The Definite Article mare Definitely
Rory is offered for sale. An attractive and well-related
individual, she is currently in foal to the Irish
National Stud-based stallion Elusive
Pimpernel. Price on application.
Definitely Rory ran just once over hurdles during her racing career, but nonetheless hails from a smart family. She is a half-sister to the talented and versatile Unhinged, who ran to a useful level in winning on the flat, over hurdles and fences, and earned well over £100,000 in win and place prizemoney.
Their dam Classic Silk, a multiple winner on the flat and over hurdles in her own right, would also produce the hurdles winner Follow A Star and the 90+ rated multiple flat scorer Sean Og Coulston.
The family can be traced back to numerous black-type performers,

division at present thanks to the exploits of Grade-1 winners such
as Champ and Great

It is also worth noting that the sire's progeny have created a
real impression in the sales ring too, auctioning for figures
including €260,000, £185,000 and £180,000 within the last three
