We could easily be looking at one of the best examples of “value for money”, of the whole Breeze Ups’ season, with this beast of a son of 2022 first season sire sensation; Havana Grey He is on course to be the most prolific first season sire in history. 

Here we have a gorgeous, loose moving and very strong individual. He started his breeze off too keen unfortunately and his rider wasn’t able to ‘go after’ him and ask him to go about his business until he finally switched off after the first furlong and a bit. It took a further few strides to transition from slow down mode, to let’s go mode, so we only really saw the best of him at that point. He flew past the post and into the final gallop out area where he was one of the fastest timers.

Watch his breeze here:

We’ve found that Marco is so very adept at thinking outside the box, at the breeze ups, using his expert horsemanship, in sourcing horses that wouldn’t necessarily be on everyone’s radar, ie ones that don’t appear on the obvious fast timing horse lists that the majority of breeze up consignors and would be purchasers seem to be slaves to, these days. Such an approach from Marco, landed us the Group performer Dark Acclaim (4th for us in the Italian Derby, before being sold on for £300,000) at this very sale, for £45,000. Hopefully history is about to repeat itself.

Out of an Elnadim (July Cup winning) mare, he has the size and scope to develop into a useful 3yo sprinter, with his physique being an advantage, long term, rather than a disadvantage.

Training Update: Back in fast work now and will be running and hopefully winning this side of Christmas. Virtually instant action in a lightly raced and potentially progressive individual, by the sire sensation Havana Grey. His race entries will show on this page.
