The MPR and Richard Fahey 2-year-old success story!
We have a superb record with our juveniles trained by Richard. His is our only trainer who has sent 2-year old’s that we have purchased as yearlings, to race at Royal Ascot – every year since 2017! Simmy’s Copshop, Ninetythreetwenty and Ventura Rebel are these trailblazers and we think our new purchases are a step up again in quality.
The owners of Ninetythreetwenty and Ventura Rebel accepted multiple six figure offers for both these 2-year olds and consequently earned a fantastic profit, so we do know how to buy a talented yearling for Mr Fahey to train. Listed and Group winning fillies Sandiva and Lily's Angel were also superstars for us trained at Musley Bank.
Our 2019 Ripon, Hornblower Conditions race winner, Ventura Lightning (Timeform OR 100), bought in 2019 as a breeze-up colt, is one to look forward to back on the turf this season.
Purchased at the prestigious Tattersalls Book 1 Sale, we’ve had to dig mighty deep to secure this colt, by the same sire as Advertise, Quiet Reflection and many many more, for 85,000gns. Read about his sire SHOWCASING here: https://www.whitsburymanorstud.co.uk/showcasemain.html.
This is the Premier yearling Sale in Europe each sales season and takes place at Park Paddocks, Newmarket, during the first week of October. The Book 1 catalogue as it is known, is filled with European Breeders’ choicest individuals. For us to be able to secure this fabulous son of the most exciting sire of his generation, SHOWCASING, means we are tapping into the very best genes around; genes that include the Champion sprinter ERTIJAAL, RIVER MEMORIES and the grand dam of this colt, the Nell Gwyn winner MISTERAH. The whole family is blessed with speed, but blessed with precocious, 2yo speed!
Having won the Woodcote Stakes at the Epsom Derby Meeting in 2017, with our son of Showcasing, De Bruyne Horse, we feel this colt in particular represents, at this early stage, our best opportunity to win the race again before, potentially heading off to Royal Ascot. In addition, this colt is also reminiscent of the above mentioned VENTURA REBEL, who lowered the colours of Wesley Ward’s Lady Pauline on Royal Ascot Trials’ day at the Berkshire track in May. He went on to place 2nd in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes, on his next start. This loose moving, and particularly well put together colt, ticks all the same boxes, that were ticked by both De Bruyne Horse and Ventura Rebel, in our opinion.
The provenance of this colt is enhanced still further, by the fact that we purchased him from Redpender Stud, the team, from whom, we purchased our 2013 Champion European 2yo TOORMORE. People often allude to the fact that a horse’s pedigree starts right at the top of the page i.e. with the consignors themselves. It’s an adage, we agree wholeheartedly with; we know the horses from Redpender have been afforded the very best of care from birth, through to sale.
He was broken in at the same livery yard, we used to break in the above mentioned VENTURA REBEL last year and NINETYTHREETWENTY the previous year, so there’s every reason to hope that this colt can follow in their illustrious hoof-steps in his racing career.
Pedigree Update (19th September): "The colt's victory on Saturday took Showcasing's stud record to 91 stakes performers, a list that now includes 22 Group winners." Showcasing's son Alkumait wins the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/bloodstock-latest/shades-of-mohaather-as-showcasings-son-alkumait-slams-mill-reef-rivals/451250
See him at home on the gallops (he is behind the lead horse) and walking home from exercise:
Being bought at the Book 1 Sale, he qualified for the highly lucrative, £25,000 'Tattersalls Book 1 bonus,' (alongside his qualification for the 'Plus 10 Bonus' scheme too.) We were delighted that he was able to pick up this bonus at Musselburgh. Read about that here: https://www.tattersalls.com/bonus-books/winners/OC1/207
Syndicate Manager Update: A very impressive 41/2 length Maiden winner at Musselburgh last time out, where Barry McHugh just had to coast him home under hands and heels. The form from our demolition job up at Musselburgh has been boosted, with the 3rd horse now winning twice since and the 2nd horse has also won, so it’s solid form indeed!
