Dam: Grangeclare Pearl
Dam Sire: Old Vic
Our first National Hunt horse Benny's Bridge with Fergal O'Brien has been terrific fun, finishing third in the 2018 Goffs UK £50,000 Spring Sales Bumper and winning TWO competitive and valuable handicap hurdles at Cheltenham in 2019. He was a great find at the Doncaster Store Sales last year, so why wouldn't we go back and attempt to repeat the success? As well as purchasing another horse for Fergal O'Brien, we bought this tremendous gelding by Arcadio and added the great Nicky Henderson to our training roster. This 5yo is extremely athletic, with good breeding, conformation and a very good attitude to his work.
This gelding is by the rising star National Hunt stallion Arcadio, who was a high-class middle-distance winner in Germany and a successful sire of Flat racing progeny. By the successful sire of NH sires Monsun (Shirocco and Network), he is now also better known as a sire of hardy and classy National Hunt stock, his biggest money spinners being the Grade 1 Aintree Novice Chase winner Flying Angel, 13-time winner (including at Graded level in chases) The Game Changer who has amassed earnings of over £270,000, and Grade 3-winning chaser Go Conquer. This gelding also comes from a wonderful National Hunt family. His dam Grangeclare Pearl showed ability for trainer Willie Mullins and was placed an excellent and close 4th of 16 on her racecourse debut in a bumper at Killarney. She is a full-sister to the high-class and triple Grade 3-winning hurdle Grangeclare Lark, also a half-sister to the very smart Grade 2-winning hurdler Scarthy Lad. This gelding is the mare's first progeny and all the signs are that he will continue the excellent form of his esteemed pedigree.
Nicky Henderson has described him as a fantastic-looking and really lovely horse with a good brain. He has shown plenty of ability in his work but Nicky is adamant that he needs decent ground, especially after his debut when he was given an easy time due to the very deep conditions. Sadly, good ground has been rare during the extremely wet winter just past but we now look forward with excitement to a productive summer campaign with him.
