Date of Birth: 06 Feb 2016
Sire: Geordieland (FR)
Dam: Pems Gift (GB)
Dam Sire: Environment Friend (GB)
A well-related three-year-old grey filly by Geordieland is offered for sale.
She is out of the unraced Environment Friend mare Pems Gift, who has produced two winners to date, most notably the hurdle and four-time chase winner Mick The Jiver, who was rated 130 at his peak.
Pems Gift also has three winning siblings of her own, and is closely related through her second dam to the exceptional staying hurdler Iris's Gift. The dashing grey was trained by Jonjo O'Neill and won 14-times in total, including the Grade-1 Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham, defeating all-time great Baracouda in the process, the Grade-1 Martell Cognac Sefton Novices' Hurdle at Aintree and four times in Grade-2 company. This excellent NH family traces back to the exceptional but ill-fated Browne's Gazette, winner of the 1984 Supreme Novices' Hurdle.
Pems Gift 's progeny have enjoyed sales ring as well as racecourse success. The aforementioned Mick The Jiver was a €23,000 purchsae as a three-year-old, whilst her 2011 and 2013 Apple Tree geldings fetched €38,000 and €31,000 respectively.
The sire of this youngster, Geordieland, was a high-class stayer on the flat, winning several times in Grp-2 company and placing a remarkable three times in the Grp-1 Ascot Gold Cup. With his eldest crop having just turned six, it remains early days for him as a stallion, but early signs are encouraging.
His only two runners on the flat in Britain have both been winners, whilst his small but select team of offspring that have raced under NH rules includes the 133-rated novice hurdler Geordie B. An impressive winner of a Hereford bumper on his only outing last season, he got off the mark over hurdles at the third attempt when accounting for Samburu Shujaa by four lengths at Lingfield in January.
The runner-up has won twice and increased his rating by 11 pounds in the interim, hinting at just what an exciting prospect Geordie B might be.
This filly has a storied NH pedigree and is the product of a mating between an improving sire and a quality mare with commercial appeal. She looks priced to sell fast, don't wait to act!
