Purchased at the Tattersalls Ascot breeze up sale, this colt is by DRAGON PULSE - http://irishnationalstud.ie/stallion/dragon-pulse/
There are various factors that go into our breeze up purchasing recipe, but you have to start with the breeze and then factor in the horse. That's a simple mantra that seems to have worked so well. We've a whole host of agents and vendors' connections, which helps us with our sourcing, and possibly accounts for how we've performed so well over the years, including purchasing the Carlisle Bell winning Edgar Balthazar for £10,500 and the debut winning Fugleman (subsequently sold for 75,000gns) for £15,000.
Given he is bred to need 7f and a mile eventually, in that he timed the 5th fasted timed breeze of the day, where his slightly quicker contemporaries were by speedy stallions such as Gutaifan, Swiss Spirit and Coach House, this colt is a really strong and fast individual.
We've enjoyed fantastic success with Dragon Pulse, most notable our Coventry Stakes 6th NINETYTHREETWENTY, who won on debut in May, followed up in the Youngsters Conditions Stakes at Pontefract and went on to run so well, at Royal Ascot. He was subsequently sold to Hong Kong for a multiple, six figure sum. Plus GENEVER DRAGON, who won on his hurdling debut this year.
You can view his breeze and walk videos attached to this page.
Training Update: Looks well handicapped on his seasonal reappearance, but ‘bounced’ next time out, over CD. Should give his owners plenty of action and hopefully winning action, over the winter months. TIMEFORM RATED: 69
