Shares are available in the winning four-year-old gelding Istanbul Pasha. He is trained in the superbly-appointed Devon yard of Victor Dartnall.
A tough and consistent performer, he showed promise in nine runs at two, mainly on turf. He was placed twice at Redcar in competitive autumn contests, demonstrating an ability to act on soft ground.
Istanbul Pasha was swiftly into his stride in 2018 and broke his maiden in fine style on the Kempton Polytrack in January. He followed up with a second on the Southwell Fibresand and ran on another four occasions on artificial surfaces before being granted a well-merited rest. He was on a mark of 57 after his Kempton victory but is back now on a handy-looking 52.
Istanbul Pasha has a pace-filled pedigree. His sire Fast Company was a top-class juvenile before becoming noted for injecting plenty of speed into his crops. Notable progeny include classic performers Devonshire and Jet Setting.
The dam Red Red Rose was sired by Piccolo, winner of the Nunthorpe and King's Stand Stakes before embarking on a distinguished stallion career, during which he specialised in sprinters.
Istanbul Pasha will reappear on the track in October, refreshed by a break of six months. He is primed to give connections plenty of action and fun. Why not take a slice of it?
