VESPA (Elusive City (USA) x Miss Avalon (IRE)


The latest edition to the Group 1 stallion roster at Wellfield Lodge is Vespa, who was champion 2-year-old of his year with victories in the Gr 1 Diamond Stakes and Listed Karaka Millions.

He followed up as a three-year-old with wins in the Gr 2 Wellington Guineas, Listed Manawatu Flying Handicap and Whangarei RC Challenge Stakes, as well as running second against the older horses in the Gr 1 Easter Handicap.

As a four-year-old he was runner-up in the Gr 1 NRM Sprint before retiring to stud at Wellfield Lodge.

Vespa made an excellent start to his new career in the 2016 breeding season and his first crop of foals born in spring 2017 made a great impression with their physical presence and athleticism. Their ultimate appearance on the racetracks in the 2019 season will be eagerly awaited.
