Long time Eliza Park client Les Colbert has raced a number of classy performers over the years and you can add his 3YO colt, Choilin to the list.
Trained by Philip Stokes, the lightly raced Choilin broke through for his first win at Morphettville on Saturday (5 December), but based on this command performance, it won’t be his last.
Choilin is by former top sprinter Choisir, from the Eire mare, Candelina and it’s hardly surprising he runs like the clappers, being line bred to Biscay through a daughter and son.
Closely related to juvenile stakes winner Queen of Angels, Choilin was part of Eliza Park’s 2008 Gold Coast Magic Millions draft, but was subsequently passed in and Les decided to race the horse himself.
If Choilin keeps running like he did at Morphettville, it might prove to be a VERY wise decision of Les’ to retain the colt.
