“We bought the brother Running Tall who was supposed to come to Hong Kong but fortunately raced over here and won the Sires’,” Moore told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“He was a proper horse and this one was very similar. A very athletic, good moving horse, who looks like an early two-year-old to us.

“He ticked all the boxes and we have had a lot of luck with Stratum, who has been doing well in Hong Kong.
