TK SPARTAN (c Pegasus Spur – TK Rocket)
TK Spartan – this is the 2nd foal from the unraced Above the Stars mare TK Rocket (who never raced due to a leg cut injury as a 2yo). TK Rocket is a ½ sister to the very good NZ 2yo trotter of 2002 TK Victor (Gp2 2yo NZSS Trotters Final and Gp1 SA Trotters Derby) and to the dam of Sir George Grey (3rd in Gp1 3yo Jewels Ruby Trot).
This colt foal is by the very good sire Pegasus Spur who has had 80 winners from 306 live foals (26% winners to live foals) incl the very good horses Paramount Geegee, Speeding Spur and Flying Isa). He is line bred to Speedy Crown and the ½ brothers Hickory Pride and Hickory Smoke with abundant nicks of Stars Pride and Dean Hanover in his pedigree.
He is a very correct colt, very forward and intelligent and will grow into a decent sized yearling. He was passed in at $6,000 at the 2017 Australasian Yearling Sales at Karaka and we have negotiated a 50% trade deal on him and he is currently being broken in and shows promise – his major target if he is ready is the 2018 2yo Jewels Ruby Trot at Cambridge.
