At the sales we've been asked by several owners if we'd be interested in buying a 'staying' horse. We thought if we're going to do this, we will do it properly, so we've called this project 'Operation Ascot Gold Cup'. We don't do things by halves! 

At MPR we think one of the things we do well is to put the right horse with the correct trainer and that's why we've asked one of the best trainer of stayers in the country to look after this horse; none other than the legendary Sir Mark Prescott will train and the horse is a lovely big and scopey Archipenko colt. He is 'Plus 10' registered.

Archipenko was a very classy racehorse. He was a Group 1 winner along with five other Group victories. He has also made a fantastic start to his career as a sire and he has already produced a Group 1 winner in the shape of Madame Chiang. He also has G2 and G3 winners and other black type performers to his name. He is definitely a rising star in the stallion ranks and Sir Mark is a big fan as he has already had success with his progeny, including listed winner Time Warp. 

The dam is called Nezhenka whom Sir Mark trained to win, so his experience of the family should stand us in good stead. She comes from a very successful family with bold black type right through the pedigree. This is her second foal. 

We purchased the horse at Tattersalls Book 2 for 42k from Miss Kirsten Rausing who bred him-he is in fact the most expensive Archipenko of this sales season. As Miss Rausing is a long standing client of Sir Mark's, we feel we've got an incredible bargain and we know for a fact she was hoping to get in the region of 60k to 80k! 

Latest Trainer Update: (3rd Nov) After getting his handicap mark, he will now go away for a well deserved holiday and will return in the new year. The first half of the plan has come nicely together and we very much look forward to racing him again in the Spring over a distance of ground, having strengthened up a good deal.
