A four-year-old gelding by Indian Haven, with an excellent temperament, is offered for sale.
This correct and well-built youngster is out of the Kris mare Kryssa, who was a four-time winner on the track. She is a half-sister to the Grade-2 winning novice chaser and Listed-winning hurdler and bumper performer Modus. This is a pedigree that combines a blend of flat speed and the durability required to produce high level NH stock.
The second dam Alessandra was a stout stayer who finished fourth in the Listed Cheshire Oaks, whilst the extended family includes the Grp-1 winners Patavellian and Avonbridge.
Kryssa has made a good start to her career as a broodmare, already producing two winners on the flat and a consistent winning pointer.
Her five-year-old Hymn And A Prayer, by Eastern Anthem, has finished third in two of his three bumpers, most recently in a decent contest at Newton Abbot on the 16th May. He will continue to run in bumpers during the summer and will surely be adding to the family's list of winners shortly.
The sire Indian Haven won the Grp-1 Irish 2,000 Guineas and is an underused NH sire. He has produced numerous multiple winners over obstacles, such as the 142-rated Sleepy Haven, the hurdles and chase winner Pullyourfingerout and the seven-time winning chaser Indian Voyage.
This gelding is currently unbroken but is well handled. He looks an ideal type for breaking this summer with a view to getting going this coming winter. He is 15.2hh and has the scope to develop further into his frame and is a lovely prospect going forward.
