TOUGHNESS, ATHLETICISM & SOUNDNESS
When looking for a yearling there are many people out there happy to give you “advice” but how many of them have achieved the ultimate success and how many have actually risked their own?
Suman has always been prepared to invest in the industry and not just risk the resources of those who support him.
This has been well rewarded with him personally selecting and racing champion dual Group 1 winning sprinter Zoustar, Group 3 winning gallopers Humma and Trump, and Listed winner Danger Close.
Suman has also identified Ella Fire (Group 3 placed) and co-selected Petracca (Group 3 placed) for his clients finding a variety of horses successful at varying budgets and over a wide scale of distances.
Importantly, Suman has achieved this in selecting less than 20 horses in total so his strike rate in finding elite racehorses is second to none.
When assessing yearlings Suman places great importance on toughness, athleticism and soundness which is evidenced not only by his winning strike rate but also the durability of the horses he has purchased.
