Here’s the main reasons why Rubick x Slainte – to be trained by Bjorn Baker – was a purchase we’re excited about.
The sire, Rubick
Rubick was widely touted as being the highest rated two-year-old of his generation. As the most precocious son of Encosta de Lago, Rubick was a brilliant weight-for-age winning sprinter as a 3-year-old.
A brilliant weight-for-age winning sprinter as a three-year-old and rated equal at 3 to another star-son of Encosta de Lago, Northern Meteor. His dam is a Group winning three-parts sister to champion sire Redoute’s Choice
Rubick’s trainer, Gerald Ryan, regarded Rubick as a ‘superstar’, and knew he had something special in which to work with, which shares a startling resemblance to Bjorn Baker’s first impressions of Rubick’s daughter, the beautiful filly, Rubick x Slainte.
