This smart colt is the third foal out of the 12 time race winning mare Courage On Fire NZ.
Throughout Courage On Fire NZ’s successful race career she won on twelve occasions and was placed twenty five times. Two of these were in New Zealand, before making her way to NSW, then on to trainer Debbie Padberg in Perth, where she did a fantastic job and achieved two metropolitan wins at Gloucester Park.
Courage on Fire NZ retired to stud with a career best mile rate of 1.56.2 and $102,378 in earnings.

Her first foal is current six year old El Vaquero, who finished 3rd on debut before a 5th in a city 3 year old race from just 4 starts to date.

Her second foal, Peligroso, looks to have great ability; to date he has had seventeen starts for two wins, two second and two third placings, earning over $13,000 in prizemoney PLUS WestBred and First Win Bonuses. As a 3 year old he won at Pinjarra in February this year on a wet track by 12.9 metres, and again at Bunbury in May. His trainer, Ryan Bell, has a high opinion of him and is looking to further reach his potential this summer as he heads into his four year old season.

This TrotSynd Number 20 colt has completed his first education (“breaking in”) and first training preparation in the care of trainer, Justin Prentice, and is currently in training at his Boyanup stables. The colt has a magnificent temperament and in Justin’s expert opinion, is “doing everything right” in training – his aim is to qualify to race in early 2022 and be ready to compete in the APG Sales Classic Heats, on Tuesday 8th February 2022.

WHY ownership at the trots?

Harness racing is for everyone and the trots in WA is proud to have a real family focus.

A huge benefit of standardbred ownership is the longevity of their racing career – standardbreds are strong and durable horses who can race until they are 10 or more years of age – they really do become part of the family!

There really is no greater feeling than cheering your horse to victory – it’s fast paced and full of anticipation, from the moment the mobile barrier takes off, or the barrier strands fly back!

And the best part about owning a standardbred is it can be done with family, friends, colleagues and sporting mates, all for a low-cost and an abundance of fun.

In addition to race prize money, if you own a WestBred or WestSired horse you receive even more cash bonuses!

Standardbreds are well known for their wonderful temperaments and make excellent companion, pleasure or performance horses. After your standardbred finishes their racing career, the Off The Track program supports and promotes retired standardbreds in transitioning to their second careers.
