"He (Contenda) certainly has got the ability to go as far as he needs to go for 4 Star and beyond, he has super super jumping ability, he is great on the flat and he appears to gallop great,he just gallops and jumps and doesn't get tired near the end of the course" Shane Rose - Olympic Silver and Bronze Medallist
