Sire: Lord Shanakill
Dam: Azzurra Du Caprio
Owner: Blue Lion Racing (Shares available)
We were thrilled to be able to buy this good looking, well grown colt over in Ireland at the Tattersalls September Sales. By Lord Shanakill, whose talents as a sire are emerging this year through Royal Ascot Group 1 winner My Dreamboat, he is from a family we know well, his dam being the talented mare Azzurra Du Caprio. Trained by Ben, she was the winner of five races from two to five years old, and took her syndicate to all the big tracks and meetings.
We feel this lad was a real bargain at a sale where there was one to be bought, and he has improved since his arrival in Middleham. He has loads of size and scope, a really good shoulder, and moves very well with plenty of balance. He still has shares available, so please contact Ben if you are interested.
