Val De Travers was on our shortlist going into the Tattersalls 2021 October sales. At times when you see a horse in person, you just have to try and secure it, this was one of those occasions. The hammer fell our way for 24,000gns.
Val De Travers is a stunning looking horse, big for a sprinter and needs time to fill his frame. He moves beautifully and is a classy individual by Group winning sprinter Swiss Spirit.
Previous form suggests the penny is just starting to drop, we think he's the type that will keep improving due to his size and breeding.
Val De Travers will be trained by Mick Appleby.
