Kingmaker Racedays are thrilled to offer 4% lease shares in the ultra-consistent four-year-old gelding Almurr. He is trained in North Yorkshire by former top jockey, and now up-and-coming second season trainer, Phillip Makin, who bought him from the sales for 18,000gns in October 2018.
A son of Dandy Man, Almurr was originally an 85,000gns yearling purchase and sent into training with Brian Meehan. He finished runner-up in a very hot Newbury maiden on his second appearance at two, finding only the subsequently Grp-2 placed Confiding too good, before going on to win a six-furlong novice at the same track on his next start.
Clearly very well thought of, Almurr was soon plying his trade in a higher grade. He ran with credit in Listed company at Ascot and a £300,000 Sales race at Doncaster, despite being drawn on the wrong side of the track. He rounded out his two-year-old campaign with a short head second at Nottingham.
Gelded and moved to Phillip's yard ahead of his three-year-old season, Almurr did not find the progress that was expected of him and subsequently struggled for a period. This is a very common experience for horses at that stage of their careers, and as a consequence he soon found his mark dropping to an attractive level.
His rating slipped from 81 at the start of 2019 season all the way to the low 60s at the turn of this year. He finally started showing some of his old spark prior to winning off a rating of 62 on his first run as a four-year-old at Wolverhampton in January.
Only given a 3lb rise in the weights for that success, Almurr ran with credit on his next two starts and has the potential to win plenty more races as he moves back up the ratings.
With Coronavirus sadly putting a stop to racing soon after, Almurr has been given a nice break, has continued to strengthen and is now fully ready to go as soon as racing resumes.
Almurr is a very genuine, tough and versatile horse who handles turf and varying AW surfaces, and will be campaigned at six to seven-furlongs. He will no doubt be winning races in the near future off his very lenient-looking handicap mark.
Due to the current restrictions and social distancing guidelines preventing owners visiting the races, we are offering this syndicate at an introductory price of only £110 per month for a 4% lease share. This is an all-inclusive contract for 6 months, with no buy in fees to pay and no extra hidden costs. So why not get involved with our excellent value for money, friendly syndicate with payments only starting when racing resumes!
