Purchased at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses-In-Training sale, this gelding is by Zoffany. Read more about his sire here: https://coolmore.com/stallions/zoffany
He joins the stable of DAVID O'MEARA, who has done wonders with our own Waarif.
Blonde Warrior arrives at team MPR and David O’Meara on the back of three runs in excess of 90 in his career. A son of Zoffany out of a mare who is well capable of producing Group performers, we feel that his pedigree suggests he could well be the sort of individual who will progress steadily and he matures physically. There’s a general modus operandi in racing that you race your yearling purchase as a 2yo and a 3yo and then move he or she on. At MPR, as a general rule of thumb, we operate in the same vein. However, just on occasions, horses can mature later than others, and be sold with plenty of inherent potential.
Blonde Warrior, remains lightly raced and we believe that maturity and a change of scenery could eke out a little improvement, given, as the old adages go, “a change is as good as a rest” and “variety is the spice of life.” David just has a slightly different way of doing things, compared to 99% of other trainers, and we’re hoping to tap into his fabulous expertise, to maximise this horse’s performances for 2020 and 2021.
