Sire: Heeraat (IRE)
Dam: Cool Chron (GB)
Dam Sire: Polar Falcon (USA)
An attractive yearling filly by Heeraat is offered for sale by Paul George Racing, based in Devon.
Paul made a lightning start to his training career when sending out a Lingfield double in early August, and has continued to impress with both flat and jumps runners in the intervening months.
This filly is out of the Polar Falcon mare Cool Chron, who stayed a mile and won at three years of age. Although no superstar on the track Cool Chron has already exhibited an ability to upgrade her offspring significantly. Her two winning progeny comprise the Italian Listed-scorer Troppo Bello and Ballea Fox, who has won over hurdles in Ireland this year.
The extended family features numerous high-class performers, such as the 2,0000 Guineas winner Tap On Wood, whilst Polar Falcon is the damsire of dozens of Group-winners, including top-level victors Fascinating Rock, Echelon, Araafa, Red Bloom, Krypton Factor, Isfahan and Always In Charge.
The sire Heeraat was a useful two-year-old that progressed to win the Grp-3 Hackwood Stakes over six-furlongs as a four-year-old. He was retired to Mickley Stud in 2015 and has been represented by his first runners this year, with several shrewd judges nominating him as a young sire to follow. His trainer William Haggas noted publicly his excellent temperament, and the Dark Angel/Green Desert cross he represents has already produced the good young sire Lethal Force.
Heeraat’s early runners have shown promise, with half a dozen individual winners to his credit already, and they are proving tough and durable and capable of taking lots of racing. However, as a sire that improved markedly with age during his own racing career, it is also exciting to contemplate what his stock will do as they continue to progress.
This filly has an appealing pedigree and is in the capable hands of a very promising young trainer. Don’t let her slip your grasp!
