Reliable Man X Bacio Del Vinto
2 year old Bay Colt
Sire: Reliable Man Dam: Bacio del Vinto
Rapt to have secured a lovely athletic RELIABLE MAN colt at the June Magic Millions Sale.
I was the underbidder on a Reliable Man colt in New Zealand and have been keen to get one into the stable since then. All his yearlings are good athletic types and this colt was no exception. He has length, girth and a huge walk. Like his old man, I think he will develop into a real middle distance/staying horse that we can aim at the classic races in his 3yo year.
This colt was born and raised at Westbury Stud in New Zealand (the same stud where Sequoia Lady came from). He hails from a really good family with his second dam being the champion mare LOTTERIA who was trained by Gai Waterhouse and won several Group 1 races.

He only had two starts in Australia but made a significant impact. He defeated IT'S A DUNDEEL in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick prompting Hugh Bowman to describe him as the best horse he has ever ridden. He is by champion European sire Dalakhani and comes from a family littered with Oaks and Derby winners.
For owners looking for a classic colt at an affordable price, I think we've found your boy.
