Outofthisworld                   WINNER

Sire : Shantou    Dam : Mystic Masie  

Bay Filly 2013

Trained by Harry Fry

I purchased this filly from the foal sales in 2013 for much the same reason as the Shirocco (Queen of the Wind) – nicely put together, looked strong with good bone, and a nice mover. 

Her dam was un-raced and this is her second foal and is a half sister to a 4-y-o Robin des Champs filly, Reine de Whitfield, in training with Willie Mullins, who he thinks highly of 

She comes from a good family with lots of black type in the pedigree.

Outofthisworld made her racecourse debut in a Bumper at Market Rasen on 27th March 2017 and won emphatically - by 11 lengths!  A sure star of the future, she will begin her hurdling career during this season and is sure to give us plenty of excitement, and hopefully lots more success.

She is trained by Harry Fry.

Queen Of The Wind       WINNER

Sire : Shirocco    Dam : Kaydee Queen 

Bay Filly 2013

Handicap Mark : 97 (H)

Trained by Colin Tizzard

I bought her from the foal sales in 2013 because I judged her to be well put together and she moved nicely at walk and trot. She is a half sister to the impressive Pires in training with Tony Martin in Ireland, a winner of 9 races and over £166k prize money, and also a half sister to 9-y-o Royal Player, in training with Philip Hobbs, who has achieved 4 wins from 10 runs and over £35k in prize money.  It is a solid pedigree and I was impressed with the black type achieved by the family (black type for wins/places in Listed/Graded races). 

Queen of the Wind has been brought along gently, having so far had five runs over hurdles although you can discount her first run at Ffos Las when she unseated her rider at the first!  The conditions there that day were dire, but since then she has been thoroughly schooled and her jumping now is stylish and efficient.  It takes time to establish a horse's preferences, but after her win at Southwell on 5th March 2018 we know two miles is her trip and she prefers decent ground.  In due course she will jump fences and we look forward to having lots of fun with her over the coming years.

She is trained by Colin Tizzard.

Un-named Gelding (unraced) 

Sire : Sholokhov    Dam : Diligent

Bay Gelding 2014

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained by : Nick Williams

I am very excited to announce that a new bay gelding will join the syndicate this year.  He turned three on 1st January and is the first foal of our talented mare Diligent who won two bumpers for us whilst trained by Donald McCain.  Sadly she then fractured her pelvis on the gallops and could not race again.  This gelding is her first progeny by Sholokhov who was a Grade I winner on the flat over a mile and started his stallion duties in Germany covering mainly flat bred mares.  Coolmore moved him to Ireland in 2013 as a National Hunt sire and he is starting to have plenty of winners, with Don Cossack the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner his outstanding horse to date.  The stallion is now proving very popular with NH trainers and last year his progeny sold for up to £175,000. 

The gelding has been in pre-training with Denis Leahy in Ireland for some time, is already cantering and should be ready to come to England this summer.   The photo above was taken during July 2017 when we made our most recent annual pilgrimage to Ireland and he is not carrying that amount of condition now!

If he shows his father's speed and his mother's determination then we will have a seriously exciting horse in our stable! 

 

Un-named Gelding (unraced) 

Sire : Arcadio (GER)   Dam : Carrigtohilljewel (IRE)

Bay Gelding 2015

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained by : Colin Tizzard

A very nice 3-y-o bay gelding, first foal of Carrigtohilljewel.  He comes from a good old fashioned chasing family and I acquired him as a foal because I liked the look of him and I owned one from the same family, Free Gift, who won seven races for me over fences.  Free Gift’s half brother, Bears Affair, trained by Nicky Henderson, was a top horse rated as high as 152, a winner of nine races and was particularly fond of Aintree.  I am hoping this one will follow in their footsteps.

Our gelding has been pre-trained by Denis Leahy since February and has done well and Denis is sure he will make a racehorse.  He has taken well to the training regime and done everything expected of him and towards the end of May 2018 will be turned out  in the paddocks for the summer.

I think he is the type of horse that will really suit Colin Tizzard’s training regime and Colin is very much looking forward to training him.  Please note this photograph was taken during July 2017 before he had started his pre-training.
