Date of Birth: 09 Jun 2020
Sire: GEORDIELAND (FR)
Dam: NOT NOW NELLIE (GB)
Dam Sire: SADDLER'S HALL (IRE)
A striking grey yearling filly by Geordieland is offered for sale. She is fully vaccinated and has no vices.
The dam Not Now Nellie was unraced but has developed into an accomplished NH broodmare. She is most notable for producing the David Pipe-trained bumper, hurdles and chase winner Close House, who was Grade-2 placed as a novice chaser and had earlier finished fourth to Simonsig in the Grade-1 Baring Bingham Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Not Now Nellie's other offspring include River Tyne, a full-sister to the filly offered for auction who won a point-to-point in 2019 before going into training with Dan Skelton. River Tyne sold for £50,000 when offered at the 2019 Tatersalls Cheltenham Festival Sale, whilst Close House changed hands for 100,000gns as a four-year-old.
This talented family extends back within a few generations to the Grde-2 placed hurdler Potters Cross, the Grade-2 winning chaser Major Rumpus, and even the Champion Hurdle winner Morley Street.
The covering sire Geordieland was a high-class middle-distance performer in France in his youth, who later graduated to the highest class as a stayer in Britain. His CV includes Grp-2 wins at a mile-and-a-half, mile-and-three-quarters and two-miles, two Listed triumphs, as well as three placed finished in the Grp-1 Ascot Gold Cup.
Now resident at Beech Tree Stud, he has posted impressive results since his first runners emerged onto racecourses in the 2017/18 NH season. His best performer to date is the one-time 140-rated triple winner Geordie B, trained by Venetia Williams, though a string of other promising types have been coming through in recent months to bolter the sire's profile.
These include the dual winner Straw Fan Jack, who was sixth in Grade-1 novice hurdle company at the Aintree Grand National meeting this year, the maiden hurdle winner Buckhorn George, who finished second to the top-class Sporting John earlier in his career, and the unbeaten bumper winner Geordies Dream.
The alliance between Geordieland and Not Now Nellie has already proven successful once before, and there seems little reason to believe that this smashing filly will be any different. Despite her exciting pedigree credentials and the fiscal track record of her full-sister, she is offered here in a very competitive price bracket.
