Dam Sire: COZZENE (USA)
The winning eight-year-old Fastnet Rock gelding Butterfield is available for auction.
He is sold sound, having run most recently on the 28th of April, and is good to shoe, travel etc. He has been seen to windsuck; viewings are welcomed.
A beautifully-bred individual, Butterfield is out of the black-type earning mare Cozzene's Angel and counts amongst his six winning siblings the dual US Grade-1 winner and successful sire Toccet. Other winning siblings include the triple-winning Galileo gelding Agreement, who began life in training with Aidan O'Brien, whilst the near family features dozens more black-type performers.
Unraced until the age of five, Butterfield immediately displayed a good level of ability, finishing third in a mile-and-a-quarter novice event at Goodwood on his racecourse debut. He soon developed into a consistent middle-distance/staying handicapper and posted back-to-back victories on the AW at Wolverhampton in December 2019/January 2020.
In the first of those Wolverhampton races Butterfield defeated no less than three subsequent winners, yet despite having only raced a handful of times in the interim, he now finds himself on an attractive-looking handicap mark.
Butterfield is a generally consistent performer, who acts on both turf and AW and can be campaigned over a variety of distances. Having been so sparingly raced as a younger horse he no doubt has plenty more to offer going forwards.
