This 5yr old smart bay gelding looks to be a shrewd purchase by Phil from Ireland in Jan. Iconic Figure has clearly loved the change of scenery and routine – he has just come a close 2nd first time out for us and is a sure improver with a handy looking handicap mark for some great summers fun over the flat season ahead at a steal for £4000 to stay in the yard. Phil’s words 8/3/18 – he’s not even ready yet, he hasn’t come in his coat yet, he’ll be a diferent horse in another 8 weeks’ – and he’s already made a great start.

Show Promise

Phil on ‘Show Promise’ who described him as a ‘gorgeous horse’ after riding him for the first time. High praise for Phil.

This good looking 16.1hh 4 year old gelding will be aimed at Newcomers bumpers this summer and has the build to make a hurdler and eventually a chaser. His half brother won his bumper first time out and has since won over  hurdles. His Dam is by Derby winner Glacial Storm and this will be her second runner. She is a half sister to a former 150 rated chaser ‘Well Refreshed’ and the 2nd Dam won a Listed race over hurdles – it’s a very nice pedigree and a good mix of speed and stamina. He’s in FULL WORK and can be seen in action.
