Glenlogan Park Coup 2: Haseler & Morley Comment
At a time when Australia's sprinters are the envy of the world, Glenlogan Park principal Jon Haseler expressed his delight at securing the colt who has an imposing physique: "Real Saga will fit ideally in to our stallion line-up for 2009 as he represents everything we have been targeting, and having so much success with, in recent years. A locally bred sprinter who possessed true Gr1 ability, he was the standout colt of his generation and had plenty of that all important ingredient - precocious speed." Haseler added, "I am sure that both breeders and buyers alike will find him extremely attractive and, with his outstanding credentials, he looks destined to play a significant role in the Australasian breeding industry for many years to come." Meanwhile Glenlogan Park's general manager Steve Morley (a longtime advocate of standing local sprinters) commented: "He is a magnificent individual and will develop into a very imposing horse. A big, strong colt with plenty of bone, great scope and depth he looks mature beyond his years and stands at almost 16.1 hands high. I am thrilled to be promoting a horse of his quality and credentials as he possesses everything we look for in a stallion prospect. He had a blistering turn of foot, was clearly dominant in his victories against classy opposition, he has all the strength and bone physically to leave youngsters that buyers will clamber for and he is a real athlete. This horse was the complete package and he compliments our roster of Show A Heart, Falvelon, Bradbury's Luck and Jet Spur superbly. I am sure that there will be fierce competition to gain places with him this season."
