Helmet X Offshore Sham Colt '16

Helmet X Offshore Sham Colt

Sire: Helmet

Dam: Offshore Sham

Colour: Brown

Gender: Colt

Age: 1 year old

Foaled: Oct 13th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

The Helmet x Offshore Sham colt was selected from the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale for $55,000.

Gary trained the dam, Offshore Sham who was a precocious two-year-old type and currently has the half-brother Exceltic in training, who is showing plenty of potential as a two-year-old in the Group and Listed lead-up races to the Golden Slipper.

Well grown colt with a massive walk on him. Powerhouse build with a great length of hip and gaskin on him.

Gary thought he was very similar to his two-year-old half brother and felt that the colt was great value.
