Okay, we are not going to compare race records (though undoubtedly he had his share of ability) but Wolf Cry is a horse with the genetic make-up and background to make it!
And what great value he is at $4400… affording breeders a great opportunity to tap into highly desirable bloodlines. He ticks so many boxes; sire line, family, speed… and he is an outstanding type to boot.
“Everyone who sees Wolf Cry is immediately impressed,” said Larneuk Stud‘s Neville Murdoch.
“He is a particularly handsome horse with considerable presence and is the ideal VOBIS horse.”
Wolf Cry stands alongside Cluster, Honorius, Ilovethiscity and O’Lonhro.
