Shanghi Sheffield is a 2yo by Fake Left, sire of champion pacer Fake Left and from the winner and now producing Armbro Operative mare Champagnesheffield. The family has been a constant producer of winners, many at the top level and this colt in particular has a stamp of quality about him.
He was our pick of the colts at the 2011 APG Select Sale. Shanghi has the balance to be a 2yo, however he will take time and look an ideal Derby type that will blossom later in his career, much like Blacks A Fake.
Watch Shanghi Sheffield work with trainer Joe Thompson taking the reins.
This colt is eligible for the Vicbred Program and the Australasian Breeders Crown.
One of the main benefits of the Vicbred Program is the Vicbred Win Bonus. This is a $5,000 bonus paid for her first win in Victoria as a 2yo or 3yo.
Joe Thompson has always trained a small by select team at Charlton. His patience as a farmer has seem him collate a very impressive strike rate and it is on of the major factors in selecting him to train this Fake Left colt. Joe made his name with the NSW Derby and Fremantle Pacing Cup winner Imprimartur, recently he has put the polish on the brothers Dick Swiveller and Comedy Of Eros. Other nice horses to pass through his barn have have Future Assets and Casa Rena
