By NORSE DANCER, the sire of YANWORTH, this gelding joins the yard of JOE TIZZARD.
This fabulous Norse Dancer Gelding comes highly recommended. He’s from a deep deep Aga Khan pedigree, which is full of Graded Hurdle and Chase winners as well as Champion Middle distance Flat horses and Epsom Derby winners. It’s a potent match, a potent pedigree indeed.
He’ll start off in a bumper, then head over hurdles in the Autumn of 2023 and then over fences, in either the Autumn of 2024 or 2025. Chasing’s what he’s bred to be, and we’d suggest a pretty quick and slick chaser, potentially over 2m.
Here's a video of him loose schooling and he’s a natural at his obstacles:
He’s a lovely chasing size too at 16.3hh so really tailor made for that job. He’s the perfect fit for the Tizzard’s who love a big chasing type, building horses to a crescendo for their Chase careers at big Spring Festivals.
He will be called Nordic Storm - the name references both sire and dam; Norse Dancer has that obvious ‘Nordic’ connection while ‘Storm’ is one of the wind strengths defined in the Beaufort Scale (the dam being Lady Beaufort).
Training Update (19th April): He has been away once for a gallop and has done plenty of prep work at home. Joe and the whole Tizzard team are fans of this fellow. He has the perfect mindset and is a pleasure to ride. Here's Joe's update video on him....
