Here's a fabulous son of the ultra-consistent, winner producing stallion Footstepsinthesand. He's a thoroughly attractive dark bay colt with a fantastic physique and very good movement. He is every inch a tough racehorse and he has the semblance of the typical type of individual that Mark has trained particularly well throughout his career. He's strong and looks tough with plenty of size, with a very resilient temperament too.
As a racehorse, Footstepsinthesand stayed a mile very well in winning the Group 1 Classic, the 2000 Guineas; so, it's fair to say he was out of the very top drawer. We've experienced great success before with his progeny in the form of our own Sandiva, who won her first two races before finishing 2nd in The Albany at Royal Ascot. As a 2yo she won the prestigious Group 3 Prix du Calvados at Deauville before going on to have a very successful career in America once sold.

Of course, the stallion of any racehorse is only half the story, the dam is a vital ingredient too. The dam of this colt Sindiyma, hails from a superb Aga Khan black type family that's steeped with a back catalogue of achievers of the highest order, most notably the Champion 3yo in Europe, SINNDAR. There are at least 10 Group and Listed performers in the pedigree and the dam herself was a winning racehorse. She's performed exceptionally well as a broodmare too, her three offspring to date all proving winners on the racecourse earning Timeform ratings of 92, 90 and 108 respectively. At least two of the three sires she has visited prior to visiting Footstepsinthesand, you would have to describe as stallions of lesser stallion potency than Footstepsinthesand.
Syndicate manager update: The perfect horse to own. Runs regularly, is always competitive whatever he does, this globetrotting horse has taken his owners to the biggest tracks, for the biggest races. He's already a Group 3 and dual Listed winner and has been placed at Group 1 and Group 2 levels. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
