Dam Sire: SHERNAZAR (GB)
A strong and impressive three-year-old filly by Westerner, currently standing 15.3hh, is offered for sale.
This February 2018 foal is out of the Shernazar mare Drumderry, who was trained by Willie Mullins to win a Galway bumper by nine lengths on her racecourse debut and later won a mare's bumper at Cork. She went on to run in Graded company and made one appearance over hurdles.
Her attentions have subsequently been switched to breeding and she has been represented by a handful of runners to date, most notably the six-year-old Getaway gelding Charlie Siringo. Trained by Noel Meade, he was placed on numerous occasions before winning a Downpatrick maiden hurdle by five-lengths in mid-June, and can surely continue to add to the page in the future.
Drumderry also has young stock waiting in the wings by Leading Light, Doyen and Court Cave, in addition to this lovely filly by Westerner.
The extended family is one of genuine quality, as Drumderry's line traces back within a few generations to the outstanding Champion Chase winners Viking Flagship and Flagship Uberalles, and a good number of black-type horses under both codes adorn the page.
The covering sire Westerner was an outstanding stayer during his racing career, securing his legacy by winning five times in Grp-1 company, including the Gold Cup when it was run at York, and finishing second in the Arc.
He has stood at Castle Hyde Stud since 2007 and remains one of the most enduringly popular NH stallions in operation. His most noteworthy progeny include the World Hurdle (now Stayer's Hurdle again) winner Cole Harden, the Ladbrokes Chase hero Total Recall, the Grade-1 winning chaser Gilgamboa and the Arkle victor Western Warhorse.
It is also important to relate that he has a good reord when matched with Shernazar mares. The 135-rated bumper and dual hurdles winner The Linksman and the two-time hurdles winner Reilly's Minor are among the small but select numer of horses to represent the nick.
This very attractive filly possesses compelling pedigree credentials and has an exciting future in the short and longer-term. Please get in touch for further details.
