*Out of an own-sister to Gr.3 Gold Cup Chase winner QUENTIN COLLONGES and by the sire of A PLUS TARD*
This gorgeous filly was originally entered in the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale, which continues to be the leading National Hunt Store Sale anywhere in the world. But with all the sale dates being rescheduled at that time, her consignor supplemented her, along with 54 other store horse consignors, into the newly named 'Goffs Summer Sale' held in Doncaster.
She is by the outstanding National Hunt sire KAPGARDE out of an own-sister to Gr.3 Gold Cup Chase winner QUENTIN COLLONGES. Read about her sire here: http://hetraie.com/ Kapgarde has a large and impressive list of winning progeny, including 7 at Grade 1 level: A PLUS TARD, CLAN DES OBEAUX, FAKIR D'OUDAIRIES, FEU FOLLET, MILORD THOMAS and PRINCE ALI.
A PLUS TARD took the main prize at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, by winning The Gold Cup.

Racing Update: She is a good jumper and she will be out at the end of April. She’ll jump fences eventually but the plan is to get a few wins over hurdles ahead of that. Nicky is rather sweet on her and says that she is "a no nonsense, tough filly with a great attitude and I really like that." Her race entries/declarations will show on this page.
We saw her at our recent owners stable visit - here she is being shown to her owners:
