A strong and correct three-year-old gelding by Soldier of Fortune is offered for sale.
This striking individual really fills the eye and is just the sort to be kicked on with shortly. Bumpers or a juvenile hurdling campaign are amongst the options open to him in the near future.
He is the second foal out of the Multiplex mare Jessies Delight, who is an unraced half-sister to the high-class dual-purpose performer Junior. During an extraordinarily varied career, Junior won the Kim Muir over fences at the Cheltenham Festival, the Grade-2 Winter Novices' Hurdle at Sandown, and even the Ascot Stakes on the level at Royal Ascot.
Another of Jessies Delight's siblings produced the Grade-3 winning hurdler Davids Charm, whilst the next generation of the family features half a dozen black-type performers, including the Grade-2 winning chaser Celtic Son and the Listed-winning French hurdler Lunar Path.
With so many noteworthy near-relations and as a daughter of a promising broodmare sire, Jessies Delight has to be considered a NH producer of significant potential. She also has a 2017-foaled son of Milan and a year younger full-brother to the gelding for sale; she awaits her first runner.
The covering sire Soldier of Fortune also adds enormously to the appeal of this youngster, with the Beeches Stud resident one of the most sought-after NH sires currently in service.
A host of exciting horses have represented him over jumps in recent times, such as the Grade-1 winning juvenile hurdler Mega Fortune and the Cheltenham Festival-winning hurdler and Galway Plate hero Early Doors.
Furthermore, the sire's progeny are proving enormously commercially popular and are currently the height of fashion coming out of the pointing field. Just last month, his four-year-old son City Chief made £210,000 at the Tattersalls Cheltenham May Sale, having won an Irish point-to-point, whilst another of his offspring with a similar background realised £90,000 at the same auction.
This fantastic three-year-old gelding has exemplary pedigree credentials, as well as all the physical characteristics one could wish for. He clearly has a bright future ahead of him and looks a first-rate prospect; please get in touch for more details.
