Lot 35A 2020 COLT OUT OF ANNAS INNOCENT owned by Tim Neven Prepared by Ben Stud Standardbreds

Tim Neven is offering a half-brother to Rock Of Delight as Lot 35A in Sydney and importantly for prospective purchasers this colt is by Somebeachsomewhere.
The dam of Lot 35A is the Bettors Delight mare Annas Innocent p,3,1:57.2 which is half-sister to the unraced Art Major mare Without Guile.
So what you may say – Without Guile produced Saturday night’s Group One winner Bondi Lockdown p,1:51.6 $287,020 which won the $100,000 Bonanza at Melton downing Beyond Delight and Kimble.
Bondi Lockdown is now the early favourite for the $250,000 Chariots Of Fire on February 19th at Menangle.
The kicker is – Bondi Lockdown is by Somebeachsomewhere which makes Lot 35A even more interesting than perhaps may have been the case.
So head to Menangle on February 19th to watch Bondi Lockdown take on the country’s best 4yos and then head to Nutrien’s Sydney Yearling Sale and check out Lot 35A.
