Dam Sire: Inchinor (GB)
The final share remains available in a three-year-old gelding by Bollin Eric. He is trained by Neil King of Ridgeway Racing, who is based at Upper Herdswick Farm on the Marlborough Downs, which boasts outstanding private facilities.
Neil bought this horse on spec as a two-year-old, viewing him as a good long term investment, and nothing he has seen since has dissuaded him of that opinion.
This youngster is a good size, standing at 16.2hh, and he looks sure to make up into a decent jumper in time. He is already a mature sort of horse, and was broken in after a winter out at grass and is now continuing his development towards the racecourse. A good mover, he will hopefully be running in bumpers during the 2018/19 season.
He is out of the Inchinor mare Aoninch, who was a three-time winner over middle distances on the flat and later finished fourth in a Listed hurdle at Huntingdon. As a broodmare she has been represented by three horses on track, most notably the useful Legend Lady. She was the winner of a Taunton bumper on racecourse debut before finishing sixth in the Listed mares bumper at the Aintree Festival, and she would later win and place over hurdles. Furthermore, Inchinor is a noted broodmare sire of numerous Grp-1 winners such as Power, We Are and Curvy on the flat and Stakes performers over jumps.
The next dam produced the hurdles and chase winner Kimberley, whilst the third dam Sugar Cookie was responsible for numerous winners including the Grp-3 Sagaro Stakes winner Travel Mystery, who also won the Imperial Cup over hurdles.
The sire Bollin Eric was a strong stayer on the track and won the Grp-1 St Leger in 2002. He has long since proven himself a solid NH sire. His progeny are tough, genuine and sound and they often stay very well.
This youngster has a stout pedigree and an exciting future. He is for sale to stay at Ridgeway Racing with the last 25% share remaining available for £5,000 + vat.
