Borders trainer Katie Scott is offering shares in the consistent sprinter Rockley Point.
A six-year-old son of Canford Cliffs, Rockley Point was in terrific form last season, winning sprint handicaps at Hamilton (six-furlongs) and Catterick (five-furlongs). He was also second three times, enjoying a particularly profitable spell of form towards the end of the flat turf season.
Previously campaigned at up to a mile and a quarter, the drop to sprint trips and soft ground have enabled Rockley Point to recapture his best form. His two recent victories have seen his handicap mark ascend to 56 on the turf (he is rated 58 on the AW), but as he was rated as high as 78 earlier in his career, there remain strong grounds for thinking that he is still competitively handicapped.
Deeper investigation of his profile reveals just how much back class Rockley Point possesses. On two-year-old debut he finished a close-up third behind the subsequent Grp-2 Coventry Stakes winner and sire Buratino and the multiple Group-winner and 2018 Stewards' Cup scorer Gifted Master. He continued to run with credit as a two and three-year-old, winning a seven-furlong Chelmsford maiden in October 2016, before a downturn in fortunes as a four-year-old.
That spell in the doldrums preluded his move to Katie and her dedicated team, based in Scottish Border country. Although better known for her exploits with jumpers, Katie demonstrated in 2018 just how adept she is at placing horses on the level too.
A hard working and happy yard, you can be sure that if you were to take a share in a horse trained by Katie you would not just be treated as any other owner, but invited to get as involved as possible. This upwardly mobile and growing team will ensure that you derive the very most possible out of the ownership experience.
At just six years of age, Rockley Point is only now approaching the peak age for many sprinters, and he looks sure to provide connections with endless fun and excitement next summer. A 100% sound and clean-winded horse, he runs regularly, is rarely out of the money, and can be yours for a bargain basement price. Don't miss out!
