Present Status

NZCJC purchased the 2016 TAVISTOCK/OCTAPUSSY from Cambridge Stud at the 2018 New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sales Series. At the time the colt had an extremely strong pedigree being by Tavistock from one of the best mares in the catalogue Octapussy. Since the sales, there has been a very significant update in Octapussy’s pedigree. Her filly CHARACTURE by Power has since run second in the Oaks Prelude, a Listed race, 3rd in the Lowland Stakes, a Group 3 and 4th in the NZ Oaks, a Group 1. All of this will add significantly to the colts’ value. As it can be seen from the sire and dam’s pedigree the colt should be a sprinter miler, performing at 3 years and above. This is consistent with his physical type. Currently, he is training by Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman, he is a fast learner and has fitted in well with his new life.
