"We're not usually active at the Magic Millions Adelaide Sale but this colt was a must-have for us, he ticked all the boxes on pre-sale x-ray/scope and was a real value purchase for us. We've already had several enquiries about him indicating he's going to be extremely popular amongst our client base" Jason Abrahams commented after the sale.

His striking sire Scissor Kick is a son of the legendary Redoute's Choice and is from the stallion-producing female family of Danehill’s leading European son Dansili, the sire of over 100 Stakeswinners and 19 Group 1 winners. Group 1 placed, and a two-time Group 3 winner, Scissor Kick is standing alongside some of Australia's best sires at Arrowfield Stud including Snitzel, Not A Single Doubt and of course, Redoute's Choice.
