Date of Birth: 16 Apr 2015
Sire: Lucarno (USA)
Dam: Sovereign's Gift (GB)
Dam Sire: Elegant Monarch
A four-year-old Lucarno gelding is offered for sale. A sibling of useful winners, he is the fourth foal of a winning Elegant Monarch mare and has all the makings of a talented performer in his own right.
The dam Sovereign's Gift was a consistent sort over hurdles, winning over an extended two miles at Newton Abbot under Richard Johnson in June 2003 and placing a further six times. Since her attentions were switched to breeding she has produced five foals, including this fine specimen by Lucarno.
Her best runner to date is the three-time winner Cadeau George, who scored in the pointing field prior to winning over hurdles and fences under rules and ascending to a career-high rating of 132. Indeed, when winning a Ffos Las handicap chase and finishing second at the same venue a few months later for trainer Ben Pauling, he posted Racing Post Ratings of 139 and 142 respectively, to confirm himself a very useful performer.
The only other runner out of Sovereign's Gift to date is the three-time point winner Alright John, as a filly out of the mare was struck by lightning which prevented her from making it to the track.
Lucarno won the 2007 St Leger when trained by John Gosden and is developing a good reputation as a source of tough and hardy jumping stock, despite having passed away prematurely last year. The 2018/19 season was something of a breakout campaign for the stallion, with Monbeg Worldwide winning a pair of novice hurdles in the famous Gigginstown House Stud silks prior to running well in Graded company, Darlac finishing second in the Grade-2 Winter Novices' Hurdle and Drole D'Histoire taking a Listed hurdle at Auteuil.
Such results confirm that the best is yet to come from Lucarno, and he has plenty of young stock emerging that will add to his legacy in the seasons to come. As the attendant video and pictorial evidence confirm, this four-year-old is one such promising individual.
