*Out of an own-sister to Gr.3 Gold Cup Chase winner QUENTIN COLLONGES*
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, her consignor supplemented her, along with 54 other store horse consignors, into the newly named 'Goffs Summer Sale' held in Doncaster. She joins the Champion Trainer and we are very excited to have bought her!
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/ and see his large impressive list of winning progeny in the gallery, including 8 at Grade 1 level: A PLUS TARD, CLAN DES OBEAUX, FAKIR D'OUDAIRIES, FEU FOLLET, MILORD THOMAS and PRINCE ALI. A great day for her sire, with A PLUS TARD winning the Grade 1 Savills Chase: https://www.racingpost.com/news/race-reports/just-in-time-a-plus-tard-flies-home-to-deny-kemboy-in-vintage-savills-chase/465506 and taking 2nd in the Cheltenham Gold Cup at this years Festival. Then at the 2021 Aintree Festval, FAKIR D'OUDAIRIES won the Grade 1 Marsh Chase.
See her walk and trot video here:
She looks like the type that should come to hand early, she's a big strong girl but looks racy enough at the same time. There are some very nice Spring bumpers that we could almost certainly look at with her, who knows, maybe even the Mare's bumper at Aintree could factor into the reckoning if she comes to hand.
Our Nicky Henderson, Seven Barrows string has really taken a few boosts as we have expanded our team; from the Kim Muir 3rd, Premier Bond, through to the Listed winning mare and Grade 2 placed Marie's Rock.
Training Update: She has worked well on the grass and we are just waiting for the French authorities to approve the registration of her new racing name (she is French bred.) She’s a strong, robust filly who has a lovely attitude and has shown ability and gone well; she’s a nice filly. Nicky is becoming rather sweet on her and says that she is "a no nonsense, tough filly with a great attitude and I really like that." He thinks it is best to give her a break now to take advantage of some lush spring grass so she will then be primed for an early return in a bumper. See a video of her on the gallops in the gallery.
Here's Nicky giving an update and overview on her, to National Hunt Manager Tom. (See all her videos in the gallery.)
