An unnamed four-year-old gelding by Phoenix Reach is offered for sale at £8,000 - share options are also available. He is trained by Micky Hammond in Middleham.
The dam Arctic Queen ran just a handful of times on the flat but has since developed into a prolific winner-producer. She has been matched with the sire Phoenix Reach on numerous previous occasions, and the partnership has resulted in three winners.
The produce in question are Gin And Tonic, a five-time winning hurdler, Newgate Queen, who won over a mile and a half on the flat as a three-year-old, and the useful juvenile hurdler Arctic Reach.
The last-named won by seven lengths on his hurdling debut, then finished an excellent second to the subsequent Grade-1 Triumph Hurdle and 'Fighting Fifth' Hurdle winner, and Champion Hurdle third, Countrywide Flame on his second start. Arctic Reach would win twice more that season, reaching a peak official rating of 138, and even ran in the Triumph Hurdle himself.
The sire Phoenix Reach won three times at the highest level when a globetrotting campaigner for Andrew Balding and has gone on to great success in his second career. He has been represented on the flat by Grp-1 winning two-year-old Elm Park and is a reliable source of winners over jumps too.
This unraced youngster has yet to have a name given to him, so it will be up to his new owners to decide on a suitable one. He is pleasing with his progression on the gallops and is a nice, scopey stamp of an individual, with a bright future ahead. Please get in touch for more details.
