The next Marie’s Rock or Park Hill Dancer? 

From precisely the same source as our recent 17 lengths Bumper winner Park Hill Dancer, we may just be launching our next Marie’s Rock, this time, into the Donald McCain winners’ machine, whose wins, run to 150 and counting this National Hunt season alone. 

I NEED YOU, a 4yo mare by top sire Great Pretender, ran out a very impressive P2P Bumper winner at Wilton P2P recently, on her racecourse debut, just had Park Hill Dancer, only a few weeks earlier, before we purchased him privately from the Leslie Jefford yard. In her race, I Need You (white cap & yellow sleeves,) stalked the pace all the way, took up the running around 2.5f out and kept on super strong through the line. We loved her stride and head carriage, in watching the video back. 

GREAT PRETENDER, the sire of Benie Des Dieux and Greaneteen, amongst many other top class performers is a stallion who tends to excel with his fillies and mares in particular, and this strapping 16.2hh mare, is a half-sister to the Sussex and Devon Nationals winner Christmas In April, and our very own 3-time winner Go Chique. 

With youth very much on her side, we’d hope to win a rules’ bumper this Spring, before putting her away for the Summer and come back hurdling in the Autumn. As you’d expect, from her very strong pedigree, we’re led to believe she’s a very talented mare, with a massive engine and a huge future over hurdles and fences, in time. We’re told she enjoys a bit of cut in the ground, and that she’ll stay further than 2m in time, possibly 3m will be within her compass eventually. The dream, of course, is to emulate Marie’s Rock in winning two Grade 1's in 2022 at both The Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals!

She has settled into life with Donald McCain, who has had his best ever season in 2021/22 and we can't wait to see her out. The dream starts here!
