Purchased at the Arqana Yearling Sale, this colt is by INTELLO. He is 'French Owner Premiums' qualified. Read about his sire here:

Since sending our first yearling to Mark Johnston just 3 years ago, Ventura Knight, we’ve experienced nothing but success, with Ventura Knight winning 7 races and being rated a career high of 104. On the back of that, we sent Mark the subsequent Listed, Group 3 winning and Group 2 placed Marie’s Diamond. In fact, every horse we have had race with Mark has been a winner and we see no reason why anything should change with this year’s Mark Johnston yearling cohort!

We like to think we have an eye for a nice horse; a horse who is very well put together and who moves well too. Furthermore, we like to think that rather than accept the widely held beliefs in racing, which contribute to "fashion," that we are able to think outside the box a little too and in the case of the sire Intello, we believe there is something of a dynasty starting to appear, Our initial observations, being prompted by our own 4yo son of Intello, Lexington Empire who is now the winner of five races and rated 92 no less, having being purchased rather inexpensively as a yearling for 20,000gns. Our observations have led us to discover that Intello, as a stallion, is well ahead of where he should be at this point in his career. Initially standing at Cheveley Park Stud before moving to Haras Du Quesnay, he has swiftly been recalled to Cheveley’s main roster, given the fantastic start his runners have had, from a relatively modest covering fee. His eldest runners are now 4yo’s, yet he's already sired the classic placed Group 1 winner INTELLOGENT in France and the Chester Vase winning, classic runner, YOUNG RASCAL in The Epsom Derby. He has a very healthy 8% black type horses to runners percentage, a 31% European winners to runners in stakes races and an 11% winners to runners percentage in Worldwide Group 1 races at the time of writing. We're pretty convinced he's a really promising young stallion, destined for great things. 

It should come as little surprise maybe that he's on his way to such prowess, given he's a son of the mighty Galileo, out of a Danehill mare, bred by the awesome Wertheimer et Frère breeding dynasty in France, breeders of Goldikova etc. no less.

To be able to be part of Intello's journey, initially with our inexpensively purchased Lexington Empire, followed by our hugely promising 2yo Mensen Ernst and now this fabulously bred colt, is quite a privilege for us at MPR. The mare of our colt is non to shabby either, she's already produced the 98 rated Heliostatic filly ELLA DIVA. There's quite a healthy chance that we've got a really talented individual on our hands here, in the shape of this outstanding son of Intello. He's a smashing individual, he's got some size about him, but not too much. He possesses a lovely balance to his movement and he carries himself well and in a super, fluent manner. He looks to be a really super package that will afford us great opportunities, going forward. He's not going to a March or April debutant in 2020, he's the sort of horse who could come to hand in time for Royal Ascot and The Chesham Stakes (for which he qualifies) but we'll more likely see him debut around June or July time. He’s sure to progress with time and could easily make up into a thoroughly progressive 3yo for Mark too, in addition to his 2yo career haul.

It's anyone's guess how good he could be, however we'd doubt that neither this fellow's sire nor dam would get in his way of being a top class prospect. He's exciting us, rest assured!

Please see his walk and profile video in the Gallery.

Progress report (28th September): This colt is doing really well in his pre training. He is trotting/hacking up the three furlongs on Middleham Moor or spending time in the arena doing some basic flat work and also walking through the stalls daily. Please see the accompanying videos shown in the gallery. 

Appointment to view available: If you are interested in taking a share in this colt, we can arrange a viewing for you with. Please email if this is something you would like to do.
