Horses in Training - Older Horses

Mr Millarcky

b g Equiano - Fatal Attraction

(Mr Chris Mills)

A four year old gelding bred by Chris Mills, originally bought for Hong Kong as a foal for 68,000 guineas and shrewdly (we all hope) bought back by Robbie Mills for 6,500 guineas in July 2019.  He is a strong bay typical of the Acclamation line of his sire Equiano and a full sister to multiple winner Entertaining Ben out of a full sister to former stable star Mirza.  It has been great to have another representative of this family which Rae knows so well. He keeps improving and has now won three races on the bounce.


Land of Winter

4 b g Camelot – Gaselee (Toccet)

(Mr Paul Smith & Rae Guest)

Another by high class Derby winner Camelot, this good looking horse is the last foal of his dam Gaselee.  She was a winner and Listed fourth for Rae and was from the good Niarchos family of Group 1 winners Hernando and Johann Quatz. Land of Winter has matured and is panning out to be a useful distance horse. He has won and been placed three times at 1m 3f to 2m 1f.


Capla Berry

4 b f Roderic O'Connor x Salsa Brava (Almutawakel)

(Strawberry Fields Stud )

This filly is out of Salsa Brava, placed second in both the Lowther Stakes and Cherry Hinton Stakes at two, by Roderic O’Connor who was himself a Group 1 winner at 2 and won Irish 2,000 Guineas at 3 and by the all-conquering Galileo.  She is home bred at Strawberry Fields Stud and so far is only lightly raced but this season has had two from two already.


Fashionesque

4 b f Fast Company – Featherlight (Fantastic Light)

(Miss Victoria Markowiak)

This attractive filly came into training late as a two year old, she is by Fast Company, a lightly raced top-class 2yo who is proving a good source of speed and is the sire of Group 1 classic winner Jet Setting.  This filly has not disappointed and continues to improve having broken her maiden on her second run as a 3 year old and won on her first outing as a 4 year old. 


Squelch

4 b f Dark Angel - Blancmange (Montjeu)

(Purple & Yellow)

She is a twice raced three year old filly bought out of William Haggas’s yard in Tattersalls July sales for Purple & Yellow Syndicate. By top stallion Dark Angel out of a Montjeu mare. She had a couple of promising runs with us last year but is another one of our older horses that have come in to her own with three from three so far this year.


Roman Spinner

5 Ch f Intikhab x Pompeia (Singspiel) 

(Reprobates Too Syndicate)

This attractive filly was the first foal of her dam, a two year old winner by Singspiel who was rated 80 and is a half sister to two small black type horses. Intikhab is a proven high class sire, most notably of multiple Group 1 winning fillies Red Evie and Snow Fairy. She is a real genuine type and always gives her all. She has 5 wins and numerous places. In fact, she has a 50% strike rate for being placed in the top three during her career so far.


Zarrar

5 g b Thewayyouare – Featherlight (Fantastic Light)

(Miss Vicky Markowiak)

A big good looking four year old, originally trained by Brendan Powell to three wins at a mile and a half in 2018 but he has been out of form in 2019. He is a half-sister to the lovely Fashionesque who is a winner and very consistent for us in 2019. He has had a bit of a break and came back firing on all cylinders with a win over hurdles at Plumpton in September.
