Race entries

We purchased this son of DRAGON PULSE at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale. We have had some nice results with our previous Dragon Pulse progeny; Ninetythreetwenty (now racing in Hong Kong under a new name, after his owners received an offer they couldn't refuse for him!) and Ventura Dragon. We believe Dragon Pulse is underrated as a sire and his stock, through the sales' ring, represent great value; offering quality horses at value for money prices, which is something we pride ourselves on at MPR. Read about his sire here: 

We purchased Genever Dragon from Lynn Lodge Stud, who we've had great success purchasing from, most notably our Group 2 winner Donjuan Triumphant and furthermore, our 7- time winner Ventura Knight, from a very small number of horses purchased. Eddie is a fantastic judge and preps the horses so well. His horses have great minds and they're tough. 

His official racing name is GENEVER DRAGON (pronounced Gin-eve-er.) In English, genever was the early 18th century word for "gin". Genever Gin does exist today, long popular in The Netherlands and Belgium, genever — also known as geneva, genievre, jenever, Holland gin, or Dutch gin — is essentially a distilled malted spirit (something like an unaged Scotch) often blended with grain neutral spirit, then infused or further distilled with various herbs and spices, including a healthy amount of juniper, like gin. It can be clear, lightly aged, or aged in oak for several years.

Watch the race replay of his hurdle win here: 

Looks particularly well handicapped on the Flat and he should be in for a busy season, in the north and at the north west tracks, but we will keep our eyes open for suitable hurdle races too! Fresh from training a career-best haul of 155 winners in 2021-22, his trainer is in fine form. 

Racing Update: A winner over hurdles at Kelso, he has been so consistent for his owners. Since June 2022, his form figures read: 3, 2, 2, 3, 1, 2 - earning prize money and giving his syndicate some fun! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
