Tavistock’s presence felt in Japan14 Jun 2021

The late Tavistock’s influence continues to be felt across the racetracks of Australasia and further afield, as was evident this week in Japan.

The former Cambridge Stud stallion’s son En won his sixth consecutive race at Kawasaki racetrack to take the gifted colt’s record to eight victories and a runner-up finish from his 14 appearances.

The three-year-old is raced by Big Red Farm owner Shigeyuki Okada, who went to $120,000 to secure him from the Curraghmore draft at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale at Karaka two years ago.

En was bred by Go Bloodstock New Zealand Ltd and is out of the Northern Meteor mare Tempting Delight, a half-sister to the G2 Yallambee Classic winner Champagne Harmony, who produced the recent Listed Gold Coast Bracelet winner Grace And Harmony.

It is a long and deep pedigree with Tempting Delight’s dam Hansuyen, a winning daughter of Zabeel, a sister to the multiple Group 1 winners Champagne and St Reims.
