Point Of Principle
An exciting Junior Bumper prospect for 2016/17
3yo bay gelding by Rip Van Winkle ex L’Ancresse
A good-looking, strong individual, this son of the exciting young sire Rip Van Winkle is out of the Irish Oaks winner L’Ancresse, and hails from an exceptional family.
This exciting bumper prospect is a half-brother to a dual Listed winner on the level and to two other winners, one of those over hurdles.
His sire, Rip Van Winkle, is a son of the champion sire Galileo and has made a fine start to his career at stud in his own right, especially other a trip, with his progenty boasting an 18% strike-rate when racing over 1m4f+.
He looks the perfect candidate for junior bumpers, the first of which takes place in mid-October. We will therefore look to give him a good break, before coming into training in mid-July.
There are plenty of options for him in bumpers during the autumn/winter campaign, notably the Listed Junior Bumper at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day, and we will certainly have that in mind if he can make a winning debut for us this autumn.
