Half-brother to the high-class Spirit Of Shankly
3yo bay gelding by Sulamani ex Lago D’oro
Purchased at the Doncaster Store Sale, this racy individual is right up there with the very best of the stores we have purchased in recent years, both in terms of physique and pedigree.
He is a son of the excellent Sulamani, the sire of Grand National winner Rule The World. He boasts a very impressive 50% winners to runners return with his National Hunt stock, an outstanding record that puts him ahead of the vast majority of leading sires including Robin Des Champs (46%), Kayf Tara (44%), Oscar (41%), Flemensfirth (40%) and Presenting (40%).
A third foal, he is a full brother to the very smart Spirit Of Shankly, a dual bumper winner at the age of four and subsequently successful over hurdles (three times) and fences, recording Racing Post Ratings of 138 in both spheres and twice reaching the frame in Listed company. The second foal, a filly by Black Sam Bellamy, won a point to point earlier this year and followed up in great style in a Chepstow bumper on heavy ground in March.
There are five winners in the second dam, including Lago D’Oro, and third dam is particularly strong, with a 153-rated, Grade 2 winner over hurdles and a 120-rated Group 2 winner on the flat, as well as a smart jumps mare.
It is a very strong pedigree, with both siblings, a first foal and then a filly, showing a strong level of form. He was exceptional value and will be aimed at the Doncaster Sales bumper at Newbury in March 2017.
