The well-related six-year-old gelding Mello Grey is offered for sale. Price on application.
Standing 16.3hh and out of a black-type mare, Mello Grey has shown plenty of ability in a couple of starts in point-to-points and now looks a fine prospect to go under rules and continue his development.
He showed up particularly well in a hot maiden at Milborne St Andrew point-to-point in Dorset in February, only giving way just before the last and then unluckily stumbling and coming down when booked for second.
The highly-regarded winner Velasco - who was in receipt of 21lbs from Mello Grey - was subsequently offered at 95k at the Cheltenham Sales in February, and the race was run in a time 17 seconds faster than the previous division.
Mello Grey went into notebooks as a certain future winner on that occasion, but the cancellation of all racing has brought his career between the flags to a premature end. However, his prospects under rules look exceptionally bright.
His sire Kheleyf might be far better known for his exploits on the Flat, but he has made his mark over jumps as the sire of Grade-1 winning novice hurdler and chase scorer McKinley and the smart French hurdler Kheyfun.
Mello Grey's dam Molly Mello was a prolific winner and Listed-placed in Germany, and has produced three winners under rules to date. These include the useful flat stayer and dual hurdles winner Brunston. The extended family is littered with black-type winners.
Mello Grey is a terrific prospect with an exciting
long-term future. He is currently based at Hillgrove Stud
