Well Memphis is a lovely colt to work with. He does everything you want him to and is an impressive, loose limbed lad when he is out working. He is very long in the barrel (as you can see from his photo) and is 14.2 ½ hands tall – bear in mind he is a late November foal – so should grow to an ideal size.
It is worth noting that the best colt and filly sired by Santanna Blue Chip in North America are both products of Cam Fella line mares, just like this Lot 122.
Santanna Blue Chip was the richest two year old colt of his year in North America – a year that included Somebeachsomewhere, Shadow Play and Art Official – so that tells you something about his gait, manners and natural ability.
Of course last season he sired the WA Derby winner Three Blind Mice 1:56.7 and just recently (4th Feb) he sired a very impressive debut two year old winner in Victoria in Wotchawaitingfor 1:59.2.
Sometimes good things come to those that wait – this boy could be a real good thing.
