In one sense, Nonda Redford is one of the most exciting young stallion prospects to be announced in Australia for a long time. He represents a new outcross for the breed, a unique combination of the best genetics of two very different breeds. His dam Let’s Talk Later was a champion campdrafter and Warwick Gold Cup winner, while his sire Semipalitinsk was a champion and enormously respected Australian thoroughbred sire. Nonda Redford is a well conformed chestnut colt standing 15 hands.
He has a good intelligent head and a large kind eye with a strong masculine jowl, a wide generous muzzle and a neat shallow mouth. He has a nice well-balanced rein, a good wither, a sweet sloping shoulder and a particularly strong deep hindquarter. He is especially powerful through the loin and back, and he drives his hind feet deeply underneath him when he walks. His legs are clean and correct with good strong functional bone. He has particularly big, strong feet. He is a kind, relaxed colt with an easygoing manner. He is good to work with and has a genuine liking and respect for people.
