BLOW ME DOWN was purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale. This bay colt is sired by Toreador, out of the dam She-var (Var), and was bred by Bush Hill Stud.

Name: Blow Me Down
Sex: Bay Colt
Foaled: 22/09/2016
Sire: Toreador
Mare: She-var (Var)
Breeder: Bush Hill Stud
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Purchased: KZN Yearling Sale, July 2018
Pedigree: View here

Bred by the KZN based Bush Hill Stud, he is colt by Toreodor, out of a Var mare called She-Var.

He is a nice strong colt with scope – from the same family that has produced PIRATES GOLD who won the Kings Cup Gr3, CAPTAIN AMERICA (a multiple Gr1 winner) and AQUITAINE who won the Jacaranda Handicap Gr3.

He is a great mover who should get any trip between 1400m and 2000m.

Stable Placement:
This wonderfully tempered horse will now be broken in on Clinton Binda’s private establishment while he matures into an exciting thoroughbred.
