The new Partnership horse

The new Partnership horse

imageWe do have a number of shares remaining to join this new partnership which will begin on July 1st, the price per share is £2250 for year 1 and £1250 for subsequent years. Please email pippakirby@icloud.com for full details with no obligation. This horse impressed us with his  Correct conformation, depth through his girth, strong & correct limbs and  athletiscism on the move. Although his dam line  is flat biased, it is a strong Group winning Family, the 1st and 2nd dams being prolific producers of winners , and the sire Beneficial is a really strong stamina influence. His dam DANDRINA is a 3 time winner and has bred 4 winners from 4 runners including Daisy Fay, a 3 time winner of jumps in France by flat stallion Dubawi. The second dam DIASPRINA was 2 year old  champion of Germany in 1998, and bred 12 foals, 12 runners and 11 winners, amongst these 7 flat group winners or placed. The gelding looks to have the essential mix of speed and stamina and we can’t wait to get him back home and start breaking him in. He has the most fantastic nature in the stable and behaved impeccably in the sale ring and parade ring.

A third purchase was a well bred Westerner filly out of the Silver Patriarch filly ‘Janebailey’ , dam of 1 runner, 1 winner to date, the 3x winning gelding ‘Scorpiancer, a Listed winner over hurdles in the USA who sold at the Cheltenham sake for £200,000 after winning his point to point. She is a most attractive filly and looks forward enough to train for bumpers in the coming NH season.

The trolley was full enough at this stage but one of the last lots of the day really caught the eye, a tall and imposing son of Robin des Champs   who wouldn’t be much smaller than our Transient Bay. This gelding offerred by Glenview Stud is the first foal of French mare Jimble, a daughter of the dam of prolific Grade 1 and 2 scorer, Magnaninity. The  next dam bred Grand National winner Amberleigh House. He looks a magnificent chasing model for the future by the sire of Vatour and Quevega, and was bought by Phil for his parents who attended the sale with us.
