Hear what miRunners Head of Bloodstock Mick Malone thinks of this purchase

“By super sire Exceed and Excel this colts a first foal from the Sebring mare in, Heart of Oak, herself a full sister to Gr2 winner Believe Yourself, Heart Of Oak won 3 races in succession.

First laid eyes on this colt and his home at Coolmore Stud in preparation for the sale, has it all this fella, a presence that’s hard not to look at, walks like a panther, massive hip and Shoulder just oozes quality! To have an opportunity to be involved in a colt like this with a trainer like Mick Price via miRunners is a huge result.”
