He'll be named after the winner of a big race that's being run later today. But he's by my old stalwart from before all the updates Twentynine Palms and his dam is a cross between some of my other old favourites.
I can't wait to see how your Alligator Blood does!
I think that was one of the best races I have seen for a bit! I absolutely adore RL Alligator Blood - he's home track is right down the road from me so I have followed him for a while now. Catalyst is going to be one very serious horse as well.
CE: Catalyst just absolutely blew all other NZ 3yos out of the water. He HAD to go to Australia, there was just nothing for him here. Why run for peanuts in crappy NZ races when he can go for riches in Aussie? And what a match race that was. The next time they meet it'll be all about tactics because they're just too similar to dominate one another.
To be honest I had only heard Catalyst's name a few times before today, I had not idea how talented he was. I 100% agree with you, it will be tactics that seperate these two. I cannot wait to some of Australia's other good 3yos measure up to Alligator Blood and Catalyst.
