Our Giant/Rocket Man Half-Brother Scores In Singapore
In Singapore 2YO colt Ramjet (More Than Ready-Macrosa, by McGinty) won over 1400m for trainer Patrick Shaw. A half-brother to fellow Magic Millions graduates, Singapore boom sprinter Rocket Man & recent South African Gr1 Merchants winner Our Giant, Ramjet was a $110,000 2YO at the 2008 Magic Millions Queensland Horses In Training Sale. Purchased by Andy Williams of World Wide Bloodstock, he is trained by Rocket Man's trainer Patrick Shaw, who commented: "Being a (half) brother of Rocket Man I suppose you have to live up to the expectation. When he goes over a bit more ground I will be more confident. And he's still a baby." Connections will need to decide whether or not to geld Ramjet who Shaw describes as "getting a bit heavy."
