Go Colour My World (NZ) (Art Major) declared himself as a horse with a massive future with his brilliant front-running victory in the A$31,000 Listed Paleface Adios Classic (1660m) at Albion Park on Saturday night.

The NZB Standardbred graduate packed plenty of punch when leading throughout to win the two-year-old feature at stakes level.

Go Colour My World was purchased for $58,000 by Cran and Chrissie Dalgety’s Kentuckiana Lodge when he was offered among the Studholme Bloodstock draft at the 2022 National Yearling Sale in Christchurch.

The Dalgetys secured the blueblood pacer on behalf of Queensland owner Terry Flynn.

Flynn placed Go Colour My World with trainer Wayne Graham where the horse has progressed to the status of stakes winner in just his fourth start.

Go Colour My World came into Saturday night’s feature after delivering a crushing win in his previous start, working hard to lead before powering away from his rivals to make it two wins from just three starts.

The two-year-old made it three-from-four when driver Shane Graham used the same front-running tactics in the Paleface Adios Classic.

Go Colour My World reeled off sharp sectionals to hold off his challengers and win Saturday night’s feature in an impressive display.

The pacer is from the outstanding family of champion former race mare and filly Under Cover Lover (NZ) (In The Pocket).

Go Colour My World is from Odds And Ends (NZ) (Mach Three), a half-sister to another New Zealand bred to star in Australia in the Group One winner Major Trojan (NZ) (Art Major).

The two-year-old was one of five New Zealand breds to win at the key lead up meeting to the first night of racing of the Constellations Carnival at Albion Park, this weekend.

Among those to show they are on track for Queensland’s upcoming Group One features was NZB Standardbred graduate Cantfindabettorman (NZ) (Sweet Lou), who overcame a tricky draw to produce an impressive win.
