Dam: Place In My Heart
Hot To Trot was founded in 2010 by bloodstock agent Luke Lillingston and Sam Hoskins with the aim of providing an affordable alternative to Racehorse Ownership at the highest of levels but for an affordable cost. 2017 saw that dream realised when Hot To Trot's flying two-year-old filly Heartache scored in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot much to the delight of the 75-strong membership who had all paid just under £2,000 to be involved!
For 2018 'Hot To Trot II' will lease an incredibly exciting group of six two-year-old's, including Heartache's two-year-old half-sister called 'Heartwarming.'
2018 Hot To Trot II Team
HEARTWARMING (2016 filly Showcasing / Place In My Heart) - a daughter of the hugely exciting young stallion SHOWCASING, sire of top-class sprinters QUIET REFLECTION and TASLEET. Second foal of the Clive Cox-trained Listed-winning and Group 3 placed Place In My Heart - her first foal being dual Group 2 and Royal Ascot winning filly Heartache. If she is half as good as her sister then we are in for a very exciting season with her! She is bred/owned by Whitsbury Manor. Lambourn-based Clive Cox will also train this filly.
PLUM DUFF (2016 filly Showcasing / Lady MacDuff) - another daughter of SHOWCASING and the first foal out of LADY MACDUFF (Iffraaj), an 87-rated half-sister to the Group 1 Prix De L'Abbaye winner GILT EDGE GIRL and the Group 2 Flying Childers winner GODFREY STREET. She is a very athletic filly who is owned/bred by Heartache's breeders', Whitsbury Manor Stud, and she should make up into a midsummer 2yo. She will be trained by Quiet Reflection's trainer, Karl Burke, in North Yorkshire.
KURIOUS (2016 filly Kuroshio / Easy To Imagine) - very attractive filly by the very fast first season sire KUROSHIO, a son of the leading sire EXCEED AND EXCEL who raced in Australia for Godolphin. She is out of EASY TO IMAGINE, a very good mare who has already produced two leading sprinters in the shape of the Group 1 Prix De L'Abbaye winner TANGERINE TREES and the Listed-winning ALPHA DELPHINI. This is all the more amazing considering both TANGERINE TREES and ALPHA DELPHINI were by cheaper stallions in MIND GAMES and CAPTAIN GERRARD respectively. She is bred/owned by Mrs Marie Matthews and it is very exciting to have her. She will be trained by Henry Candy from Kingston Warren, near Lambourn.
SHORTER SKIRT (2016 filly Showcasing / Heading North) - SHOWCASING is a young sire really making a name for himself. Standing at £35,000 for 2018, most people would consider themselves lucky to be racing one of his progeny, let alone the three that we have been lucky enough to get our hands on! This filly is a very strong and precocious-looking sort out of the Listed-placed TEOFILO mare HEADING NORTH who hails from the family of the Coventry Stakes winner ROCK CITY. She will be trained by Eve Johnson-Houghton based in Didcot, Oxfordshire.
LOLLYPOP LADY (2016 filly Garswood / Nola's Lolly) - by the hugely tough and consistent GARSWOOD, a son of DUTCH ART whom Richard Fahey trained to win the Group 1 Prix Maurice Du Gheest at Deauville. She is out of the stakes-placed mare NOLA'S LOLLY who has already produced five winners from five runners to date including the Listed-winning and Group 2 placed HOLY MOLY. Let's hope LOLLIPOP LADY can keep up the record! She was bred/owned by Mrs Judy Maitland-Jones not too far from Manton and we are excited to have her. She will be trained by Brian Meehan at the historic Manton Estate in Wiltshire.
ANNECY (2016 filly Swiss Spirit / Atheera) - SWISS SPIRIT has made a fine start to his career to stud, boasting a winners to runners strike rate of over 40% with his first crop in 2017. This filly is a full-sister to one of those in AWSAAF, a talented if exuberant colt for Simon Crisford. This filly's dam ATHEERA is a grandaughter of the 1,000 Guineas winner MEHTHAAF which is the same family as the crack miler of 2017 RIBCHESTER. She is bred/owned by Lordship Stud who also bred/part-own her sire SWISS SPIRIT and it is great to be involved with both them and this filly. She will be trained by David Simcock, based in Newmarket, the home of Flat horseracing
