6 wins from 1000m to 1600m.
This Tivaci Gelding is out of the Savabeel (Zabeel) mare Save the Stars – herself a winner at 1200m and a full sister to SAVVY COUP.
This is the family of stare mare of the moment PROBABEEL, as well as Tootsie and Ocean Emperor.
Savvy Racing are again excited to have Savabeel bloodlines in our racing team and we are sure this gelding will be as successful as Tokorangi.
Selected by international bloodstock agent Paul Moroney.
