Date of Birth: 18 May 2017
Sire: Gatewood (GB)
Dam: Lady of Doonbeg (IRE)
Dam Sire: Definite Article (GB)
A yearling colt by Gatewood out of an unraced daughter of Definite Article is offered for sale.
The dam Lady of Doonbeg is out of Short And Sweet, who was a useful jumper, winning a bumper, a hurdle and over fences. A couple of generations back we find the Grade-1 placed chasers Tempo and Phariwarmer.
Gatewood was a very smart middle distance horse for trainer John Gosden, winning at Royal Ascot and later twice in Grp-3 company. As a son of Galileo he retains great potential for a stud career and his first foals were born last year.
Expectations can be heightened for this youngster as his damsire is Definite Article. Not only is he a leading NH sire, but he is also the broodmare sire of last season's Grade-1 winning novice chaser Great Field.
This colt is available for just £4,000 and do please note that the vendor would be more than happy to help the purchaser with transporting the yearling.
