1103 Lot 05 - Tom Foolery

March 2011 Auction
Grey colt, 23/12/09
Gwaihir's Zodiac x Celtic Shenanigans
On account of Almec Pty Ltd

This is an eye-catching yearling colt. He is a purpose-bred performance horse being 25% Irish draught and 75% TB. He will have size and substance, good bone yet not coarse. He is well put-together and well-balanced. He already displays big, bold paces with good use of his hocks and he is very elastic. He has a very agreeable and laidback nature. 

His sire, Gwaihir’s Zodiac, was a successful eventer (Heath Ryan, Boyd Martin) until injury cut short his promising future. He is now siring talented progeny, including Haruzac (Christopher Barton), already winning at two star and about to start three star. Gwaihir’s Zodiac is by the Italian import Zadkine (Laurie Morgan 1960 team and individual gold medallist, Rome Olympics), who carries the proven jumping lines of Grey Sovereign. Gwaihir’s Zodiac’s dam is from the Agricolo line (sire of Vicki Roycroft’s Apache). 

Tom Foolery is the first foal for his dam, Celtic Shenanigan, who enjoyed dressage before showjumping with Grant Hughes. She is by well-known imported Irish draught Branigan’s Pride (Murray Lamperd). Pride was not only a successful dressage horse and showjumper, but sired international level horses in the same fields. He was selected by the South Australian police to be included in their breeding program due to his outstanding temperament and trainability.
