A two-year-old colt by Finjaan out of the Indian Ridge mare Winner's Call is offered for sale. He is trained by the legendary Mick Easterby from his Sheriff Hutton base in North Yorkshire.
A precocious colt, who is showing plenty at home, he is cantering away every day and doing everything that is asked of him. The mare was unraced, but has already produced three winners, most notably the prolific Prophet's Pride, who won 12 races at up to two miles in France and was capable of competing in Listed company. Her other offspring include the eight-time winner and 84-rated Call Out Loud, who is best served by seven-furlongs.
Her top-class sire is a great of the broodmare sire division, his mares producing a host of Grp-1 winners such as Excelebration, Kingsgate Native, Airwave, Romanised, Dolniya, Halfway To Heaven, Lancaster Bomber, Reel Buddy and Dancing Rain.
The sire of this youngster, Finjaan, was a high-class juvenile who won the Grp-3 Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and was beaten just a short head in the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes. He later confirmed his versatility and longevity by winning the Grp-2 Lennox Stakes over seven-furlongs as a three-year-old, and running to a high level until the age of seven.
From just two crops of racing age, he has confirmed his ability to produce a smart horse despite limited opportunities. His best winners to date include the Listed winner Pachinaaj and the three-time winner Samovar.
The combination of Finjaan and Winner's Call promises to produce a smart and speedy individual, and the early signs are that this colt has inherited all of the characteristics you would look for in a young racehorse. A good looker in the most capable of hands, don't miss out!
