Musselburgh-The Scottish Sprint Cup
(Class 2 Handicap)
An impressive 4 length winner at York last July, we purchased this son of Bahamian Bounty to remain in training with Roger Fell.
We couldn't fail but be impressed by the scintillating performance. He totally dominated the 0-95 5f handicap and its protagonists. There's no knowing where improving sprinters end up, very often it's as a Group performer. Don't take our word for it however, Timeform awarded him a 103 for that run and the Racing Post were very impressed too: "Made most, clear well over 1f out, ridden and kept on strongly final furlong."
He looks perfect for races like the Epsom Dash on Derby Day and all the big Ascot 5f handicap sprints, the Gosforth Park Cup etc; and it's just possible, given his recent rate of progress, that all sorts on Group races, here and abroad, could be on his agenda too. He reminds us very much of our own CAPTAIN DUNNE, who improved at around the same time of his career. He was a stalwart in all the top handicaps and Group races, running in the Nunthorpe and Abbaye no less.
Harome is a half brother to the very progressive and very talented RIVER BOYNE, a shrewd 70,000gns purchase, by Red Baron's Barn at the recent Tattersalls HIT sale. He's a subsequent Listed winner and Graded performer and winner of over £160,000 in prize money.
Syndicate Manager Update: He is a high class, improving, Sprint handicapper. There's plenty more to come and could easily be seen winning on the big stage this summer, at places like York and Epsom. High class entertainment in store for his owners this season...
