CROSSING LINES is a two time winning Irish Point To Pointer and half brother to the highest OR150 chaser, Arctic Skipper.
He won a very competitive “winners of one” Point to Point race and he both outjumped and outclassed his opposition.
By the late sire JEREMY, https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/jeremys-only-two-jumps-crops-suggest-hes-a-serious-loss-to-the-industry/366788, Nicky Henderson gave a glowing interview at Cheltenham about the sire, when Mister Fisher won the Class 2 Ryman Novices' Chase. He of course, is also the sire of our dual Group 2 winner Kool Kompany, now a sire in his own right.
His form is quite exceptional: He dished out a 20-length demolition of a number of very talented rivals in the "winners' of one, Point To Pointer," bringing his tally to 2 impressive wins. You can watch a video of his impressive victory in the gallery. The P2P.ie summariser’s view of this race can also be seen in the gallery.
The Racing Post were hugely impressed too (the link to his Racing Post profile is included on this profile page.) He’s been awarded a massive Racing Post Rating for this win of 106 and given the likes of Bacardys and Topofthegame (both subsequent Grade 1 festival winners) were awarded ratings of 93 and 94 respectively for their Point To Point victories, you can clearly see what sort of an impression CROSSING LINES made.
Videos of him can be seen in the gallery.
Racing Update: He had a season off, with what can be typical for a National Hunt horse - 'a leg' - after we’d bought him, following his 2 Point To Point victories in his native Ireland. He’s a giant of a horse who is one of the most spectacular jumpers of an obstacle, that could could ever wish to see. He’s performed with great credit, placing twice over hurdles for us this Winter and we’d hope to sign off with a win, very very soon, before the season closes. Fences, next season, will be the absolute making of him. We can just see him pinging away, up front, jumping from fence to fence, in his beloved soft or heavy ground, grinding his opponents into submission. He could make up into a Welsh National horse. We can dare to dream! Timeform rated: Hurdle 114
