CAMELOT X CONDITION (DEPLOY)
This is an outstanding opportunity to be involved with an outstanding prospect. We purchased this filly as a yearling and always intended to sell her as a 3 yr old. The process of preparing her for her sale started a few months ago, and the further she went down the path to the sale the more we liked her. As planned, she was offered at the Goffs UK Spring Store Sale in Doncaster, but we offered her with such a reserve, that we were more likely to keep her than sell her. We really wanted this girl back to run in our colours!
What can we tell you about her? She is 16.2hh – so she is a tall girl. She has a fantastic, athletic walk and trot, and a wonderful temperament. She was so well behaved at the sales, that she was shown, and paraded by a young lady having her first experience of doing it in public.
Her sire, Camelot needs no introduction – one of the best racehorses we have seen in the last 50 years – he was very unfortunate not be win a triple crown. He has become one of the best sires in Ireland – his progeny winning a host of Group 1’s all over the world, and an Irish Derby with Latrobe. He was also the sire of the ill-fated, but extremely highly talented hurdler Sir Erec, and has a wonderful filly running for him in the Grade 2 winner, Miranda. This filly is the full sister to the dual hurdles winner, and Grade 1,2 and 3 placed Gardens Of Babylon, who made 240,000 gns as a yearling.
Her dam, Condition, was placed in Listed company in France, running over trips from 1m – 1m3f. She has bred 3 black type performers – Dreamt, who won in Listed company, Homepage who was placed in Listed company, and Gardens Of Babylon (by Camelot) who has been placed at the highest level over hurdles.
This filly really has all the credentials to be very good in the National Hunt sphere, and we are delighted to be able to offer a horse of this quality.
She will remain the property of Olney Bloodstock Ltd and will run in the name and colours of Nick Brown Racing. She will be trained by Olly Murphy – and will enter training later this year, after a period of pre training with Jason Maguire.
There are just 25 shares available – which will be leased from Olney Bloodstock Ltd. There are no capital costs, and keep fees are set at an all-inclusive £25/week (£110/month). She has been in pre training since November 1st and will be with Olly Murphy in early January
The lease term is initially 2 years with option to extend. Under the terms of the lease the lessee can terminate his/her interest in the filly earlier should they wish to.
The monthly fees are all inclusive – and members will never be asked for additional sums. In addition, all the net prize money won by the filly will be paid annually (pro rata) to all shareholders. (June).
We are thrilled to have retained her, and very excited about running her in the future!
