Walk and Profile Video: 

Pivotal needs no introduction as a racehorse (to those old enough to remember his Group 1 winning exploits) and certainly not as an all-conquering stallion and broodmare sire. Retired from stud duties now, our colt hails from the penultimate crop of the famous sire.

Mark Johnston is renowned, traditionally, for producing horses that progress with age and distance; horses who are better at 3yo than 2yo and who excel at distances of 12f and beyond. That’s precisely what we believe we have purchased in this fabulously well-bred colt. He’s a tall individual who has plenty of size, and he’s quite long in stature which also suggests he will improve and mature into his frame as he gets older.

He has gone away to be broken in now (see the update below) and we’ll send him into Mark’s Middleham yard in February, just in case he is the sort of horse who belies his genes and wishes to have a fulsome 2yo career.

He’s a close relation to a top-class handicap hurdler and he ought to retain significant residual value at the end of his Flat career. He ticks plenty of boxes for us and beyond his time with MPR.

Training update (9th September): He is receiving his education at Richie McGrath's pre training yard, where we send many of our yearlings each year. Richie says: "He is progressing well and is currently lunging with one and two reins, stopping and starting on command and has started long reining in the lunge ring and arena. The next stage will see him long reining in open spaces along with getting used to someone starting to lean over him." See these video updates of him in the gallery.
