The four-year-old Dragon Pulse filly Clonard Abbey is offered for sale. Placed on the track and from the near family of Jet Setting, she retains plenty of breeding potential.
Clonard Abbey was trained by Gordon Elliott to finish third in a seven-furlong Ayr novice on her second racecourse appearance as a two-year-old in 2018. She has been lightly-raced subsequently and has been campaigned at up to a mile and a quarter. After three slightly below par runs in 2019, she could be well-handicapped based on her initial promise, should new connections wish to pursue that avenue.
There is also no doubt that she could make a smart broodmare. She is out of the Acclamation mare Redily Acclaimed, who is in turn a daughter of the Listed-winning Pivotal mare Plume Rouge. One of Redily Acclaimed's siblings, the winning Johannesburg mare Maen Lae, would go on to find fame as dam of Classic heroine Jet Setting.
Jet Setting was a talented but far from extraordinary two-year-old, who found enormous improvement in the care of Adrian Keatley when she turned three.
She broke her maiden at Cork, won the Grp-3 Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial, and then defeated the exceptional Minding in the Grp-1 Irish 1,000 Guineas, all within the space of five weeks in the spring of 2016. She went on to win the Grp-3 Concorde Stakes by six and a half lengths, as well as selling to China Horse Club for a cool £1.3m.
Clonard Abbey's sire Dragon Pulse is another useful addition to the page.
A Grp-2 winner and Grp-1 placed on the track, he has made a positive start to his stallion career since his first runners emerged in 2016. Although too young to have impacted the broodmare sire division, his noted prowess with fillies suggests he can do so in due course. His long list of smart female offspring includes the Grp-2 placed Magical Fire, the Listed-winner I'll Have Another and the Grp-3 placed Light My Fire.
Clonard Abbey is a well-related and attractive filly, with racing or breeding potential. She looks to be competitively priced and provides buyers with a range of options going forward.
