Here we have a simply gorgeous gelding by the very interesting sire Special Kaldoun. Nicky Henderson’s "specimen of the sale" coupled with Anthony Bromley’s rare "2 tick" rating, which is the highest rating he can award a horse, suggests just what the professionals think of this gelding. Nicky Henderson was blown away by this lad, quoting: “He’s just so free and fluid in his motion and is a real quality stamp of a horse. He isn’t just an individual, he has the quality pedigree to give you that extra push as well that you need to take you to the very top.”

In bloodstock, you are always on the lookout for a sire who adds value to mares, Special Kaldoun looks just that. He brings a real emphasis on quality over quantity as he is a sire who does not cover many mares at all in season, in some cases nearly as low as single figures, so for him to have sired the likes of Dandy Mag (2nd in a Grade 2 and 3rd in a Grade 1) and Bleu Berry (Grade 2 winner) whom are both only in their novice season must tell you what an underutilised sire he is. In an age where every breeder is trying to breed a sales topper and not a race horse, this gelding is a refreshing break from the norm. Before visiting Special Kaldoun the mare has had an exceptional record recording an outstanding 6 winners from only 7 runners. These are by not simply your run of the mill winners as well, of those six winners two have been rated north of 140, a rating that will get you into all the big handicaps. A visit to Special Kaldoun is a significant upgrade on any of the sires she has visited to-date in the opinion of expert Ant Bromley and given his ability to produce the highest quality horses with limited ammunition one would suggest this gelding is destined for the very top.

We were delighted to add this horse to our string with the Champion trainer and he looks likely to take his owners to the very biggest race days. He is a lovely stamp of a horse, who has great quality about him and could just be a bit special.

*Please note that it is possible to change his registered name, so naming rights ARE available (with a 15% share purchase).

Latest Trainer Update: Nicky says: "There's no finer athlete that I've bought this year". High praise indeed with the quality of the Seven Barrows in mates! He is in the final stage of being broken in and it’s a case of so far so good with him as he is taking everything in his stride. Once he has been ridden, he will then have a couple of weeks holiday in a field to relax after the rigors of the sales ring, moving to his new yard and being broken in. He will then return to take up the next stage of learning how to be a Seven Barrows racehorse and join the daily training routine.
