Date of Birth: 12 Mar 2017
Sire: Walk In The Park (Ire)
Dam: Captain Supreme (Ire)
Dam Sire: Captain Rio (GB)
A well-bred three-year-old filly by the much sought-after sire Walk In The Park is offered for sale at £9,500. She has recently been driven in long reins and has just been backed; she is a good mover and open to any vetting.
Described by Timeform as 'the National Hunt Stallion Star of Tomorrow', the 2005 Derby runner-up Walk In The Park's leading performers to date include Douvan, Min and Walk In The Mill, to name just a few.
All of the above were conceived when the sire was based in France and operating at an extremely lowly covering fee, so there is every reason to expect even greater returns in the future. He now stands for Coolmore at Grange Stud in Ireland.
This view has been emphatically underlined in the auction ring, with his fillies in great demand at the recent Goffs Land Rover Sale, whilst his stores have already sold for up to £135,000 in 2020.
The dam of this filly, Captain Supreme, was unraced but hails from an exceptional and versatile family.
She is an own-sister to the Grade-2 placed bumper/hurdles performer Allure of Illusion, and a half-sister to the Listed Flat winner Diamond Hill, the Grade-1 placed hurdler Mt Leinster and the top-class Blackstairmountain, all of whom were or are trained by Willie Mullins.
Blackstairmountain won the Grade-1 Champion Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival, the Grade-1 Racing Post Novice Chase at Leopardstown and even the enormously valuable Grade-1 Nakayama Grand Jump in Japan.
Both of Captain Supreme's first two runners were winners, with Higgs winning two novice hurdles in 2018, whilst New Age Dawning won twice from just three starts for David Pipe and achieved a highly meritorious official rating of 133. The mare's progeny have realised up to €34,000 in the sales ring in the past.
This cracking youngster hails from an excellent family, which must surely continue to improve with time, and she should make a super breeding prospect when her racing days are over. She is extremely realistically priced for a filly of such quality; please get in touch for more information.
