The very well-related eight-year-old Micky Hammond trained gelding Swarez is offered for sale. Share options are also available.
Previously trained in Ireland, the son of Echo of Light has had a handful of runs over both hurdles and fences. He was not mature enough to realise his true potential earlier in his career and is consequently on a fantastic starting mark for when he gets his career in Britain underway.
Swarez is a half-brother to the 134-rated Willie Mullins trained hurdles/chase winner Pont Aven, out of the Kahyasi mare Behlaya. She is in turn a sibling of the Grp-2 winner and Grp-1 placed Behkara (dam of the Grp-1 Grand Prix de Paris winner Behkabad), the Grp-3 winner Bayrika, the Listed winner Behkiyra and the top-class hurdler/chaser Behrajan.
The last-named won the Grade-1 Tolworth Hurdle, the Grade-2 Cotswold Chase and was third in the Stayers' Hurdle during a stellar career for Henry Daly. Several other smart jumpers emerged from Behlaya's female siblings, notably the Grade-1 winning juvenile hurdler Barizan, the Grade-2 winning hurdlers Baradari and Ivan Grozny, and the stakes-winning French jumpers Behnasan and Bonne Eleve.
Clearly, Swarez boasts an outstanding pedigree and, starting from a basement mark, he looks a very exciting recruit and a likely type to run up a sequence. He is fit and ready to go as soon as racing resumes, and his work and schooling have been highly pleasing. Don't miss out!
