Richard Hannon Jnr: “We’ve not had one move as well him, around here, for years. He’s the best moving horse of the whole sales’ season, bar none”.

Ross Doyle: “Richard and myself both agreed we weren’t going to go home without this colt.”

If those sorts of quotes don’t get your ownership juices flowing, then, we’re not sure what will!

At MPR we weren’t especially looking to add a further Richard Hannon yearling to our roster, however, when Richard rang to recommend we check this stunning colt out and to take a serious look at what he felt was an exceptional horse, we took no time at all to agree to purchase him - the hammer went down, as it were, immediately. 

However, don’t just take our, Ross’ or Richard’s recommendations alone - check out his video and photo for yourself and peruse his pedigree too (attached)

Watch his walk at Herridge, here:

Havana Gold, during his racing times, was actually trained by Richard Hannon Snr to win the French 2000 Guineas and he is, of course, the sire of the Group 1 winning stallion sensation HAVANA GREY, who is fast becoming an elite sire, including being the sire of VANDEEK and our very own SHOULDVEBEENARING. 

This colt’s pedigree is double pronged, however. He has an elite sire and a dam who is a DANSILI daughter of the Champion Cheveley Park mare INTERVAL. She’s already produced 2 BLACK TYPE performers, including a black type full brother to this colt, who cost a mere 20,000gns. He was early enough to debut over 5f, in the April of his 2yo career so there’s plenty of precocity in the genes and of course more quality about this colt too.

We’d very much hope, our colt could seriously supersede his sibling’s, on the track exploits, not that they were too shabby in themselves, in performing to a black type level. Bred to be an April, May or June 2yo debutant, he’s every inch a potentially top-class horse in the making and where better to have a son of Havana Gold in training, than Richard Hannon and the wonderful Herridge Racing Stables?

He just oozes class, class, class - his 100,000gns hammer price hints at just how good he could be!
