In recent years, Nicky Henderson has plundered many a Grade 1 prize over hurdles and fences. BUVEUR D’AIR is one of his top level performers to come out of Seven Barrows and he has catapulted the young sire CRILLON, who stands in France, to the higher echelons of the NH stallion ranks. He is the sire of this mare and you can see his profile page here: http://harasdelabaie.com/effectives/article/6/crillon-ps/.
Given her pedigree, her looks and her gait, we were determined to give her our very best shot, at bringing her home to Seven Barrows for Nicky to train from Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale. She hails from a fabulous family.
She won a bumper on debut and has now won 4 times over hurdles.
Racing Update: Stays all day, best over hurdles and on top of the ground. She’s not had things fall right for her the last twice and she’s becoming rather well handicapped as a result. Plenty of races to be won with her, and she comes in on a very sensible budget for anyone keen to hit the winners’ enclosure. Timeform rated 119. Her race entries/declarations will show on this page.
