Following the success of our GRAND DU NORD syndicate with Micky Hammond, when he won his bumper impressively by 4 lengths at Hexham in the Spring, (he looks like he could be top class over obstacles.) We are thrilled to be able to add this exciting 4yo gelding by Kap Rock to our Micky Hammond string. The pedigree is littered with black type, staying hurdlers and chasers and this super gelding looks destined to follow in their hoof steps, by all accounts.
Kap Rock, an exciting young sire, who is a half-brother to the top-class National Hunt sire KAPGARDE. He is to become the latest French recruit to join Knockhouse Stud in Ireland.

Here he is on Micky's gallops:
In the gallery, you can see a video of his trot and also working upsides on the gallops.
Sourced by ace Bloodstock Agents, Peter and Toby Jones (who found Grand Du Nord for us), our 4yo has been with Micky for the 2020/2021 season. He holds in him very high regard and he comes very well recommended to us, based on his homework in the Winter/Spring.
We took little hesitation to agree to purchase him when he was put to us, based on his pedigree and homework. Here’s what Micky has to say about him: "His nick name/ stable name is Dougal. He is a really athletic individual, who wouldn’t look out of place in Nicky Henderson’s string! He has a wonderful attitude and loves his work. He has now done his nursery schooling and is ready for the step up to the next level."
He will hopefully hit the track this Autumn in a National Hunt Flat race and you’d very much hope he’d be able to win one, early on in his career. Obviously, his main careers will be over obstacles, and really, we’re already marking off time until he races in those spheres.
He’s an impressive, exciting, unraced individual, who should give his owners some fantastic fun for a few years to come.
Training Update (24th December): We saw him at our owners stable recently and he looked great. He has a good size about him and Micky is adamant that he can go well in all three disciplines: Bumper, Flat and Chasing. He presents with lots of ability and a good attitude. Micky is now looking for races for him to make his debut and he may take him for an away day as part of his prep beforehand. See videos of him in the gallery.
