From a strong speed family, he is the brother to black-type winners including OLYMPIC OWEN, SPEEDY SUZY, Fly Phillippa and Dame Kelly. Being by a stallion who excelled over the 1200-1600m, he should be following in his families footsteps as far as his preferred trip is concerned. A great mover, he should come to hand early.
