During the Summer of 2021, on Micky’s strong recommendation, we decided to add this fabulously long striding son of, the up and coming, Kap Rock. Micky had had the horse around 6 months at that time and he’d shown him plenty on the gallops. So much, that Micky offered to keep a 25% share in the horse, backing the horse, not only with his time and effort, but his money too.

Kap Rock, an exciting young sire, who is a half-brother to the top-class National Hunt sire KAPGARDE. He is to become the latest French recruit to join Knockhouse Stud in Ireland.

He took a little longer to come to hand than we first thought, this NH season, but he’s in a great place now and is thriving. Very much up to at least running well in a bumper and most probably up to winning one, he will progress significantly though, with time. Still only just turned 5yo, he’s very well related, as you can see from his pedigree, his close relatives have won any number of Graded performers over hurdles and fences, including a Kempton, King George winner no less. Over obstacles rather than bumpers, is where his real future will lie.

He’s a beautiful horse, with a great stride and head carriage. Held in quite high regard at home, he’s a fabulous NH prospect for this season and, of course, beyond.

Racing Update: Always been held in some regard by Micky Hammond. The bit slipped through his mouth. On debut and he was impossible to steer. He ran really well until fading in the final 300 yards, despite having run too free and miles wider than his opponents throughout the race.  We ran him back too soon next time, in what had turned out to be a warm race. Rested up for the Summer he’s been schooling great at home and is more than ready for his hurdling debut, which we are eagerly awaiting.  Instant NH action, he’s ready to go and he’s non too expensive to get involved with. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.

Schooling:

Here's a montage video of him at home:
