INTELLO, a son of the mighty Galileo, is a thoroughly talented sire and has provided MPR with numerous winners, from a small number of horses: Lexington Empire, who was the winner of four races and was then sold for 80,000gns, having being purchased rather inexpensively as a yearling for 20,000gns, followed by our four time winner and Listed 2nd placed Mensen Ernst. Read more about his sire here: http://www.lequesnay.com/pid23/etalon-17/intello#production.
He is 'French Owner Premiums' qualified, should we wish to race him in France.
To be able to be part of Intello's journey with the fabulously bred *Carpentier, is quite a privilege for us at MPR. The mare of our colt is non to shabby either, she's already produced the five time winning and 100 Timeform rated Heliostatic filly ELLA DIVA, now the dam herself of a winner from her first runner.
There’s probably no finer trainer in the land, of a staying prospect, than Sir Mark Prescott. Whether you’ve a top-class stayer or a horse who needs handicapping before he or she can win, Sir Mark will have earmarked a plan that culminates in a success story. Take our fabulous 6 times, consecutively winning Timoshenko for instance, having taken, the £50,000 Class 2 Unibet Goodwood Handicap over 2m4f in 2019. Purchased as a yearling for 40,000gns, Timoshenko afforded his merry throng of owners, a journey of a lifetime, in the care of Sir Mark.
Sir Mark’s career is glittered with such success stories and he is very adroit at letting owners know when is the day to support your horse in the betting ring, and those days when it could just prove fruitless, so to do and he is very good at giving us weekly updates on our horses.
He's a smashing individual, he's got some size about him, but not too much. He possesses a lovely balance to his movement and he carries himself well and in a super, fluent manner. A half-brother to a Listed winner, in traditional Sir Mark 'Timoshenko' style, we look forward to a very productive 3 and 4yo career with this fellow over a trip.
He should have a very decent residual value at the end of the season too, or we could keep him as a 4yo for 2022, or we could send him hurdling, on soft ground, which he loves, over the NH Winter season 2021/2022. A very exciting and thoroughly unexposed individual.
*His racing name CARPENTIER, is after Georges Carpentier; a French boxer, actor and World War I pilot.
Training Update: Sir Mark has decided to give him a freshen up and he has come back in now and is ready to run. He has been a typical Sir Mark Prescott, ‘project;' just like his stable mate YAGAN (who has won a hat-trick this season!) and is bred to come into his own over middle distances. His race entries/declarations will show on this page. TIMEFORM RATED 72.
Here he is on Warren Hill, in front:
