Whitehotchillifili         

LISTED WINNER                    

Sire : Milan     Dam : Mhuire Na Gale

Bay Mare 2014

Handicap Mark : 130

Trained by Harry Fry

A very well bred bay mare by the high class proven stallion Milan out of Mhuire Na Gale.  Her mother has produced Wild West Wind trained by Tom George and Redhotfillypeppers, bought for 200k euros trained by Willie Mullins.  Both are winners and Whitehotchillifili has been an excellent horse for our syndicate, winning 4 times and placed 5 times including a bumper win and three hurdle races.  She won the Mares’ Listed Hurdle at Sandown in impressive style in January 2021 and placed 3rd in the Warfield Mares Grade 2 Hurdle at Ascot in January 2022.  She has twice run for us at the Cheltenham Festival and should continue to be an exciting mare.

In Rem

WINNER            

Sire : Kapgarde   Dam : Etoile Des Iles

Bay Gelding 2015

Handicap Mark : 120

Trained by : Jane Williams

In Rem is a bay gelding standing at 16.3 hands and is a great looking horse.  He is by the top French sire, Kapgarde, from a very good dam line and has been a slow burner.  We acquired him after his first win over hurdles at Ffos Las in October 2021.  He had taken a while to mature but we think he has plenty of improvement in him and should give us lots of fun over hurdles before going chasing.

He has already won FOUR races for us on the bounce in very impressive style and we expect him to continue to progress through this season.  In their assessment after his latest win, the Racing Post said he looked as though he is on a steep upward curve and potentially a very exciting horse indeed.

White Hart Lady

WINNER  

Sire : Doyen     Dam : Hats and Heels

Bay Mare 2014

Handicap Mark : 90

Trainer – Harry Fry

A very promising mare who has yet to fulfil the promise she showed when winning her bumper at Aintree.  She had a few niggling injuries last year and was a little unlucky in some of her races.  She is progressing well this season and in three runs has been placed twice and was a winner at Fontwell in November 2021.  Sure to continue to improve before going chasing next season.

Howdilyoudo

WINNER                    

Sire : Presenting     Dam : Little Dil

Bay Mare 2015

Handicap Mark : 103

Trained by Jamie Snowden

She is an attractive and very well bred bay mare and is one of top stallion Presenting’s last daughters as he died during 2017.  She is Little Dil’s first foal and her two subsequent foals sold for 37,000 and 50,000.  I bought her as a foal and it looks like I got a bargain!

Little Dil is a half sister to Whatyouthink (also by Presenting) who was a winner of 8 races and £177,000 including a 3rd place in the Irish Grand National and achieved a handicap rating of 152.  Her other half brother, Whodoyouthink won five races and £73,000 and achieved a handicap rating of 142.  If our mare follows in their footsteps we will all be very happy.

She has taken well to her training with Jamie Snowden who says she is a lovely mover with a touch of class about her.   She prefers good ground so we enjoyed summer racing with her last year and she has performed well over hurdles, winning two at Worcester and Uttoxeter, and has finished 2nd plus 3rd on three occasions - in fact in her ten races to date she has only finished out of the first 4 on two occasions!  She is now a 7 year old and is progressing very nicely and we are very excited about her future over fences.

Esprit de Somoza

WINNER                    

Sire : Irish Wells     Dam : Topaze de Somoza

Bay Gelding 2014

Handicap Mark : 112 (H) 115 (C)

Trained by Jane Williams

I am delighted we have acquired Esprit De Somoza on loan for the rest of his racing career from Jane Williams who will continue to train him for us, so will maintain our long standing association with Culverhill Farm.

He was a very exciting horse for Nick Williams who bought him as a yearling for £26,000 and won the Chatteris Fen Hurdle at Huntingdon in January 2018 in impressive fashion as a 4 year old. He was quietly fancied for the Fred Winter at The Festival 2 months later but finished 14/22 that day. He is now a 7 year old having run in good company throughout his career, winning another hurdle in February 2019 and a Jumpers Bumper at Kempton in January 2021. He has had decent hurdle runs for us during our Summer 2021 campaign and topped them off with a fantastic and impressive win over fences at Wincanton in December 2021.  Jane Williams has done an amazing job with him and Chester Williams knows him well and has been able to bring out the best in him.  We very much look forward to seeing how he progresses now he has won over the bigger obstacles.

Fairy Gem

WINNER     

Sire : Shantou        Dam : Mystic Maisie

Bay Mare 2016

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained by Harry Fry

Our exciting mare, Fairy Gem, is in her first season with Harry Fry.  She was pre-trained in Ireland and is a full sister to our very special Outofthisworld who, sadly, suffered career ending injuries at Kempton during 2020.  Fairy Gem also is a full sister to the very talented Angels Breath in training with Nicky Henderson, rated 153 over fences and has an entry for the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2022.   

Fairy Gem has been a late developer and, although not very big, she has the heart of a lion and a great attitude.  We have been very patient with her, and our patience was rewarded in December 2021 when she won on her racecourse debut in a bumper at Plumpton, coming from off the pace and put in a very determined effort to get her nose in front!  She then ran in the Listed Bumper at Cheltenham in January 2022 and finished 2nd - a truly inspiring performance.  She is sure to be very exciting to follow.

Lydia Violet  

Sire : Kalanisi   Dam : Anne Hathaway

Bay Mare 2015

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained by : Tom George

She is an attractive well bred mare by one of the top stallions, Kalanisi, and comes from the same family as the Kerry National winner Potters Point who was trained by Gordon Elliot.  She is a lovely looking horse with good conformation and moves nicely, she is very relaxed, has a great attitude and loves her work.  She performed well on her racecourse debut in a bumper at Warwick on 6th November and she has had two runs in hurdles so far.   Tom was very pleased with her three runs to date as she was quite young and immature, and sadly suffered a leg injury and has had to miss the 2020/2021 season.  She has made a full recovery from that and has really matured and will come back into full training in July 2022 ready for next season.

Lord Ravensley (un-raced)

Sire : Walk In The Park   Dam : Fentara

Bay Gelding 2018

Handicap Mark : N/A

Trained By Harry Fry

Lord Ravensley is a very well bred 4 year old gelding by Walk In The Park out of the ex Chasing Gold mare Fentara. She comes from a very good family herself and was one of the top mares of her generation with a handicap mark of 140.  Walk In The Park is one of the leading National Hunt sires and stands at Coolmore‘s Grange Stud in Ireland. His stock have been selling very well and often in excess of £100,000 for 3 year old stores and he did achieve sales records of £570,000 and £470,000 for two 4 year old point to point winners at last year’s sales.  Walk In The Park is the sire of Douvan and Min.

 So, the breeding of our new gelding is out of the top drawer, his size and conformation couldn’t be better standing just under 17 hands and looking every inch a chaser.  Could he be our Gold Cup or Grand National horse? 

 He is in training with Harry Fry and we look forward to seeing him on the racecourse during 2022.
