I can understand for behaviour and future racing prospects that he has to gelded ....but what does it say about the G1 NZ Derby (a "classic") ,that the winner has not been offered a stud deal and is to be gelded to continue racing.....

Sadly a damn good question!

Not surprising really even Epsom Derby winners struggle to be commercial stallion prospects unless they have been top 2yo’s or have won G1 miles.

The fact that Crown Prosecuter paid over $100 in winning the derby should tell you enough about his 3yo form.

Expect his temperament as a colt was the main issue.
