‘Alfie’ is by Americain out of Gilded Minstrel. He had six starts early 2019 and then was retired for being too slow. I purchased him through Nikki Cook at Shory Park late 2019. His currently competing at 80cm.
“I have judged on potential. Some were definitely better produced than others but at only 4 years old I was looking for potential to develop with time.
The overall winner to me was the complete package. Athletic, forward going with nice paces, a jump with scope and the quality to gallop”
5 YO National Champion
Horse: Cil Dara Dexter
Rider: Madeline Wilson
Cil Dara Dexter was purchased from the English’s (Cil Dara Stud) at Biddaddaba in Queensland. He has done two 1*s, placing 3rd at Tamworth in March.
Breeding: Sired by Diarado out of Cil Dara Carolina who is by Cooperit.
This is clearly a stand out horse that could win a 5yo young horse class anywhere in the world. It. would be nice to know if it has blood in its breeding to complete the package.

Lovely type with a stand out jump. The trot is less established but showed the potential to improve.
