Date of Birth: 08 Mar 2014
Sire: Sakhee (USA)
Dam: Flintwood (GB)
Dam Sire: Gunner B
An attractive four-year-old daughter of Sakhee out of a successful broodmare is offered for sale, due to the sale of her owner's farm.
Although unbroken and untried, this mare nonetheless possesses the pedigree to make her of significant interest. She stands approximately 16hh and has lots of potential.
The dam Flintwood was an unraced daughter of the leading stallion Gunner B, whose progeny include such luminaries as Grade-1 Champion Hurdle winner Royal Gait and the Grade-1 Stayers' Hurdle winner Iris's Gift. She is also a half-sister to the very smart chaser Stagecoach Pearl, who ascended to an official rating of 152 and was Grade-2 placed over fences.
Flintwood has given a few foals that have raced, notably the successful point-to-point performer Stagecoach Jasper. A winner between the flags, he also demonstrated lots of ability on his rules debut when finishing third in a bumper at Catterick behind the subsequent 139-rated chaser Special Catch. Another one of her offspring, namely Woodyoulikeme, was a short-head runner-up to the subsequent Grade-1 Neptune Novices' Hurdle fourth Chatterbox on his bumper debut. Unfortunately, that was the only time he ever raced.
The sire Sakhee was an Arc winner during his racing days and is a Grp-1 flat stallion who has produced such jumpers as the Grade-1 winning hurdler Grumeti.
Clearly, Flintwood is a mare that can impart ability to her progeny. That makes this youngster a very interesting proposition at such a bargain price.
Note: Current owner willing to purchase a share should the new owner wish to syndicate the mare.
