Native Trail

€17,500 B 2019 16.1½HH (1.66M)
Oasis Dream – Needleleaf (Observatory)
Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Kildangan Stud, Co Kildare

The best unbeaten juvenile colt not just by Oasis Dream, nor simply from the Green Desert line – but descended from Danzig. Undefeated European Champion two-year-old who went on to Classic glory. Unbeaten leader of his crop at two, like Shamardal, Pinatubo and City Of Troy – and faster in the G1 Dewhurst than them all. Also faster winning the G1 Irish 2,000 Guineas than Kingman, Churchill, Paddington – and Dubawi.
