There’s probably no finer trainer in the land, of a young, staying prospect, than Sir Mark Prescott. Whether you’ve a top-class stayer or a horse who needs handicapping before he or she can win, Sir Mark will have earmarked a plan that culminates in a success story. Take our fabulous 6 times, consecutively winning TIMOSHENKO, for instance, having taken, the £50,000 Class 2 Unibet Goodwood Handicap over 2m4f. Purchased as a yearling for 40,000gns, Timoshenko afforded his merry throng of owners, a journey of a lifetime.
Sir Mark’s career is glittered with such success stories and with the fabulous genes that the sire and dam bring to the table i.e. AUSTRALIA (Epsom Derby winner) and the dam NAVAJO MOON (Listed winning and 106 rated), we can go into battle, believing we have a horse who could achieve at any level conceivable. Obviously, under Sir Mark’s tutelage, we will ascertain at which level we will start, determined of course, by what level Sir Mark believes he can achieve in the end. It’s a fantastic game of cat and mouse, that Sir Mark purveys with the handicapper, and we all know who usually comes out on top; or the results from the Heath House contingent, usually lead us in a suggested direction.
Visits to Heath House Stables are second to none, and a reason in themselves to be part of the ownership team. An hour in his company, and you know you are in no finer hands, than with the Baronet. His updates and communication are both legendary and we’d strongly recommend you get involved, no matter what your motives are, for wishing to own a racehorse. Sir Mark is very adroit at letting owners know when is the day to support your horse in the betting ring, and those days when it could just prove fruitless, so to do.
Pedigree update: Yagan is now half brother to four winners, including Manjeer (RPR 108) and Samasthiti (RPR 100)
Racing Update: A typical Sir Mark project. Rated just 43, but we are led to believe he is exceptionally well handicapped. He’s a huge, strapping individual who has always been destined to get better with age. He was never going to achieve as a 2yo, what with his physique and pedigree. He’s a half-brother to two black type horses, which could lead us to discover, going forward, that 43 is a farcical starting point for his 3yo career. He could be around at MPR for a while, as he rises through the ranks and could possibly embark upon a dual-purpose career, in time. Sir Mark thinks he wants top of the ground, so he looks destined to be busy from Maytime onwards.
