Last season, NZ – Waikato Stallion parade … stallion El Roca (Fastnet Rock by Rubimill (AUS) ex-Rubiton) had TBL’s eye.
With presence & stature, an appeal where, TBL could not quite place the hunch exactly why?
don’t ya love ya instinct….
After writing the blog on a minute but fascinating detail (should you share ideas, developing and breeding from NZ family lines), then Redzel knocks off Everest Redzel (Snitzel by Rubimill (AUS) ex-Rubiton it became apparent why El Roca could exert his influence to be New Zealand’s rocket-man stallion.
yep, Redzel’s dam Millrich and El Roca’s dam Rubimill are full sisters by Rubiton (AUS) – their dam Mill Rani (AUS).
With El Roca impressions, it was at Sunday maiden meeting where new kids (2 year olds) were kicking off racing careers and yes, into the birdcage a El Roca filly – she I thought….a few cuts above the rest, wow…admiration of length, muscle, walk, presence, stature.
We placed the bet & TBL threw the fist to the air: nice one…Bella Mente 2yr old ch. filly (El Roca (AUS) – Joiya (AUS) by Stravinsky.
