Mick Price needs very little introduction. He is one of Australia’s top trainers and has trained numerous Group 1 winners throughout his very successful career. In more recent years, the likes of Lankan Rupee, Samaready, Tarzino, Grunt, Mighty Boss, and 2 fillies I had a hand in selecting, Secret Agenda and Seabrook, just to name a few horses from his 37 Group 1 victories.

The colt will be trained in Melbourne by one of Victoria’s leading trainers Mick Price, now in a training partnership with young gun Michael Kent Jnr. Both Mick and Michael were at the Karaka sale and inspected the colt (amongst many others), and they were both very impressed with his physique, conformation, action and temperament. Mick and Michael are strict judges when it comes to selecting horses and very few make their shortlist, so you know this colt is a top specimen when they give him the tick of approval.




TARZINO (Tavistock x Zarzino, by Zabeel – 2012) | Bay Horse | 16.2 hh (168cm) 


  • Champion 3YO Colt in Australia 2015-16 ahead of Press Statement, Japonisme, Holler and Tavago.

  • A dual Group 1 winner at three in the ATC Rosehill Guineas, defeating Beauty Generation, Jameka, and Le Romain,  and the VRC Victoria Derby, defeating Etymology, Kia Ora Koutou, Red Alto and Lizard Island.

  • Second in the VRC Australian Guineas Gr.1 over 1600m.

  • An exceptional turn of foot.

  • The only Group 1 winning entire by Champion Sire Tavistock at stud, and bred on the same cross as Werther, Hasselhoof, Pacorus and Gobstopper.

  • A pedigree free of Danehill blood.





MISS JUVENTUS by Anabaa. Winner over 2100m. She is a half-sister to the G1p Show of Force, dam of G1 winner ATOMIC FORCE. She has produced 3 foals to race for 2 dual winners and a placegetter.




I inspected a lot of Tarzino's progeny this year and I am really liking what

he is producing. I love this colt, he just looks tough! He's big & strong,

good boned, very athletic and he has a great big hind quarter on him.

He moves very well and with a lot of purpose which I love to see.


I look for pedigree, type, conformation, action, temperament and of 

course a sound and low risk horse, and this colt ticks every box.


He will be given every chance by Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr to be a

successful racehorse, with the rich Derby's and Cups our main

aspirations for him.


Mick Price in fact trained Tarzino to win the G1 Victoria Derby and the

G1 Rosehill Guineas. He knows the breed very well and believes this colt

is exactly what you want to see when looking at a Tarzino.
