Blue-Blood On Debut At Tauranga Tomorrow
A superbly bred 3YO colt will make his debut at tomorrow's Gr2 Tauranga Stakes meeting in New Zealand. Carded to jump at 11.35am AEST in a 1400m event, Imperious Prince is by Arrowfield Stud's champion sire Redoute's Choice out of the impeccably bred mare Kylie Kwong (Red Ransom), a multiple Gr1-placed full-sister to ill-fated 6-time Gr1 winner Typhoon Tracy and young stakes-winning sire Red Element. Boasting champion race mare Tracy's Element as his grandam, Imperious Prince is a full-brother to Listed winner Cantonese & Gr2-placed Chateau Margaux, and a half-brother to Gr3-placed Monteux. This is also the immediate family of Gr2 STC Silver Slipper winner & young sire Shaft, as well as Singapore Gr1-placed Eclair Fastpass. Imperious Prince was a $250,000 purchase by Rogerson Bloodstock at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale from the draft of Baramul Stud.
