Feralkat is a 4 year old half-sister to the Grade 1 winner, The Liquidator and Grade 2 placed Allycat, she is out of a winning dam whose sister was also a Listed winner, whilst she is by Schiaparelli who is the son of the champion sire Monsun.
She won her maiden Irish point-to-point at Moig South in County Cork on 3rd November this year on soft ground, where she was delivered with a well-timed challenge in between the final two fences, and swiftly got the better of chief rival quite immediately to pull a length and a half clear by the winning post.
She was trained by Denis Hogan, and the last horse we bought off him was Thomas Macdonagh, who bolted up in his novice hurdle for us last week…..and he highly recommended this mare to me.
We have already sold one share – she is a gorgeous mare and think she’s incredible value, and obviously has residual value as a broodmare after her racing career.
The ongoing monthly bills would come to £500 per 20% share and that would look to cover all bills associated with the training and upkeep of the partnership – all the vat will be reclaimed and repaid to the partners.
She has the size, scope and pedigree to reach the very top level and is a hugely exciting horse to go to war with.
He is a cracking looking 4 year old gelding by Fame and Glory and out of a black type winning mare, who was a half-sister to the useful 2m jumper Total Success and bumper/2m hurdle winner Master
He made his debut in a bumper which we actually won with College Oak, and he finished a respectable 5th. They quite fancied him as he went off at 4-1 but he proved quite green and didn’t look to handle the soft ground that well. They then ran him 10 days ago at Catterick in a very competitive race. He was also 5th that day but he should have almost won had a decent jockey been on board – he held him up at the back of a 15 runner field, then made his move too soon and was challenging 4 furlongs from home and despite getting tired, he still managed to finish quite well.
I think that this horse will benefit from running through the spring on some better ground, where he could rack up a sequence in the same manner as Some Day Soon did for us. I have managed to secure him for £20k +vat (the vat is reclaimable) which includes vetting and transport.
This good-looking gelding is by Dylan Thomas who was the outstanding six-time Group 1 winner including the Arc. Dylan Thomas has had an immediate impact as a jumps stallion where his progeny includes the 6-time winners Nuts Well and Peter the Mayo Man among others.
He is out of an unraced half-sister to the smart bumper/hurdle/chase winner Promalee and Michael Mor from family of the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Little Owl. The dam has had two winners from three runners, including the five-time winner, Secrete Stream.
He has been backed and ridden away over the summer and is an athletic scopey individual. He has a pedigree to be a cracking 3 mile chaser and he has the physique to match.
This attractive filly by a new sire who won both the Group 1 St. Leger and the Ascot Gold Cup. This filly is a half brother to this years Cheltenham Festival winner, Croco Bay, and also to our very own three-time winner, Thistle Do Nicely who I look forward to sending novice chasing this season as I believe he could be very exciting.
She will be backed and ridden away over the summer and come into training in the autumn. She has a wonderful pedigree and is a lovely filly to add to the team. She is qualified for the €100,000 Sales Bumper at Fairyhouse, April 2020.
