Strategic Maneuver (AUS) Chestnut, Entire, 2005
Son of European Champion 3YO Miler - " The Fastest Colt I have trained since DANCE HERO & SEBRING " said Gai Waterhouse.
STRATEGIC MANEUVER is a very exciting Stallion prospect. "His trial wins in Sydney have been nothing short of brilliant - He is a Stakes horse in the making, I have no doubts about that" quotes Gai Waterhouse.
Sustaining the painful condition of quarter cracks in his front feet and subsequently breaking a pedal bone, this big, strong and one of nicest looking horses to see, was so sadly retired.
Like popular Victorian Stallion BEL ESPRIT, sire of super star BLACK CAVIAR, Strategic Maneuver is a son of European Champion 3YO miler ROYAL ACADEMY. Considered by many experts a perfect thoroughbred specimen, the now retired son of NIJINSKY 11, was one of the great shuttle success stories.
Hailing from a strong black type family, STRATEGIC MANEUVER is out of the MARSCAY ( dam sire of 78 Stakes winners) mare CRYSTAL GAUNTLET - half sister to the tough Listed Proud Player and to the dams of the Stakes winners POOR JUDGE and ROYAL COURTSHIP, both sons of ROYAL ACADEMY.
Further back in the family, is the great Brood mare TWIGLET, Gr2 winning dam of big race winners FAIRY KING PRAWN and EASY ROCKING.
Bullarook's Park principal, Malcolm Boyd states " He has great length, good bone, a lovely head and has covered over 200 mares in his first 2 seasons, and his service fee has remained from 2012, so affordable for mare owners.
