Purchased from the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale, this colt is by EXCELEBRATION and is the half-brother to Listed winner and Gr.2-placed TIME SHANAKILL
By the sire of three time Group 1 winner BARNEY ROY, out of a mare who has already produced the 113 rated TIME SHANAkILL (Lord Shanakill); this fabulous colt goes into training with the Middleham maestro, Mark Johnston and looks, every inch, a quality 2yo in the making, hopefully reminiscent of our Mark Johnston trained, Group 1 placed, Group 3 and Listed winner Marie’s Diamond.
He’s a strong, yet athletic, individual with a great walk and a super temperament on him, it would appear.
He qualifies for the Tattersalls Ireland Super Sales race, at the Curragh next September, which carries over €100,000 to the winner. His pedigree and physique would suggest he is tailor made for that race and just possibly, for some of the high class 6f races earlier in the season too. Eventually, he should stay 1 mile, and looks destined for a fabulous career, if his looks and pedigree combine on the track, as we believe they will. He looks a tough, strong sort, typical of the Mark Johnston horses you see at the races, day in day out, and these qualities are the reason we’ve placed him at the Johnston yard.
Horse and trainer, looks a perfect fit!
See his walk video in the gallery.
*There are no monthly training fees payable until March 1st 2021*
Training Update (23rd October): He is being broken in at Richie McGraths, where we send many of our yearlings. Richie says: “He is currently lunging with one and two reins, long reining, stopping and starting on command and walking through the stalls. We have started to jump up and lean over him in the stable as the next part of his education.” See the accompanying video below.
