David Ellis welcomed an exciting addition to the team this week when a Tavistock yearling colt out of dual New Zealand Broodmare of the Year Bagalollies arrived at Te Akau Stud.
Ellis purchased the colt privately on behalf of Hong Kong-based Edmund Wong, who now also owns Bagalollies.
The Zabeel mare has been in headlines of late being the dam of recent Gr.1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) winner Toffee Tongue and Galleywood Hurdle (3200m) winner Gobstopper.
Bagalollies is also the dam of former Hong Kong horse of the year Werther and Group One performer Milseain.
