VIEWING - If you are interested in taking a share in this colt, we are in the process of booking a stable visit to Heath House in May. Please email charlotte@middlehamparkracing.net if you are interested in joining us. Please do not contact the yard directly.

You could make a ready case for suggesting this fabulous colt is just about as well-bred a horse as we have ever purchased as a yearling. Sir Mark, so adept at purchasing and training top class racehorses, most recently Marsha, bought this fabulous colt at Ireland's premier sale; Goffs in September. The pedigree oozes, not just black type and Group performers but champions amidst the Group 1 winners moreover. He hails from the fabulous Kirsten Rausing main family, that of Albanova, Alborada and Alouette. The grand dam of this colt is the champion race filly Albanova who is a full sister to the champion filly in Ireland of 1998 Alborada; both horses were trained by Sir Mark from his Heath House Stables at the foot of Warren Hill. In fact, there are a total of 13 Group and listed winning horses in this colt's pedigree that were trained by Sir Mark himself. He knows this outstanding family, fabulously well. 

Furthermore, this colt is by the virtually peerless stallion Oasis Dream, the sire of Pretty Pollyanna, Muhaarar, Ertijaal, Midday, Arcano, Prohibit, Gale Force Ten, Showcasing, Polydream and Power to name but a few. The genes from our dam, who is by the Champion sire Galileo, lest we forget, combined with the Green Desert genes of Oasis Dream really suggest we could be looking at here, a horse of the highest order. Read about his sire here: https://www.juddmonte.com/stallions/oasisdream/default.aspx.

Our colt is the 3rd progeny from the 2yo winning, listed performing mare Albamara, trained by Sir Mark for her 3 years of racing. Sir Mark trains the second progeny of Albamara, currently a 2yo called All Points West, who having raced just three times this season, is being brought along steadily through the Heath House training regime. Sir Mark believes him to be remarkably well handicapped off 68, following his three runs at 2 years, this season. He's pretty sure that handicap mark will alter rapidly throughout All Points West's 3yo career. Sir Mark is very familiar with the first progeny from the mare too, Elhafei trained by John Gosden; Sir Mark saw him most days in his work around Newmarket and reports the horse as, unwilling to settle and far too free in his work to ever make a racehorse. It is with a very open eye, that we can firmly believe the possibility of our yearling Oasis Dream colt striding on to greatness once he hits the track in 2019 and beyond. 

This colt hails from a champions family and is fortunate enough to be by a champion sire. Now whether he turns out to be a champion himself, is open to question, but on genes and looks alone, you couldn't rule it out. 

Trainer update (15th April): Sir Mark is giving him a mini break now, as he sees him as a second half of the season debutante: Exactly the same as Timoshenko was at this stage of his 5 time winning career. Sir Mark went to see this colt at the weekend and told us that we have done exactly the right thing giving him a short holiday, as he has grown and strengthened up nicely, in fact he says that he is 'thriving'. The Heath House team couldn't have been more bullish about what they had seen from this colt at home before his break- being one of their more promising 2 year old's, with a great attitude and super movement. When Sir Mark gives feedback like this, we have to believe that he has a decent level of ability in his locker and hold aspirations that he can prove to be yet another MPR/Heath House success story!

We are delighted to say that he has been given the lovely name of Theheartneverlies. Very apt, with his heart shape marking on his head.

*DERBY ENTRY* - Sir Mark has entered our colt for The 2020 Epsom Derby. It is quite a privilege and an honour for Sir Mark to believe he has this level of potential.
