Category: Unraced horses
Date of Birth: 12 Mar 2016
Sire: Sholokhov (Ire)
Dam: On The Horizon (Ire)
Dam Sire: Definite Article (GB)
A four-year-old filly by the leading NH sire Sholokhov is offered for sale at £5,000. She stands 16.2hh, has been broken and ridden, and is now cantering upsides and jumping a pole.
She looks an ideal type for British point-to-points and is open
to all vetting.
This impressive filly is out of the Definite Article mare On The Horizon, who won a mile and a quarter maiden for Dermot Weld and has since compiled an impressive breeding record.
Her four winning progeny include Minella Mojo, the winner of a handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter in September of last year and M M D Sizer, who impressively defeated Ravenhill in an Irish point-to-point before winning a maiden hurdle from just three starts under rules.
On The Horizon's progeny also boast impressive statistics in the auction ring, with her stock selling for figures including €80,000 and €52,000.
These numbers can be attributed to the significant quality of
the family, as On The Horizon is a sibling of the US Grade-2 winner
Wait Till Monday and the Grp-3 C L Weld Park
Stakes heroine Token Gesture. The last-named would
go on to produce the Grade-1 winner Relaxed
Gesture and the Grade-2 victor Evolving
Even more crucially, the same branch of the family is also responsible for a whole host of top-class jumpers. Further siblings of On The Horizon include the Grade-1 Triumph Hurdle winner Rare Holiday and the Listed flat winner and Grade-1 placed hurdler Blazing Spectacle.
Meanwhile, On The Horizon's winning half-sister Monumental Gesture is dam of the brilliantly talented Grade-1 winning and Champion Hurdle placed Rhinestone Cowboy and Wichita Lineman, a Grade-1 winning novice hurdler who also memorably won at the 2009 Cheltenham Festival under AP McCoy. The Grade-1 winning chaser Coney Island is another near-relation.
The covering sire Sholokhov is best known for being the sire of the 2016 Gold Cup winner Don Cossack, though the exciting Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner Shishkin has put him back in the spotlight this year. His influence is sure to blend nicely with the quality of this excellent tail line.
This attractive filly has a fantastic profile and is offered at a very competitive price. Please get in touch for more details.
