Suburbia is a four-year-old bay gelding by O’Reilly out of the Elusive City mare Metropolitan.

Metropolitan has had six foals to race for five winners including stakes winners Residential and Colonel Custer.

This gelding is an attractive type with great strength and athleticism.

Suburbia has had nine starts to date and has placed on four occasions competing in strong metropolitan and provincial company.

He shows a great turn of foot with the ability to race anywhere between 1200m and 2000m.

We love purchasing horses that show genuine ability yet to break their maiden. Already incoming owners can recoup $11,200 and we’d be very surprised if he didn’t break through early!

Purchased by Andrew Dale Racing at $16,500 Inc. GST.
