Kapgarde ex Polly Peachum gelding
*A Nicky Henderson '5-Star' (the top rating he gives a horse) and an Anthony Bromley of Highflyer Bloodstock '2 tick' (the highest rating he gives a horse) catalogue assessment from the Goffs Land Rover Sale.*
You’d probably struggle to find a more regally bred first foal, given the depth of genes on view in this 3yo gelding’s pedigree. Just take a look at his pedigree page (attached to this page.) It’s littered with stars; such as “The Tank” Denman, Grade 1 winner Silverburn as well as his dam: The 4-time Listed winning and Grade 1 2nd (in the OLBG Mares' Hurdle and The Cheltenham Festival,) POLLY PEACHUM, who Nicky Henderson masterminded through her Seven Barrows career.
We think we’ve struck gold with this son of the fabulous sire KAPGARDE. Read about him here: http://hetraie.com/ His large, impressive list of winning progeny includes 6 at Grade 1 level: A PLUS TARD, CLAN DES OBEAUX, FAKIR D'OUDAIRIES, FEU FOLLET, MILORD THOMAS and PRINCE ALI. So, you can imagine our delight in being able to purchase this fabulous, potentially top class horse, for Nicky to train.
This strapping gelding has size and scope as well as that hint of quality about him that endeared himself to the best in the business. “I’m delighted that we’ve got him, he looks incredibly well bought and I can’t wait to get him home and crack on with him” the Champion Trainer said, as we signed for the horse at the Goffs Land Rover Sale. The same sale where we purchased our Seven Barrows trained unbeaten Listed winning mare MARIE'S ROCK.
In keeping with all our 'store horse' purchases for Seven Barrows, he really could be anything and we’d hope to see him on the track, winning his bumper in the late Winter/early Spring of 2021. (Note that the monthly training fees don't begin until January 1st 2021 - the upfront share cost includes ALL fees until that date.)
If he possesses anything like the ability of the vast majority of his immediate gene pool, we could well be in for a stellar ride. We can’t wait to see him hit the track, come the National Hunt season.
