OLEG, a son of Kamsin raced just once over hurdles in France at Pau, and finished second in very eye-catching style. Here is a link to the race.http://www.france-galop.com/fr/course/detail/2018/O/MWFrQkEvd3cyYlJoZ2hvNHpvSVhKZz09 and then we swooped in to buy him!
He is out of a Darshaan mare and is a half-brother to listed and Group performers. He's a fantastic individual and bred to improve significantly with time and distance.
Paul Nicholls does so well with these French imports; horses like Frodon and Clan Des Obeaux, but Paul has a rich history of buying, bringing over French imports and finding steady improvement over a period of time.
Racing Update: Highly versatile performer, fully effective on the Flat, Hurdles & Fences. Still very unexposed and lightly raced over fences. Been off for a year, with 'a leg', but he’s back ensconced at Paul Nicholls’s Ditcheat yard and he’s pretty much raring to go, by all accounts. Will have a pipe opener, most probably, on the Flat (there could easily be a decent prize in him, given he went off very short in the market for a big Goodwood festival, staying race). Loves top of the ground and pings his fences. Exciting and remains with plenty of potential. TIMEFORM RATINGS: Flat 87 Chase 124 Hurdles 110. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
