Description


We have a real soft spot for Archytas (JET SPUR x Quality Appeal), who we purchased at the 2013 QTIS yearling sale in a joint venture with Gollan Racing. “He was physically impressive and we were always confident he would develop into a nice horse – he was correct in every way”, Paul recalls. “He had a well-muscled hind-quarter, shoulder and forearm, and a deep chest. Great balance and a smooth walk. We rated him as the top pick of our shortlisted horses at the sale, and were rapt to buy him for a good price”.

This colt’s continued to develop physically since we bought him. He also has a remarkably relaxed demeanour, which is half the battle with racehorses. If he’s an old soul, as the saying goes, we hope he learned something in a previous racing life!

There’s a lot to like about the breeding of this colt, and his Queensland connection was particularly attractive to us. JET SPUR is a successful Queensland stallion, and this colt is eligible for QTIS bonus prize money. He is also the first foal from Quality Appeal, who was an $110,000 mare from an attractive family of high-performing horses including SO YOU THINK. Glenlogan Park stud manager Steve Morley said that this colt is “one of the best ‘first foals” I have seen in a long time”.

Archytas is owned by more than half a dozen excited new owners who have never had shares in a racehorse before, as well as some existing owners who also have shares in our filly Epsilon.
