A very attractive and good-moving unbroken three-year-old gelding by Passing Glance is offered for sale.
He is out of the Alflora mare Flora Joy, who might have been unraced but nonetheless hails from a good jumping family. She is a half-sister to the seven-time winner Al Alfa, who was rated 132 over fences, and Honeys Joy, who won a bumper for Willie Mullins.
Their dam Two For Joy was a sibling of the dam of Grade-1 winning chaser Ballycasey, whilst the further family features many notable names including the Grand National hero Royal Athlete.
The covering sire Passing Glance sired the tough-as-teak flat globetrotter Side Glance (winner of the Grp-1 Mackinnon Stakes, Grp-3 Diomed Stakes, Grp-3 Sovereign Stakes and over £1.7m in prizemoney), and has more recently gained plenty of admirers for his prowess as a NH producer.
Amongst his best progeny to date are the Grade-3 winning novice hurdler and exciting but ill-fated novice chaser Fountains Windfall, the Cheltenham Festival winner Attaglance, the high-class novice chaser Dashel Drasher (rated 145 and second to Champ last season), the Grade-2 placed hurdler Hint Of Mint and the promising 140-rated hurdler Millers Bank.
Although now something of a veteran at 21, these improving racecourse results have resulted in a heightened commercial interest in Passing Glance and his progeny. He returned to a career-high covering fee in 2019 - and remained at that figure this year - whilst his offspring have realised up to £45,000 in the auction ring within the past 12 months.
This youngster is blessed with a good pedigree, and the accompanying video evidence clearly demonstrates his physical qualities and how well he uses himself. All things considered he looks a very attractive proposition at the advertised price.
