Break the Vault

break the vault


EVERY raceday success has its genesis in the breeding barn.
It's here the blood is blended, genes forged and the champions created.
There's a true adage in breeding about mating the best to the best and hoping for the best and Break The Vault is poised to deliver his part of the intrinsic element needed to solve that lifelong puzzle.

A robust and handsome individual by Danehill's champion son Redoute's Choice, which swept all before him on the track and is generating even greater results in the stallion barn, and Nureyev's champion daughter Lady Giselle, Break The Vault has one of the best sire pedigrees available in Australasia.

Break The Vault, too, has the ability to mirror his blueblood, proven by an unbroken sequence of race wins at his first four career starts.
Injury prevented Break The Vault from scaling the lofty heights expected of him, though former trainer John Hawkes insists he was a champion in the making courtesy of his blinding acceleration, courage and purpose.
Like his famous half-brother Zabeel, Break The Vault is destined to produce a lengthy line of tomorrow's racing stars.
