A talented son of Savabeel, Prise De Fer came of age in the 2019/20 season.

Patience with the horse delivered the rewards to his owners as he strung four wins together from October 2019 through to his $100,000 Group 2 Rich Hill Mile win on New Year’s Day 2020.

Sent out the favourite, he claimed victory easily in the hands of Australian-based Kiwi rider Michael Dee.

The class act then continued on his winning way notching up his fifth consecutive victory when claiming the $80,000 Group 3 Taranaki Cup over 1800m – again with stable rider Opie Bosson in the saddle – on 1 February 2020.

Stepping up to elite company for the first time on 22 February 2020, Prise De Fer in the hands of Johnathan Parkes was a gallant runner up to stable mate Avantage in the $200,000 Group 1 Haunui Farm WFA Classic over 1600m.

The new 2020/21 season arrived and included:

Fresh up third place – $100,000 Group 2 Valachi Downs Foxbridge Plate 1200m at Te Rapa for Opie Bosson in September 2020
Runner up – $70,000 Group 3 J Swap Sprint 1400m at Te Rapa with Opie Bosson in December 2020
Runner up – $100,000 Group 2 City Of Palmerston North Awapuni Gold Cup 2000m in April 2021 for Opie Bosson at Awapuni
Third place – $110,000 Valachi Downs Foxbridge Plate at Te Rapa in September 2021 for Troy Harris
Runner up – $220,000 Group 1 Windsor Park Plate 1600m at Hastings for Troy Harris
Third place – $250,000 Group 1 Livamol Classic WFA 2040m at Hastings for Troy Harris to stablemate Savy Yong Blonk

Purchased by David Ellis from the Karaka Premier Sale for $100,000, Prise De Fer is raced by the Te Akau En Garde Syndicate (Mgr: Karyn Fenton-Ellis MNZM).

He has raced 26 times for seven wins and 14 placings, with stakes’ earnings of $389,075.
