Purchased at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses-In-Training sale; he is by Wootton Bassett. Read more about his sire here: https://www.etreham.com/eng/fiche-etalon-haras.php?nom=wootton-bassett.
He is 'French Owner Premiums' qualified and has joined the stable of MICK APPLEBY, who has done wonders with our own Star Of Southwold. Given he’s probably one of the shrewdest judges in the game and possibly one of the best improvers of a horse from others’ yards, it's no surprise that Mick was crowned 2019/20 Champion All-Weather Trainer, for the third consecutive year and he really is hard to beat in this sphere!
Mick put this horse to us as an individual from the afore mentioned sale, who he believes will particularly suit his way of operating. An expensive yearling purchase by Hamdan Al Maktoum at €170,000, it’s probably fair to say that he had not yet, proved to be as talented as the Dubai owner had perhaps hoped, so much so, that he was sent to the sales in October 2019, having placed 4th on all three attempts on track in France.
Racing Update: Probably in the home straight of his racing days at MPR but will run regularly over the coming weeks and will have every chance of picking up a race or two, before we move him on, in the medium term. TIMEFORM RATED: 73. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
