The unbroken three-year-old Scorpion gelding Silvers Shadow is offered for sale.
A well-bred individual who is ready to be broken in, he has started to lunge and has taken to it well. He has plenty of bone and is a big and strong type with lots of spirit. He is open to vetting.
Silvers Shadow's dam Silver Carousel was the winner of a point-to-point and is a half-sister to the chase winner Bohemian Rock. Their dam Karolina was a winning full-sister to the outstanding Katarino.
Trained by Nicky Henderson, Katarino won the Grade-1 Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival by eight lengths and the Grade-1 Champion Four-Year-Old Hurdle at Punchestown during a stellar juvenile campaign. He later reinvented himself as a specialist over the Aintree Grand National fences, twice capturing the Fox Hunters'.
Silver Carousel is by Silver Patriarch, and a notable product of one of the few previous trysts between his mares and Scorpion was Scorpiancer. The winner of a Ludlow maiden hurdle for Rebecca Curtis, Scorpiancer later graduated to the highest level in the US, winning three Grade-1s over timber, collecting an Eclipse Award for Champion American jumper and earning over $600,000 in prizemoney. He provides a fine example of the potency of the nick that Silvers Shadow represents.
Scorpion now resides at Shade Oak Stud and is firmly established as one of Britain's premier NH stallions. He has provided a host of top-class names, such as the King George winner and Gold Cup runner-up Might Bite, the Grade-1 Ascot Chase victor Riders Onthe Storm, the Grade-1 winning novice hurdler Don't Touch It, and the Grade-2 winning novice hurdler Derrinross.
His progeny continue to prove commercially popular, and have realised up to six figures at public auction on numerous occasions in the past.
Silvers Shadow is an exceptional individual with lots of class, and there is a real depth of quality to his pedigree too. He rates a superb prospect for the future; please get in touch for more details.
