Sire: MALINAS (GER)
Dam: FLAMING PONCHO (IRE)
Dam Sire: ACCORDION (IRE)
A strong and attractive four-year-old filly by Malinas is available for sale.
She is out of the lightly-raced Accordion mare Flaming Poncho, who ran a handful of times in bumpers and once over hurdles. She has since produced Sea Forever, a daughter of Stowaway who won a two-and-a-half-mile handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter in November 2019 for Fergal O'Brien.
Flaming Poncho's half-brother Garruth was a high-class hurdler who won the Grade-1 Martell Sefton Novices' Hurdle at the Aintree Grand National Meeting, whilst her full-brother Friend's Amigo was a Graded-performer over hurdles and fences.
Adding lustre to this filly's prospects is Accordion's status as an accomplished NH broodmare sire. His daughters are responsible for countless smart jumpers, most notably the Champion Hurdle hero and Grade-1 winning chaser Faugheen.
The covering sire Malinas is another extremely positive addition to the page. Runner-up in the German Derby during his racing career, he has since developed into an extremely assured source of high-class NH stock. His best runners to date include the Grade-2 winners Mister Malarky, Black Thunder, Touch The Eden and Medinas, whilst he has previously combined with an Accordion mare to produce the talented San Rumoldo. Owned by J P McManus, he won a bumper on his racecourse debut and was a winner over hurdles on his most recent start.
Clearly blessed with enticing pedigree credentials, this cracking individual has the physical characteristics to match. She appears to offer excellent value; please get in touch for further information.
