Name: MUSTER UP
Sex: Chestnut Colt
Mare: Mocha Java (National Assembly)
Breeder: Maine Chance Farms (Pty) Ltd
Trainer: Brett Crawford
Purchased: National Yearling Sale, April 2018
Pedigree: View here
Muster Up is a Silvano colt out the black type winning mare, Mocha Java.
He is incidentally quite closely related to another Hollywood filly, Mocha Rose (Duncan Howells) who will be having her first outing on Saturday 23 June.
He is not the biggest colt, yet he is very well proportioned with a lot of substance to him.
My initial impression is that he looked like a 1000m – 1400m horse, but his pedigree would indicate a 1600m – 2000m horse.
Another fine moving individual with a quality presence about him.
He comes from the same family that produced the likes of Hunting Tower and Mochachino.
Once he has been broken in by Jane Thomas and her team, he will be on his way to be conditioned by top class trainer Brett Crawford.
Jane has been pleased with his progress thus far and he has settled down well and has a great temperament.
Updates – Muster Up:
4th December, 2018
He is still growing and will take some time, as Silvano’s generally do. However, he is starting to look like a smart little colt and he is taking every challenge he faces in his stride. The image of him below was taken this morning.
7th September 2018
He has done very well over the winter and he goes about his business like he has done this in a previous life time. He has a great temperament and seems to take everything in his stride. Not a big horse, but he is a strong racy colt and having almost completed the first phase of preparation for the race track he will soon be on his way to Cape Town to join up with Brett Crawford.
