Flat Horses, 2018/19

Sunday Prospect:  Karl Burke

Sunday Prospect

Another horse bought in France, this time at the Osarus sale near Bordeaux, and also eligible for the valuable French premiums.  By the Japanese stallion Sunday Break out of a nine times winning and 15 times placed French mare, Green Shadow, from the Mr Prospector line.  Stood out physically at the sale as a strong type.

Sunday Prospect Chart

This horse unfortunately turned out to be very fragile and has only managed four races in three years, although he has always shown lots of promise.  All the owners have been incredibly patient and we were delighted when he won readily at Leicester over 1m 2f on 16th October 2018, under a great ride from Ben Curtis.


 

Chantresse:  Karl Burke

Chantresse

Classic Coolmore bloodline. Holy Roman Emperor has been European champion 2yo sire twice with best horse, Designs On Rome, having won almost £5m over 8-10f. The dam is related to a Coventry Stakes winner and a St.Leger 3rd, with 11 Listed / Group winners in the family, and produced Gr.3 winner Iveagh Gardens.

Chantresse Breeding Chart

As a big, late-maturing filly she was brought along steadily and, slightly to our surprise, has turned out to be more of a middle-distance horse.  She has been really game, genuine and consistent, although still has her maiden tag.  She has been in the first four in eight of her 11 races up to October 2018.  May head for the sales.
