Eliza Park International’s owner, Mr Ting Kong Cheng, has purchased the session topper on the second and final of the 2013 Gold Coast Horses in Training Sale, paying $220,000 for the Flying Spur colt from Rock On Bye.
Purchasing Eliza Park in June, Mr Cheng has been a highly visible presence at Australian sales this year and was clearly impressed with the quality of the Flying Spur colt who is out of a half sister to multiple stakes winner Zero Rock.
This is also the family of filly great November Rain and Group One winner Race Master while, interestingly, he is a close blood relation to Flying Spur’s Champion 2YO, San Luis.
A Champion Australian Sire with nearly 900 winners (89 at stakes level), Flying Spur is also shaping a formidable sire of sires with his sons including Magnus and Casino Prince.
