Sire: WALK IN THE PARK (IRE)
Dam: IN THE PICTURE (IRE)
Dam Sire: DAYLAMI (IRE)
An unraced four-year-old filly by Walk In The Park is offered for sale.
Although broken in and named Silver Bullet Babe, she has yet to run due to point-to-points being cancelled as a result of Covid and as the ground had gone unsuitably hard. She unquestionably remains an exceptional prospect, however.
Silver Bullet Babe is out of the lightly-raced Daylami mare In The Picture, who realised €110,000 when sold as a foal before running a couple of times in the famous JP McManus silks. The reason for In The Picture's rare value is that she is a half-sister to the great Harchibald, who thrilled NH fans with his performances in the two-mile hurdle division around 15 years ago.
Harchibald won five Grade-1s, including the Christmas Hurdle and Fighting Fifth Hurdles twice, and was runner-up in a memorable renewal of the Champion Hurdle itself in 2005, when he famously didn't come off the bridle until after the last. He ultimately retired with 14 victories and over £500,000 in prizemoney to his credit, and his place in jump racing folklore assured.
The covering sire Walk In The Park is also developing into a marquee name within NH racing, such is the impact the 2005 Derby runner-up has had as a stallion. Now standing at Grange Stud, having begun his covering career in France, Walk In The Park is responsible for the likes of Douvan, Min, Koshari and Walk In The Mill, to name just a few. Furthermore, his young stock are now incredibly sought-after when sold at public auction.
After one winning start in an Irish point-to-point, his son Jonbon made headlines when selling for £570,000 in November 2020, whilst another of his point-winning progeny Ginto sold for €470,000 the same month. Indeed, half-a-dozen of the sire's offspring have realised €200,000 or more in the past 12 months, which is an extraordinary statistic for a NH sire.
Silver Bullet Babe hails from a tremendous family and is by a blue-chip sire who is the height of fashion. Despite all that she is offered in an extremely competitive price bracket; please get in touch for more details.
