Soldier Of Fortune x Forever Young
SOLDIER OF FORTUNE X FOREVER YOUNG
We have been waiting for the right horse for some time. I have had a small group of clients looking for a nicely bred athletic filly, and it has taken some time to secure the right one, and we are delighted to have secured this filly – with the added bonus that we had expected to pay slightly more for her. We think she represents great value.
This filly was purchased from the Tattersalls Ireland May Store sale – this year held in August due to the pandemic.
She is by a top sire in Soldier Of Fortune. This son of the great Galileo has amassed some very impressive stats as a National Hunt Sire, with a near 60% winners to runner strike rate. Compare this to the latest fashionable sire, Walk In The Park who has a 47% strike rate and you can see that he is a top stallion. This filly is out of a daughter of the great Flemensfirth who is a wonderful broodmare sire himself. Her dam was unraced – but she is the half sister to Royal Rendezvous who was the winner of the Galway Plate a couple of weeks ago – earning a RPR of 161 in the process. Her grand dam Novacella was a black type winner, winning races from 2m-2m5f – and was herself a half sister to the great Marcel.
This filly has arrived with Jason Maguire who will break her in and pre train her for the rest of 2021.
She will head to Fergal O’Brien at the end of the year, with the plan of her making her debut in a spring bumper.
