The consistent mare Nanny Makfi is offered for sale. She is trained by Brian Barr in Dorset, who would be delighted to keep her in the yard. If she does remain with her current stable then a reduction in training fees will be offered.
Nanny Makfi was second in a seven-furlong nursery as a two-year-old, and placed in four of her six starts over middle distances at three. She was lightly-raced in 2017, but has demonstrated she retains her ability since, notably when finishing second at Exeter on just her second outing over hurdles.
In total she has finished placed on seven of her 17 starts, and her flat mark of 49 looks particularly lenient, whilst she is completely unexposed over hurdles and has more to offer. She is entirely sound, but did not race over the summer months as she has a marked preference for soft ground.
Her consistent profile, versatility and superb temperament should ensure that her new owners will get plenty of fun and excitement out of her. She is a good ride and also an imposing and impressive 16hh and very nicely made.
Such physical attributes indicate that she will carry a foal in time, and there is unquestionably breeding potential with Nanny Makfi when you glance at her pedigree. She is out of the multiple Listed-placed Pan Galactic, from a Juddmonte family that traces back to the Grp-3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes winner and sire Tralos and the US Grade-3 winning and Grp-1 placed Polemic.
Meanwhile her sire Makfi is tipped to do very well in the broodmare sire division in the future, and his commercial appeal in that department is evidenced by the fact his useful daughters Vintage Folly and Maimara sold for 600,000gns and €520,000 respectively at recent auctions.
With plenty more racing ahead of her, and breeding potential too, Nanny Makfi looks an absolute bargain at the advertised price. She is open to any vetting/inspection by appointment.
