An unbroken four-year-old son of Brian Boru is offered for sale at £15,000.
This June-foaled store currently stands 16hh, and is yet to fill out and reach his full physical potential. When he does develop into the finished article, his pedigree indicates that an extremely exciting future awaits.
He is out of the top-class NH broodmare Trixskin, who might have been unraced but has made a significant impact on the breed as a producer, with all five of her offspring to have raced being winners. Her first foal was the exceptional Willie Mullins-trained bumper performer Cousin Vinny, who famously won the Grade-1 Weatherbys Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival, before following up in the equivalent Grade-1 at the Punchestown Festival.
A rare talent, Cousin Vinny went on to finish third in the Grade-1 Royal Bond Novice hurdle behind the great Hurricane Fly on his hurdling debut, and he would have won the Grade-1 Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown on the bridle, but for unseating his rider at the last.
Other smart animals to emerge from Trixskin include the Listed-placed chaser A Good Skin, whilst her 2014-foaled Getaway gelding Vinnie's Getaway sold for €60,000 at the Derby Sale and is now going places for trainer Olly Murphy. He won his point-to-point, landed a bumper by 12 lengths and was a promising second on his novice hurdling debut.
The extended family is one of exceptional merit, and includes the Grade-2 Kennel Gate Hurdle winner and Grade-1 placed Hidebound, the Scottish National hero Four Trix and even the outstanding Imperial Commander, winner of the Gold Cup (where he defeated Denman and Kauto Star), Ryanair Chase and Betfair Chase.
The sire Brian Boru looks a fine match for this impressive tail line. A Racing Post Trophy and St Leger winner for trainer Aidan O'Brien, his reputation for producing tough mature chasing types continues to grow.
He has an enviable strike rate of 53% NH chase winners to runners and his long list of classy progeny includes the Grade-2 winners Sub Lieutenant, Bold Sir Brian and Fox Appeal, the Cheltenham Festival winner Next Sensation and the Grade-3 Classic Chase winner Shotgun Paddy.
This young horse is blessed with a fine pedigree and the looks to match; don't miss out on his enormous potential at a competitive price.
