A year previously to buying Revich, we were the underbidder on a yearling at the Goffs U.K.Yearling sale, by Choisir out of the mare Bunditton. We usually try to follow wherever possibly, not just the careers of our own horses but also some of the horses we nearly purchased to constantly analyse our performance and ability to successfully select future talent from the sales arena. The Choisir yearling turned out to be RAJASINGHE, the 2017 Coventry Stakes winner, who has now gone off to stud.
However, in following Rajasinghe's career we've also been attracted to the talents of his trainer Richard Spencer. He's a fabulous young man who appears to have a great temperament for the training game and undoubted ability too. Having been pupil assistant to and second in command to the likes of Barry Hills, Charlie Hills and Michael Bell you can see why his ability to train racehorses is without question.
So, it was with great relish that we were able to establish a working partnership with Richard. We were determined to ensure that our first venture together, is a successful one and we were, as usual, particularly diligent in our sales approach in pursuit of what we perceive to be the right individual. Revich, a fabulous son of the very speedy REQUINTO is that horse! His sire; described as "Dansili's fastest 2 year old," now stands in Italy.
You could categorise him as "trainer's horse." This is a phrase which alludes to him being a no-nonsense individual that is hardy and tough, but above all, appears very sound and very trainable.
Racing Update: Seasoned handicapper, who runs in all the BIG Mile handicaps. One day, one will drop his way and he’ll land a HUGE POT. Finished 3rd in Goodwood’s Golden Mile last season, and with a little more luck in running, could have plundered the prize. Loves Chester to bits and enjoys a tiny bit of cut in the ground. No Spring chicken, but dines at the top, Saturday & Festival handicaps table. TIMEFORM RATED: 103.
