The recently retired Black Sam Bellamy mare Reivers Loge is offered for sale as a broodmare prospect.
The eight-year-old Reivers Lodge was a talented performer during her racing career for trainer Susan Corbett. She won a handicap hurdle at Kelso in 2017 and then added another success on what proved to be her final appearance at Perth last summer.
A consistent and versatile individual, she was placed on numerous other occasions, effective from two to three miles and, although she preferred decent ground, also handled it significantly softer.
Such traits seem sure to stand her in good stead in her new career as a broodmare, and she certainly has a pedigree which indicates she should be a success. Reivers Lodge is out of the Definite Article mare Crystal Princess, so is therefore a half-sister to the high-class Harambe, who was placed in a Grade-2 bumper as a youngster and last season plundered the prestigious Grade-3 Greatwood Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Crystal Princess is herself a half-sister to the nine-time winner, including twice in Grade-2 company, Bags Groove, whilst the next generation of this impressive family features the 1996 Gold Cup hero Imperial Call.
Adding to the appeal of Reivers Lodge is the identity of her sire, Black Sam Bellamy. A Grp-1 winning full-brother to the incomparable Galileo, Black Sam Bellamy went on to become a highly accomplished NH sire. Although he sadly died in 2018, he is only just now starting to make his mark as a broodmare sire, though the early signs are that he will take high rank in that sphere too. Amongst his first handful of representatives are the Grade-3 placed hurdler Sir Valentine and the dual Grade-1winning novice hurdler and Grade-2 winning novice chaser Reserve Tank. Reivers Lodge is a young broodmare prospect who combines a winning racecourse record with excellent pedigree credentials.
