Dam Sire: TIGER HILL (IRE)
The seven-year-old winning hurdler Presenting Sun is offered for sale at £15,000.
A talented and genuine horse with no vices, he won at Downpatrick last year and was an excellent third at Sligo recently; he is priced competitively to sell.
Presenting Sun is by the great Presenting and out of the Tiger Hill mare Sunwake. The dam was the winner of a Naas maiden hurdle and placed over fences, and her other progeny includes the bumper and hurdles scorer Peters Cousin, also by Presenting.
Peters Cousin was an £80,000 buy at the Cheltenham November Sale in 2017, and a quick analysis of the extended pedigree reveals that this is a family of superb quality.
Sunwake's half-sister Shining Glory was a Listed winner, whilst her half-brothers Immortal and X Mark were Grade-3 and Listed placed respectively in Japan. The third dam So Sedulous produced five stakes winners amongst six winning progeny, including the outstanding Shirocco. He was a brilliant four-time Grp-1 winner, including the Breeders' Cup Turf, and has gone on to sire the Champion Hurdler Annie Power.
Clearly boasting blue-blooded credentials, Presenting Sun went through the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale ring as a three-year-old and fetched €40,000.
He would go on to run in point-to-points, before making his debut under rules in September 2018. He displayed his first sign of real promise on the track when fifth of 16 in a Wexford maiden hurdle in October 2018, an effort that contributed to an opening handicap mark of 93.
Although absent for the best part of a year subsequently, on his next appearance at Downpatrick in September 2019 Presenting Sun cruised to a comfortable success in a two-and-a-half mile handicap hurdle in the hands of Rachael Blackmore. It was a victory that hinted at more to come and, with several subsequent winners in behind, there was substance to the form too.
Presenting Sun ran just the once more last season, when unsuited by heavy ground at Fairyhouse, but his recent return at Sligo - where he travelled like the winner to two out - demonstrated that all of his ability remains intact. Indeed, after just seven career starts there is every reason to believe that the best is yet to come.
This superbly-bred individual remains competitively handicapped, has the scope to go over fences in the future, and retains a highly progressive profile. He seems sure to be adding to his winning tally soon; don't miss out at a competitive price!
