Lucky Vega x Cardannic

An exciting prospect this colt is a strong physical, with a lovely loose moving athletic walk. He is from the first crop of G1 winning juvenile Lucky Vega who is the only son of Lope de Vega standing at stud in Australia.

Lope de Vega has not only produced sire, Lucky Vega he has also produced G1 winning Australian sprinters Gytrash, Santa Ana Lane, Vega Magic & Vega One. Lucky Vega showed his precocity as a 2YO winning on debut before finishing second at G2 level in his second appearance. He blew away his rivals in the G1 Phoenix Stakes (1200m) at his third outing, beating the smart The Lir Jet by 3.5l, also beating St Mark’s Basilica and Laws Of Indices. Consistently racing at the highest level in Europe at 3, he was second in the G1 Royal Ascot St James's Palace Stakes (1602m), third in the G1 Newmarket 2000 Guineas (1600m) and fourth in the G1 Curragh Irish 2000 Guineas (1600m).

This colt was identified and purchased by Yulong Stud as a weanling for $100,000, so to purchase him as a yearling for $100,000 we feel is great value. As a weanling he was explained as extremely well-balanced, with great strength behind and an unbelievable temperament by Sherah Sullivan of Sullivan Bloodstock. We feel he has all the makings of a lovely, durable, reliable and honest racehorse and really concur with what Sherah had to say about the colt.

He is from the three time winning Bel Esprit mare, Cardannic. A true proven producer, Cardannic has produced five foals to race, all winners including stakes placed mare, Peninsula Links. She is the dam of Clarken Racing trained, four-time winner Bray Street Boss who was a talented galloper, before injury saw his career cut short. We feel Lucky Vega is an upgrade for the mare who has done a fantastic job with what she has produced.
