Ellis keeps it cool

On Sunday all the attention was on David Ellis' big spend on the Savabeel colt out of Bayrock (Fastnet Rock), but the Te Akau supremo bought another colt by the Waikato Stud-based sire on the first day and in the process reinvested into a family that has produced the goods for him once before.

Catalogued as Lot 107, the yearling was offered by Hallmark and is a son of three-time winner Cool ‘N' Sassy (Testa Rossa) - the dam of Cool Aza Beel (NZ), who Ellis bought for NZ$150,000 at the same sale in 2019. The son of Savabeel would go on to register four wins for Te Akau, including in the R. Listed Karaka Million 2YO and G1 Diamond S. and in doing so earned himself a spot on the Newhaven Stud roster.
