Tyger Bay is a very interesting recruit to the MPR ranks. He’s a very fast, very talented and fast improving sprinter who loves both soft ground and the AW; he’s particularly versatile. Sprinters often both improve with age, and get quicker with age.
He’s the first horse we’ve had with Newmarket’s Conrad Allen. He describes him as “the sort of horse who could make up into a Portland horse”. All those top 5f and 6f handicaps can be on his agenda, too, whether they be the Gold Cup or Silver Cup versions. Many of these races are run on soft ground, which is perfect for Tyger Bay, a son of Cable Bay, who enjoyed ease in the ground himself.
He’s only 4yo and relatively lightly raced by sprinters’ standards. He was only available, because his previous owner has taken the decision to reduce his Bloodstock interests. The current owner and the trainer will own 25% each and we have purchased a 50% interest in the horse, to race in the MPR silks.
Tyger Bay is a rapidly improving sprinter, who’s a very exciting recruit, and comes in on a very sensible budget indeed, especially when you consider what there could still be to come. Usually, sprinters don’t peak until they are 5 and 6yo; take Copper Knight for example.
Racing Update: Honest and consistent sprint handicapper who loves the AW. Loves Soft ground too, but never really got to be able to take advantage of that last summer, given it was one of the driest seasons on record. He’s a Saturday handicapper when things drop right and he runs regularly, picks up prize money on almost every occasion and offers his owners regular action. TIMEFORM RATED: 88. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
