Dam Sire: Exit to nowhere
An unbroken three-year-old filly by Arvico is available for sale. This clean-winded and attractive filly stands 16hh and is lunging well and displaying a great attitude. She is nicely bred and is an ideal candidate for either racing under NH rules or the point-to-point field. She is out of the unraced Exit To Nowhere mare Marabunta, who has previously produced the twice-placed hurdler Red Story, by Kayf Tara.
Marabunta hails from a tremendous NH family, with her winning dam Mansonienne being a full-sister to the exceptional Bilboa.
Bilboa was trained by Francois Doumen to win the Grade-2 Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton, the Grade-2 Glenlivet Anniversary 4-y-o Novices' Hurdle at Aintree (defeating Azertyuiop) and the Grade-3 Prix General de Saint-Dider Hurdle at Enghien (beating Jair du Cochet). She was also Grade-1 placed on numerous occasions, including when third in the 2002 Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Bilboa has gone on to similar levels of success as a broodmare, producing numerous winners including the Listed-wining hurdler Enjoy It and the Grade-3 placed chaser The West's Awake.
The Grade-2 Pendil Novices' Chase winner and Grade-1 placed Makounji was another sibling of Mansonienne, and she in turn foaled the Listed-winning chaser Roulez Cool. Furthermore, just one generation further back we find the Grp-1 placed flat performer and later high-class jumps sire Mansonnien.
Adding to the appeal of this filly is the identity of her sire. Arvico was a high-class dual-purpose performer during his racing career and has long since established himself as a highly capable NH sire.
His list of smart progeny includes the Willie Mullins trained four-time Grade-1 winning chaser Arvika Ligeonniere, whilst more recently his name has been put back in the spotlight by Dreal Deal. The latter was a remarkable success story during the 2020/21 NH season, elevating his mark from 84 all the way up to the mid-140s, and winning the Grade-2 Moscow Flyer Novices Hurdle on the way. Although Arvico passed away in 2018, his stock continue to prove commercially popular, as evidenced by one of his sons making €30,000 at the Goffs Land Rover NH Sale in June.
This strong and attractive individual is blessed with an eyecatching pedigree and carries plenty of potential moving forwards. Please get in touch for more information.
