Get The Appeal
You have to be very on the ball when trying to buy Irish Point to Point winners, they are very hard to source, if you are looking for real quality. Tom Malone, the ace NH agent, responsible for sourcing Native River, Finian's Oscar, Black Corton. Wakanda, Modus, Posh Trish, Capitaine and many more found this fantastically well-bred daughter of GETAWAY, who just happens to be a half-sister to the 158 'best RPR' rated FOX APPEAL.
We were thrilled when Tom contacted us to advise us that he thought he'd found the perfect mare to fulfil our requirements and so we bought this gorgeous mare privately. Her pedigree, her athletic looks, her jumping ability and her stamina stand her in fabulously good stead and physically, she looks the sort who can strengthen up still further, with age, which could bring out significant improvement too.
We bought her, having won her P2P in Ireland, so anything she does over hurdles is a bonus, as they say. She’s done nothing but improve, since we’ve stepped her up in trip. There's a fantastic programme of races for mares these days, with some outstanding prize money attributed to them.
Racing Update: A 3-time winner, she’s a tough as old boots, National Hunt mare, who’s still relatively low mileage, especially over fences. There’s a suspicion that she’s better on top of the ground, so we’ve tended to tread carefully when it’s been mid-winter, hock deep. Stays all day and there should be plenty more days to come with her, especially over fences. She’ll be ready to run again in a couple of weeks’ time for the Paul Nicholls, Ditcheat team. TIMEFORM RATED: CHASE 114 HURDLE 114. Her race entries/declarations will show on this page.
