Just noted a interesting name registered in New Zealand yesterday and would like to find out more. Red Rose Warrior 2012 gelding by War Chant out of Rose Red.
He is registered in America as Red Napoleon and bred by Cali Holan and he appears to be unraced. He did not come to New Zealand via Hong Kong (first place I looked) so wondering where he has been the past 4-5 years?
