Lambourn trainer Mark Usher is delighted to offer shares in a beautifully-bred two-year-old filly by Footstepsinthesand. She will race for the Ridgway Partnership.
Mark purchased this rangy yearling filly at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. Her sire was an unbeaten 2,000 Guineas winner and this filly hails from the extended family of the outstanding miler and top-class sire Polish Precedent.
She is out of the unraced mare Sveva, who has already produced three winners from three foals to have raced. Her dam Crafty Example produced eight winners from nine runners, most notably the 1998 European Champion Older Horse and Grp-2 (then) Queen Anne Stakes winner Intikhab. Now a leading sire, you can view some highlights from his brilliant career by following the first link below.
Adding further promise to this pedigree is the identity of the damsire, Danehill Dancer. The late stallion is now a leader in the broodmare sire field, having been represented by such horses as the seven-time Grp-1 winning superfilly Minding, triple Grp-1 winner Alice Springs and dual Grp-1 winner The Gurkha.
The filly is entered in the £150k Tattersalls October Sales race run at Newmarket this Autumn.
Ten shares are available at £2,000 per tenth share to cover her purchase and all costs until the 30th April 2018, then £210 per tenth share per month from the 1st of May 2018 until the end of October 2018.
Mark is pleased to offer a discount of £160 if the entire account to 31st October 2018 is paid before the 31st March 2018. The initial £2000 can be paid in three instalments via any credit or debit card.
