LOOK TO THE SKY was purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale. This bay colt is sired by Pathfork, out of the dam Stargazer Pink (Jallad), and was bred by Highlands Stud.

Name: Look To The Sky
Sex: Bay Colt
Foaled: 08/09/2016
Sire: Pathfork
Mare: Stargazer Pink (Jallad)
Breeder: Highlands Stud
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Purchased: KZN Yearling Sale, July 2018
Pedigree: View here

Bred by Highlands Stud, he is a colt by Pathfork out of a mare called Stargazer Pink, by the highly rated damsire – Jallad.

He was one of the best looking specimens on the sale, with a “strong page” peppered with bold black type to back up his appearance.

He is from the same family that produced VILLANDRY who won the Gold Medallion (Gr1) as a 2 year old, RAVISHING – winner of the SA Derby (Gr1), DYNASTIC POWER who won the Bettingworld 1900 (Gr2) and CORAL FEVER – winner of the Champions Challenge (Gr1), to name a few.

Stable Placement:
We are particularly excited about this eye catching young colt and the syndicate looks forward to watching him mature into an exciting racehorse under the guidance of Clinton Binda.

August 26th, 2019
Look To The Sky steps out for his 7th career start this Thursday 29th August 2019. He has been showing a lot of good work at home and seems to be over the soundness issues he experienced just after his win on debut, earlier in the year. He was drawn wide in his penultimate run and definitely didn’t see out the 1300m at Hollywoodbets Greyville. His most recent effort was below his best, in a small field and he will be looking to go a lot closer today. He has a very useful galloping weight on his back, but has drawn on the wrong side of the course and will need to track towards the outside where the better going seems to be prevalent. He should be in the first 4 places, if things go his way. Final field below.
