Purchased at THE sale for 2-year-old winners, the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, this colt is by DRAGON PULSE, the highest ever rated 2 year old by Kyllachy. Standing at the Irish National Stud, read his full stallion details here: https://irishnationalstud.ie/stallion/dragon-pulse/
Here at MPR we are always looking for an edge - trying to find sire’s who produce the goods, but who are maybe off one or two agents’ radars, which can represent fantastic value for our owners. Although a very young sire, we have been very impressed by the progress of Dragon Pulse. Although not afforded hundreds of mares to cover in his first and second seasons we feel he has very much punched above his weight, siring Group winner Aethos and Legendary Lunch amongst dozens of other winners. From only his 2 crops to see the racecourse he has already produced 13 horses with a rating of 90+ and is the sire of our very own three time winning Ventura Dragon (featured in the news stories on the right). With 5 black type horses to his name too, he looks set to be a sire to be on the right side of and has had an incredible start to 2018. With over 20 wins already and only 2 months into the year, the sire looks set to have a very exciting year ahead. He has an outstanding 60% winners to runner’s ratio, making him leading sire in Europe in 2018 by percentage of winners to runners.

However, the sire is only half the story, the dam is vitally important too. Our colt hails from a family packed with Black type performers; 12 in fact. The family is strewn with Group and Listed performers in most countries around Europe. Our dam has already produced 2 winners from 2 runners, both by Big Bad Bob, (who has now moved abroad given that he wasn't really making it as a stallion in England and Ireland). Dragon Pulse is almost certainly the injection of speed that our dam requires, to turn her 80 rated winners already into a 90 or even a 100-rated performer i.e.The sort of performer to which we aspire at MPR.
He looks a sharp sort and struck us as very much a colt who would be fully effective in the first half of his 2yo career in 2018, but who will really come to his own when we get the trips of 7 furlongs plus. He has a great walk and a great attitude and his trainer, Richard Fahey was really taken with his confirmation, saying: “He looks like a classy individual and one who we can get stuck into given the substance he has.”
We were really taken with this lad at the sale and it was a match made in heaven when Richard was so sweet on him as well. He comes recommended by the North's premier trainer.
Trainer Update (20th April): Richard says he is “A lovely moving colt who is answering every question that I am asking of him.” We have had a few drying days of late and we would like to send him up the grass gallops a time or two before setting foot on a course.
We originally had a mid-season type in mind for him, but he continues to shape like he might be a bit earlier than that. Lest we forget, that Ventura Dragon* has now won over both 5 furlongs and 10 furlongs, it’s not a surprise that we keep liking this colt to him as he seems to be following in his hoofsteps.
We look forward to seeing him at our next stable visit on May 12th-do join us if you would like to see this colt.
