Tears Of Argentina/Reward For Effort 17

Sire: Reward For Effort

Dam: Tears Of Argentina

Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 yo

Foaled: Oct 09, 2017


Horse Description:

He's an absolute belter, a bit more forward then the filly and my current 2yo that I've got. He's definitely a dude, got a cheeky attitude and was always looking for work and to do things at the sale. Just coped with everything under pressure. A real man's horse - just look at his quality in the photo below! I'm sure he will be paying for himself and will be a racehorse on the track. Couldn't be more pleased to get another in my stable. A colt in the making.

Price: Purchased for just 20k!!!

I know the breed extremely well where the stallion has very much had limited opportunities throughout his career. The two I've had/got are absolute jets!

Reward For Effort only competed in Stakes races during his 10 race career, which started in brilliant fashion with a win at 2 on debut in the MRC Blue Diamond Preview L (1000m). He then followed up with a decisive win in the MRC Blue Diamond Gr1 (1200m), defeating subsequent Gr 1 winners Starspangledbanner and Rostova. He was a undefeated weight for age winner at 3 to top off his career. From a family that is full of two-year-old speed including Overreach, also a Gr 1 winner at 2 of the Golden Slipper in which Reward For Effort is a three quarter brother to. In 2017, he has covered one of he?s largest book ever with 202 mares off the back of Ability (Gr 3 winner), Gold Symphony (duel Gr3 winner), Take Pride (Gr3 winner), Dalradian (Inglis Banner winner), Brugal Reward (Gr 3 winner) and Desert Lashes (Listed winner).


Price: $20K - The last horse to join the stable from the 2019 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale
