Date of Birth: 18 Feb 2020
Dam: Madam Cloud
Dam Sire: Cloudings
A quality yearling filly by leading NH sire Scorpion is offered for sale. This attractive individual is out of a point-winning mare and there is a genuine reason for sale.
She is out of the Cloudings mare Madam Cloud, who was sparingly raced when in training with Tim Easterby but placed twice from a handful of starts over hurdles. She had earlier won a Dawstown point-to-point in Ireland by a distance, with subsequent winners under rules in behind.
Madam Cloud is a full-sister to the chase winner Model Cloud and a half-sister to the useful Spider's Bite. He is the winner of a bumper and over hurdles, ascending to a peak official rating of 132 in 2018. He was still in training last season and can no doubt add to the page again in future.
It is encouraging to note that Spider's Bite is by Scorpion, sire of the filly available for sale, and such details bode extremely well for her future. Madam Cloud's dam Model Girl was a sibling of the top-class Silver Wedge, who was victorious in the Grp-3 Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot on the flat and later won seven times over hurdles (including the Grade-1 Long Walk Hurdle and Grade-1 Tolworth Hurdle) and three times over fences.
The extended family also features the stakes-placed Silver Robin and the Grade-1 placed novice hurdler Perfect Smile.
Scorpion and Madam Cloud seem highly likely to prove a winning combination, particularly given the exploits of Spider's Bite mentioned above.
The Shade Oak Stud-based sire has previously provided stellar names such as the King George winner and Gold Cup runner-up Might Bite, the Grade-1 winning chaser Riders Onthe Storm and the Grade-1 winning novice hurdler Don't Touch It, amongst numerous others.
Scorpion's covering fee for the 2021 season was £3,000 and his progeny continue to prove commercially appealing, realising up to £120,000 at public auction in recent years. This well-made filly has a terrific NH pedigree and the looks to match.
