An exciting opportunity to join a brand new syndicate offering the possibilty of owning a potentially top sprinter in PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH.
The four-year-old gelding is the son of top class sire DUTCH ART who has produced Group 1 winning sprinters such as Garswood and Slade Power.
He made a perfect start to his racing career when winning on his only two-year-old run, a Class 4 maiden at Haydock. Racing in midfield he showed a smart turn of foot to cut through the field and run out a ready 1 1/4 length winner. Overcoming inexperience he proved to be an exciting prospect.
Despite a nine-month break, PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH picked up where he left off, making a winning return, this time in a Class 4 (0-80) three-year-old handicap. Again settled off the pace, he travelled strongly and despite running a little keen made impressive headway whilst others were toiling. He picked up well when asked and showed an electric turn of foot to make it two from two.
Having been strong at the finish he was stepped up to 7f but failed to prove effective that day with possible questions over the trip. Dropped back to 6f at Leicester, he bounced back to form and could be seen as a little unfortunate. It paid to be on the pace that day and despite travelling the best throughout the race he just couldn't rein in the winner. Two more runs followed but these were below par before finishing his three-year-old season.
He ticked all the right boxes as we looked through the HIT sales and despite coming from one of the top trainers, WILLIAM HAGGAS, we felt there was untapped potential. Feeling that PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH may make a bit more than we could afford, we where not only pleasantly suprised but delighted to secure the gelding for just 20,000 Guineas.
PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH is now in training with KEVIN RYAN and has settled in well in his new home. With an official rating of 82, we feel there is plenty of room to manouvere and he is at an age where sprinters can flourish. Off his current mark he will be competing in good races straight from the off but would only need a couple of good performances to see him progress into top handicaps. He has shown he is a strong traveller with a nice turn of foot. Lightly raced, he is open to further improvement and, as he goes into his four-year-old career, he will be a lot more street wise and mature to tackle the races we will be hopefully aiming at.
We are very excited to teaming up with KEVIN RYAN who's record with sprinters is second to none, having trained FOUR GROUP 1 WINNERS. Among his resume are multiple Group-race sprinters and a top class record in heritage handicaps, especially the Ayr Gold Cup which he has won four times.
PENNSYVALNIA DUTCH should give his owners plenty of fun and hopefully some good days out. We are very excited about what could lie ahead next year and look forward to meeting some like-minded people to join our new venture.
