Identified by Mark Walker as one of his top picks from the pre sale Breeze Up Gallops, David Ellis inspected this horse on behalf of Fortuna and gave it the thumbs up.  Click HERE to view the breeze up. The Keeper  is on the near side ( No 33). Note that this Horse will go straight to Singapore to race once he has had additional  preparation here in NZ and trialled; we anticipate a date of travel will be around mid February.

KEEPER needs no introduction as a high quality Sire, who consistently features  in the top Ten Sire list in NZ and whose progeny have had much success in Singapore and Hong Kong,  while the Dam Sire is GENERAL NEDIYM, one of Australia’s leading Sires and the Grandam Sire is none other than the mighty ZABEEL.

On arrival in Singapore this horse will be racing for S$75,000 at his first start as a Maiden horse (compared to just $7,000 in NZ). As well as that, he will be eligible to compete in the very lucrative 2yo Series events run during May, June and July. The May event carries prizemoney of S$500,000 (note that Singapore $$ and NZ $$$ are almost identical). As a 3yo from 1st August 2014, he will be eligible for two sets of 3yo Series, one series run in the Spring, the other run in the Autumn, culminating in the Singapore Guineas run in May 2015 for a Stake of S$500,000.

Initial Costs for a 10% share are $9,400, a 5% share $4700 and a 2.5% share $2350. Note initial costs include the full cost of transportation and quarantine  to Singapore plus over $9,000 of working capital and insurance coverage until 31st January 2015. Ongoing costs are $300 per month per 10% share, $150 per 5% share and $75 per month per 2.5% share commencing 1st January 2014. There are no other costs.
