Pierro Star

Pierro Star

Sire: Pierro

Dam: Palm Shade

Colour: Brown

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Aug 14th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

This outstanding type was on Gary's radar from the beginning and at $35,000 from the Inglis Classic Sale, he was an absolute steal!

For Gary he was physically one of the best put together types he's seen from the stallion - stunning individual that will just take a bit of time to mature and develop. He will make a really smart three-year-old at the track.
