Unnamed Brian Boru
A high-class chasing prospect
2012 bay gelding by Brian Boru ex Sheebadiva
A well-bred, good-looking four year old, he is a son of the very much underrated sire Brian Boru, whose progeny include Fox Appeal, Shotgun Paddy and Next Sensation, as well as this year’s Grade 1 runner-up Henri Parry Morgan.
Purchased privately last autumn, his half-sister was a first-time-out point winner before making £60,000 at the sales last year, whilst his full brother, Looksnowtlikebrian, is in training with us and is a horse that we feel is capable of progressing nicely through the grades this season.
He is out of a useful racemare (won 6 times, Racing Post Rating of 125), herself a half-sister to two useful performers in Summery Justice and Capote, so it is a very strong pedigree.
Broken in by his previous owners last summer, he was in training with us from February until the end of April, at which point he was turned away for a summer break. He will be ready to come into full training again in July and I would envisage starting him off in a bumper in October.
A tall, strong sort, he is a lovely prospect and, longer-term, looks every inch a classy chaser in the making.
