Dam: Back In Town (Ire)
Dam Sire: Bob Back (USA)
A very nice three-year-old filly by Doyen is offered for sale at £11,000. Currently standing 16hh, she has been driven in long reins, is a very correct filly with a great walk, and is open to all vetting.
She is out of the Bob Back mare Back In Town, who might have been unraced but boasts a good NH pedigree. Her only previous runner is the six-year-old Court Cave gelding Ourauldman, who was the winner of a Clonmel handicap hurdle for Henry de Bromhead in May 2019. He had previously auctioned for €36,000 at the Goffs Landrover Sale as a three-year-old.
Back In Town is a half-sister to the Listed-placed bumper performer Hannibal The Great, who went on to win a pair of novice hurdles, and a full-sister to the six-time winner Mostly Bob. The last-named enjoyed his finest hour when defeating the Grand National winner Mon Mome by four lengths in a class 2 handicap chase at Cheltenham.
Their winning dam Town Gossip was in turn a sibling of the Grp-3 flat winner T E Lawrence, the Grade-3 placed hurdler Meadow Vale and the very smart Montalcino. Trained by Venetia Williams, Montalcino was the winner of a Grade-2 novice hurdle at the Aintree Grand National meeting and later finished second in the Grade-1 Cleeve Hurdle. The one time 146-rated chaser Westerner Point has also emerged from this part of the family.
The covering sire Doyen enjoyed a fine 2019/20 campaign, when he was represented by the Grade-1 winning novice chaser Battleoverdoyen and the Grade-2 winning novice hurdler Andy Dufresne, both of whom are trained by Gordon Elliott.
It is also worth noting that Doyen has a strong record when matched with daughters of Bob Back. Numerous winners have emerged from the cross, including the 132-rated hurdler Harefield, the 127-rated chaser Rough Night and Shopping Around, who has won her last two starts in handicap hurdle company.
For his part, Bob Back is the outstanding damsire of such luminaries as Gold Cup winner Synchronised, Champion Chase hero Special Tiara and Grand National victor Many Clouds, amongst many others.
This strong and attractive filly has much to recommend her on paper and is sure to attract a good deal of interest. Please get in touch for further information.
