Ice Cold In Alex
Middleham Park Racing has expanded its operation into Ireland – home to where is, without doubt, one of the strongest racing calendars in the world, with the likes of Coolmore, Juddmonte, Godolphin, Shadwell and HH Aga Khan all racing there. With that comes great rivalry and in turn, if good enough, a terrific opportunity. It is fair to say that an Irish Maiden winner at 2 or 3 years, is worth a significant amount of money. There are some wonderful racecourses and facilities in Ireland and being so accessible from the UK, it seems like the obvious next move.
Ice Cold In Alex, trained in Ireland by The Curragh based trainer Ken Condon, is a gelding by Olden Times and was a June foal, so lightly raced as a 2yo.
Ken says he is a very genuine and progressive, with a terrific temperament and willingness to please in both his work and on the track. His half-brother, Packing Genius had an official rating of 98 after winning a Class 2 at Ascot and was subsequently sold to race in Hong Kong.
We had some feedback from some of our owners who went to the Punchestown Festival with one of our runners, which echoes that of our owners who went to race at Leopardstown with Ventura Storm. They said they were "treated like Kings!"
