Lot 358 brown colt Bivouac – Whitehaven (Pierro) (draft: Segenhoe Stud)

The colt has a strong influence of breed shaping stallion Danehill (Danzig), as the grand-sire of Bivouac while also represented on his dam line, plus the dam line of Whitehaven. Bivouac, by internationally acclaimed Australian Champion Sire Exceed and Excel (Danehill), was a racing colt of the highest order, Champion Male Sprinter in Australia, winning three Group One races to 1400 metres in Australia, plus a Group Two, two Group Three, competing at Group One level in 12 of 22 starts and always proving competitive. The quintessential racehorse and Champion First and Second Season Sire in Australia, dam sire Pierro only ever ran in stakes races, winning 11 of his 14 starts. 

The unbeaten Triple Crown winner as a two-year-old amassed $4.5 million, and sired over 1100 winners, 64 stakes winners including 10 Group One. The grand-dam of the colt, Pattini (High Chaparral), is a half-sister to Golden Slipper (Gr. 1, 1200m) winner Vancouver (Medaglia d’Oro). 

“Bivouac was a sensational racehorse and we’re only too pleased to have bought one of his first progeny to be offered,” said David Ellis. “He’s an exciting first season sire. “He’s a wonderful moving colt, great physique, with a loose action, terrific stride, and plenty of scope about him too. 

“He’s out of a mare by Pierro, who has the makings of a top broodmare sire, given his makeup and pedigree, and has world-class stallions High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells) and Danehill (Danzig) as his next two dam sires. “The colt is out of the famous Segenhoe Stud family, that of the great mare and fourth dam Skating (At Talaq).”
