The highly thought of four-year-old Hallowed Crown gelding Benandgone is offered for sale. He has shown promise in his only start so far and is expected to get off the mark soon; price on application.
Trained in Dorset by Brian Barr, this big, strong and imposing sort has been given time to strengthen and mature, having been based with current connections since the yearling stage.
He has thrived for this patient approach, and now stands over 17.1hh and is correct in every way.
Benandgone had one educational run at the backend of last season at Wincanton, where he displayed obvious greenness and inexperience, yet there were unmistakable signs of promise too.
Although having to make his own running was not ideal on the heavy ground, he was still in front at the two pole and was not beaten far in fifth. Furthermore, the form of that race is strong, with the winner running in Grade-2 company next and the runner-up having since won a bumper and over hurdles.
He came back with sore shins and a bit of a snotty nose, clearly showing his weakness at the time, but the experience certainly wasn't lost on him. He has now had the summer off and is even bigger and stronger, and is expected to win a bumper in the autumn.
Benandgone is out of the Dynaformer mare Peaceful Soul, who has previously produced a pair of winners who have combined to land 20 races between them. She is in turn a sibling of two black-type earners, and the extended family features numerous other stakes performers.
The covering sire Hallowed Crown was a Grp-1 winning miler in Australia who retired to stud under the Darley banner, and he is now stamping his stock with size and quality.
Although his eldest Northern Hemisphere progeny are only four, he has already demonstrated himself to be a smart flat stallion. Notably, his daughter Colette thrived for a step up to middle distances when winning the Grp-1 Australian Oaks.
However, of even greater significance is that his first runner over jumps, the Noel Meade trained Jeff Kidder, was a star of the 2020/21 NH season, winning the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival, a Grade-2 at Fairyhouse and the Grade-1 Champion Four-Year-Old Hurdle at Punchestown.
In addition to physical scope and an eyecatching pedigree, Benandgone has the most wonderful way of going and is a very laid back character.
