Du Destin is a gorgeous looking 6yo purchased at the Derby Sale and is by the up and coming French sire Fuisse (few-see) out of the very special French mare Parenthese. She competed in two listed races from the five starts in her life picking up black type on both occasions and over both fences and hurdles.
Based on the opinion of Highflyers Anthony Bromley, (arguably the highest authority in French National Hunt’s bloodstock), Fuisse is "one you want to be on the right side of." This really is a through and through French pedigree, something that Mr. Henderson had done so well with; Vaniteux, Buveur D’Air, Vyta Du Roc, Simonsig and a little horse named Sprinter Sacre amongst others, all with French families and trained at Seven Barrows.
Syndicate manager update: Ran a blinder on handicap debut at Market Rasen over Christmas. He flattened 2 of the last three hurdles and came back lame. He surely would have won that day if he'd jumped any 2 of the last 3, properly. He's fine again now and is being prepped for a busy, summer campaign. Nicky is certain he'll win his fair share and given he was purchased to be and has always threatened to be better over fences, he looks set for a bright future.
