Dam Sire: INSAN (USA)
The clean-limbed and easy to do seven-year-old NH mare Lemon Hill is offered for sale at £7,500. Her current owner is selling to reduce string numbers during the current economic climate.
A daughter of the increasingly influential jumps sire Ask, Lemon Hill is out of the unraced Rezoned. The dam is a half-sister to the Grade-3 placed hurdler Royal Signature, the Grade-3 placed chaser Sam Adams and the high-class Snoopy Loopy. The last-named famously won the Grade-1 Betfair Chase in 2008, from a field featuring such luminaries as Kauto Star and Exotic Dancer.
Rezoned, whose progeny have realised up to €27,000 in the auction ring, produced one runner prior to Lemon Hill. Named Great Boss, he was third to the subsequent Grade-1 Supreme Novices' Hurdle victor Cinders And Ashes on his hurdling debut. Meanwhile, her relatively unheralded sire Insan has made his mark as a broodmare sire of note. His daughters have produced the triple Grade-1 winning chaser Last Instalment and the Grade-3 winning staying chaser Perfect Candidate, amongst others.
Lemon Hill had displayed promise in the Irish pointing field prior to making her rules debut in a two-mile maiden hurdle at Lingfield in January of this year. She would finish a well-beaten fifth on that occasion, and subsequently had her palate cauterised.
The procedure led to immediate improvement, as she went on to finish a creditable 15l fifth at Sedgefield in March, on her only start since, when upped to two-and-a-half miles. She would have finished closer but for a couple of slow jumps.
Lemon Hill is a lovely mare who is now just one run away from receiving a handicap mark. She should be up to winning in handicap company at some point in the future; alternatively, she looks an ideal type to go back down the point-to-point route.
Don't miss out on this cracking unexposed mare, with a very appealing NH pedigree.
