Ego joined the Haunui Farm stallion roster in October 2012. Standing at Haunui Farm on behalf of his owners, Daniel and Elias Nakhle, Ego stands for free – yes, no service fee is payable!

The fastest son of the fastest son of the great Mr Prospector in E Dubai, Ego is out of the Redoute’s Choice mare Buckling who has so far left four foals to race including Ego and a further two stakes performers.

“A graded stakes winning sprinter by Mr. Prospector’s brilliant son, E Dubai. His dam, by the mighty Redoute’s Choice, is from the Denise’s Joy family that has produced such champions as Thorn Park, Joie Denise, Tuesday Joy, Sunday Joy, More Joyous and Bentley Biscuit… a product of the Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer cross, as are such world-class sires as Kingmambo, Distorted Humor, Empire Maker and Speightstown.”

The winner of one of the strongest fields assembled for the G2 Concorde Handicap at Ellerslie, Ego beat no less than nine other stakes winners (three G1 winners, one G2 winner, two G3 winners and three listed winners) in a field of 12.

One of the quickest horses to get into stride in the country, no matter what the barrier, Ego led in most of his races and loved good tracks running just outside the course record at Matamata in 1.08.62 from the front.

Ego underwent emergency colic surgery as a 2YO and this undoubtedly had a lasting effect on him during his racing career. Hailing from the great Denise’s Joy family and with the likes of Thorn Park featuring in his pedigree, Ego provides a great opportunity for small breeders to access a successful sireline for no service fee.
