(Stable Spotlight) Under The Radar  Stallions We Love

Come sale time we love hunting for progeny by young stallions who we've had successful exposure to, as often we don't have to pay up for the level of confidence we have in the individual before us. It is the benefit we have with our scale which in a way, helps us beat the market while at the same time creating value for our owners.

Zoustar is a stallion we caught on too early and we have had six Stakes winners by him in the last two seasons as an example - North Star Lass, Platinum Jubilee, Zia, Zoumon, and highly promising 2YOs, Espionage and Clean Energy.

Currently there are three stallions who we have more than our fair share of exposure and success with, and hence we have targeted their yearlings this year providing they stack up on type to meet our expectations. We can then go in to bid with confidence knowing:

  1. a) the ones we have seen previously by this stallion, that look like this, can gallop
  2. b) the stock of this stallion clearly appreciate our Tulloch Lodge training & education system


Please don't tell anyone, but three stallions we feel the general market has not discovered yet are:


  • 2024 - we secured 7 yearlings for the stable at an average of $241,000
  • Success: we have trained three of Maurice's 9 Australian Stakes winners including Kibou, Ganbare and Azula


  • 2024 - we secured 5 yearlings for the stable at an average of $160,000
  • Success: we have trained four of his 11 Stakes winners including Red Resistance, Rise Of The Masses, The Instructor and Russian Roni. 


  • 2024 - we secured 5 yearlings for the stable at an average of $150,000
Success: we have trained 2 of Written By's 3 Stakes winners to date including Straight Charge and The Novelist.

Russian Revolution x Miss Aubrey Colt:

Purchase Price: $150,000 Magic Millions 2024

Shares Available: Yes

Colours Available: No

At Magic Millions January we secured a Russian Revolution colt out of Miss Aubrey for $150,000 based on the thinking we have outlined above. His shape, size and action is exactly what we saw with the other 4 Stakes winning colts by Russian Revolution in our stable, he looked a very likely type and now he is doing 'likely' things.

  • Check out his sale page and pedigree here.
  • Watch his latest video update here.

Having been bought so early this colt is a long way through his education and is currently in the stable in his second preparation and is really impressing Adrian, Gai and those that ride him.

His pedigree is a proven getter of fast horses, with his grand-dam a full sister to Court Command, and he is a very interesting mirroring of great speed influences Nureyev and Danehill 4x4 in his bloodline grid.

Based on his price and what we have seen so far, we think this colt is outstanding value, so Gai, Adrian, Claudia and Bruce jumped on a video together to tell you more:

Bring on the Magic Millions we say!

Happy Racing,

Gai & Adrian
