Reliable Man is a dual hemisphere Group 1 winning son of DALAKHANI and an international superstar competing in 10 Group 1 races from just 14 career starts. This gelding is a lovely, progressive type. We always knew he would need a bit of time to mature & that is exactly what he has done. Look out for this guy in the big staying races come Autumn and Spring 2019.
