Astern x Quipster


Trainer: Shane Nichols (Mornington)

This speed machine is by Darley's first-season stallion Astern. Astern was himself a winner of over $1 million in prize money and won the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400) to be one of the top colts of his generation. He is also a half-sister to recently retired Godolphin star-mare Alizee.

This colt to be trained by dual Group 1-winning trainer Shane Nichols is out of the Snippets mare, Quipster, who won over 1200m herself. That is speed, speed and more speed. Still need more proof of how fast this family is? Quipster five winner's that have won races from 800m to 1200m including the Listed winning Everage, who was also placed in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes against the best.

"In my opinion this colt will be my most precocious two-year-old and at this stage I plan to have him ready for the early two-year-old races," said Shane Nichols.

"I strongly suggest at this price, this colt is a "must buy". He is finished breaking and can be viewed at any time."
