2015 Chestnut Gelding 

This 3-year-old gelding is by the same sire as Yanworth and out of a sister to the three-time Gold Cup winner, Best Mate, and the Grade 1 winning hurdler Cornish Rebel, as well as the multiple winner Inca Trail.

He is being backed and ridden away over the summer and will come into training in the autumn. This chap has lovely paces and looks a smart type. His pedigree looks to have a great combination of both speed and stamina, and he is qualified for the £50,000 DBS Bumper at Newbury in early March 2019.

Redbridge Gold

2013 Bay Filly by Gold Well - Marikala

I bought this lovely mare at the Tatts Ireland Ascot sale called Redbridge Gold.  She put in the fastest time of the day to win her maiden Point-to-Point at Lingstown on 11th March on soft ground. The report commented "REDBRIDGE GOLD (IRE) quickened from the second last and she readily asserted from the final fence."

You can view her winning on the link below:

Her brother won a bumper whilst her dam is a sister to the prolific flat winner Marilaya who was the dam of the smart 2m Grade 2 winning chaser, Maralan. There is plenty of black type littered through her pedigree both on the flat and over jumps and being by Gold Well she will be a valuable broodmare in time herself.

We bought Scorpion Sid from this sale last year and he has won two novice hurdles this season and is rated 135.  Redbridge Gold is an absolutely cracking mare and looks like she'll be capable of winning her bumper before taking higher order over hurdles next winter.

2013 Bay Gelding by Black Sam Bellamy - Taqreem  

This hugely exciting 5yo gelding is by the wonderful sire Black Sam Bellamy (sire of World Hurdle favourite, Sam Spinner and our class 2 Scottish National festival winner, Naranja to name a couple).  He is a half-brother to 5 winners including Another Moment who won a bumper and is now an 85 rated flat horse, and 2-mile hurdle winner, Jayed.  His dam is a half-sister to Ibn Bey who was 2nd in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.  He has a wonderful blend of both stamina and speed.

Thomas MacDonagh was placed on both his Irish Points in the autumn and also placed in an Irish Bumper this spring.  He is a physically imposing individual as he is 16'3’ with plenty of strength and scope – a proper staying chaser. 

He made a very pleasing debut at Dromahane where he finished 3rd in a strong race.  He improved on his next start when 2nd to Blackjack Kentucky (now with Paul Nicholls).  The horse who finished 4th (17 lengths behind) that day has recently been placed in a Huntingdon bumper.  He was then given a break and returned under rules where he ran a cracking race to be a close 4th in a bumper at Tipperary.  He looked in need of the run as his race-fitness told inside the final furlong but he ran right through the line and has a lovely willing attitude.
