Flat Horses, 2017/18

Sunday Prospect:  Karl Burke

Sunday Prospect

Another horse bought in France, this time at the Osarus sale near Bordeaux, and also eligible for the valuable French premiums.  By the Japanese stallion Sunday Break out of a nine times winning and 15 times placed French mare, Green Shadow, from the Mr Prospector line.  Stood out physically at the sale as a strong type.

Sunday Prospect Chart

This horse has unfortunately turned out to be very fragile, only managing two runs so far.  In mid-2017 he really raised our hopes, finishing a good 2nd at Doncaster.  Will hopefully return later in 2018.  Timeform also thinks he has lots of potential:  “Suited by emphasis on stamina;  will stay at least 1m;  will go on improving”.


 

Chantresse:  Karl Burke

Chantresse

Classic Coolmore bloodline. Holy Roman Emperor has been European champion 2yo sire twice with best horse, Designs On Rome, having won almost £5m over 8-10f. The dam is related to a Coventry Stakes winner and a St.Leger 3rd, with 11 Listed / Group winners in the family, and produced Gr.3 winner Iveagh Gardens.

Chantresse Breeding Chart

As a big filly, she has been brought along steadily with three runs as a 2yo over 6/7 furlongs.  Ran well on her pipe-opener at Nottingham and should improve considerably once stepped up in trip.  A good-looking type, when she has wins on her back, could easily be a valuable broodmare prospect.  Lots to look forward to.
