Date of Birth: 13 Feb 2016
Sire: Shantou (USA)
Dam: Couture Daisy (Ire)
An attractive and well-related four-year-old filly by Shantou is offered for sale at £5,000 - no VAT.
Now standing 16.1hh, this filly was broken in September 2019 before being turned away to mature; she is guaranteed untried and only being sold as her current owner is reducing stock numbers due to the current economic crisis.
A very athletic and clean-limbed type, she is out of Couture Daisy, who won a maiden hurdle as a six-year-old and was placed twice.
The mare has previously produced Tullyesker Hill, a full-brother to the filly for sale, who won a point-to-point, bumper and three-times over hurdles. He had been a £52,000 purchase at the Cheltenham May Sale as a four-year-old, prior to commencing his career with trainer David Pipe.
Tullyesker Hill's talent was underlined when he defeated the subsequent Grade-2 winner Junction Fourteen by a comfortable four-lengths at Newbury on his final racecourse appearance. He would surely have taken high rank had injury not curtailed his career.
Couture Daisy is a sibling of the Listed-placed Madulain Express, whilst further close relations include the outstanding French chaser Remember Rose. He won the Grade-1 Grand-Steeple Chase de Paris, the Grade-1 Prix Ferdinand Dufaure (beating Master Minded by eight lengths) and the Grade-1 Prix La Haye Jousselin, twice.
The sire Shantou, winner of the 1996 St Leger, has a well-earned reputation as a prolific producer of classy and reliable NH stock. His best runners include Grade-1 winners such as Death Duty, The Storyteller, Morning Assembly and Briar Hill, whilst he has also produced numerous other Cheltenham Festival winners such as Ballynagour, Beware The Bear and Tully East.
This filly is sure to go on and do well either under rules or in the pointing sphere, and she appears to offer exceptional value at the advertised price. Please get in touch for more details.
