Sire: Geordieland (FR)
Dam: Drop The Hammer (GB)
Dam Sire: Lucky Story (USA)
A well-handled two-year-old gelding by Geordieland out of a Lucky Story mare is offered for sale.
A good mover who has already been broken, this smashing individual loves being ridden and has a superb temperament. He has shown some pace at home and looks to have a very bright future ahead.
His dam Drop The Hammer was a talented dual-purpose performer, who was sharp enough to finish second over seven-furlongs at Newcastle on her two-year-old debut, and later won three times on the flat at up to two miles as a three and four-year-old.
Her focus was briefly switched to jumping, and she proved herself equally adept at the winter game by winning a two mile two-furlong novices' handicap hurdle at Sedgefield as a five-year-old.
More recently Drop The Hammer has produced various progeny by the crack stayer Geordieland, including this superb colt, and her early runners have suggested she can go on to be a successful broodmare. She has one runner who has made a nice start to his career on the flat in Australia, whilst her seven-year-old son General Probus was fourth behind the subsequent Grade-1 winning chaser Sporting John in an Exeter novice hurdle on his racecourse debut in 2019. He switched to the Olly Murphy stable last season and showed promise in three starts.
Drop The Hammer is out of the dual-winner Paperweight, whose second dam Crystal Bright produced four winners, including the dual Grp-3 winner and Grp-1 1,000 Guineas third Crystal Gazing.
The last-named went on to produce the dual Grp-3 winning and Grp-1 placed sprinter Conroy, whilst other classy operators to emerge from this branch of the family include the Listed-winner Elegiac, the Grp-3 victor Killybegs and Freed From Desire, who won a Listed race in Sweden earlier this year.
Adding to this youngster's appeal is the bright start that Geordieland has made to his stallion career. Both of the Beech Tree Stud resident's flat runners in Britain have won, whilst his exciting young stock emerging over jumps include the 140-rated Venetia Williams-trained hurdler Geordie B and the 138-rated dual winning hurdler Straw Fan Jack. This very nice individual has really thrived in recent months and can make up into a lovely horse in due course. Please get in touch for more details.
