Recently transferred from Sir Mark Prescott to Paul Nicholls OBE...
A huge, warrior of a horse, who we purchased as a yearling, from the Goffs Orby Sale, for €62k., he is by the Coolmore Stallion AUSTRALIA: https://coolmore.com/stallions/australia.
He’s proven a brilliant servant for us and Sir Mark Prescott, over the course of the last two Flat seasons, winning 4 staying races in total. He stands at 16.3hh and looks all over a strong candidate to take to the National Hunt game under the tutelage of 13 times Champion NH trainer Paul Nicholls.
He stays well, acts on any ground and he’s blessed with a physique and action that should sit perfectly for the jumps game. He possesses a brilliant head carriage and tries his sizeable heart out. He’s a very sound horse, he’s just possesses no secrets from the Flat handicapper, who knows his levels of performance intimately.
A change of codes and possibly, too, a change of scenery looks just the ticket for this, now, exciting Novice Hurdler and possible future Novice Chaser. He’s still only just turned 4yo (now 5) so he’s young enough to hopefully make a big impression over obstacles.
We look forward to getting him back to winning ways, with a Summer of jumps’ action. And you never know, he could be winning too, back on the Flat in due course.
Racing Update: Yagan is a big strapping horse who rattled up a sequence as a 3yo, then needed his wind tidying up, which has worked great. Tough, genuine and consistent, Paul Nicholls texted our National Hunt Manager Tom asking if we ever wanted to send him jumping, could he have him, so Paul got his wish! He has now moved from Sir Mark's to Pauls Ditcheat yard. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
