By the top-class racehorse Garswood, this quality individual comes highly recommended by vendor Thomond O’Mara, the vendor to us of our debut winner, MALC, earlier this Spring.
“He’s a quality horse who can win his ‘maiden’ in as little as 3 weeks’ time, before going on to better things,” Thomond has gone on record as saying.
Furthermore, we loved his breeze, where he showed a fabulous attitude to hug the running rail and run as straight as a dye.
Watch his breeze, here:
He finished in 7th place in the ‘race’ and was actually the 4th colt home. He gained two places late on and was only just getting going as the breeze finalised itself. Thomond says: “Start him off over 6f in 3 weeks’ and he’ll win his maiden first time, however he will get further. Being by Garswood (who revelled in soft ground himself), he wouldn’t have appreciated the quick ground that they breezed on”.
Last season, we purchased Corallilo from this sale for the Harty’s to train and she won on debut, before being placed in Group company as a 2yo.
Watch his walk and profile, here:
If instant action, trained just around the corner from the famous Curragh racecourse, with the potential to emulate his year older stablemate is of interest, then look no further. We think he represents superb value for money at the €50,000 we’ve had to pay, but we believe it’s money very well spent.
Of fascinating interest and hugely exciting!
Training update (18th July): He has worked very nicely and has an entry to make his debut at The Curragh on Sunday. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
