Nominations are available to Hedgeholme Stud's Stewards' Cup winning stallion Intrinsic. His first crop of two-year-olds is awaited with anticipation this year.
A six-furlong maiden winner for Sir Michael Stoute, Intrinsic blossomed when transferred to the care of Robert Cowell as a four-year-old. He stylishly won a pair of handicaps for his new yard prior to lining up for the ultra competitive and prestigious Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood in August 2014.
In a field of 24 he was delivered with a tremendous surge inside the final furlong to win by a length, despite drifting in the closing stages. In the process, Intrinsic unquestionably confirmed himself a sprinter of pattern level ability, despite it only being a handicap, as his victims included the Listed winners Ninjago and Hallelujah, the Grp-3 winners Sir Maximilian and Arnold Lane, the Grp-2 winners Muthmir and Blaine and the dual Grp-1 winner Borderlescott.
Retired the year after that career highlight, Intrinsic has spent the last three seasons standing at Hedgeholme Stud and remains there at a fee of £1,750 for the 2019 season.
There is little doubt he boasts a stallion's pedigree. A son of Oasis Dream, who has confirmed himself a stallion-maker of serious renown thanks to the exploits of Showcasing and others, Intrinsic hails from a tremendous family on the distaff side.
A Cheveley Park home-bred, he is out of the Grp-3 winning and Grp-1 placed mare Infallible, whose other offspring include the dual Grp-2 winner and multiple Grp-1 placed Mutakayyef, the Grp-3 winner Intimation and the Grp-3 winning and dual Grp-1 placed Veracious.
Intrinsic offers an economy route into some serious blue-blood. His first crop is set to hit the racecourse in the coming weeks and months and there is every chance his reputation will be on the up in short order.
