29/01/02 Rogerson Buys Grand Archway Colt
0104grandarchway.jpg (17371 bytes)Not surprisingly leading international trainer Graeme Rogerson, the man who put the polish of Grand Archway, has purchased her first foal, a Zabeel colt during today's second session of the New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale at Karaka.

Offered by Eric Watson's Westbury Stud, the colt was knocked down to Rogerson for $410,000.

It is believed that Rogerson will form a syndicate of stable clients to race the colt and that syndicate could possibly include Watson, the man who successfully raced Grand Archway.

r1grogerson.jpg (10201 bytes)Voted the Champion Three-Year-Old and Champion Australian Female Racehorse of 1999, Grand Archway won the Group One Oaks in both Sydney and Melbourne. She also finished runner-up to Episode in both the South Australian and Australian Oaks in Adelaide.

The bay colt was her first foal since she was retired to stud. She has another Zabeel colt at foot now and is currently in foal to the exciting shuttle stallion Elnadim.

Elnadim, a son of Danzig,stood at Westbury Stud during the most recent breeding season.

The Zabeel-Grand Archway colt is currently the sale topper during the middle stages of the second session.
