This 3yo gelding has all the looks of a successful future chaser standing at 16:2 out of 97 rated flat mare Tea Blossom who was a winner in France and Group 3 placed over 12f at Newbury in Soft ground. It is a proper Juddmonte middle-distance family.
He is by New Approach, the joint highest rated racehorse in the world 2008, and sire of Grade 1 hurdler Pied Piper. Not obvious on this page is that Jeff Kidder (Winner of the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival and the 4yo Champion Hurdle at Punchestown for Noel Meade) is out of an unraced full-sister to Tea Blossom.
An added angle to this page is that four mares out of the third dam all produced Black Type jumpers, one is Main Fact (Won 9 races in a row for David Pipe including the Grade 3 Betfair Stayers Handicap Hurdle) and not even listed on this page, New Agenda, out of Prove, was also by New Approach!
This gelding was sourced from the Land Rover Sale in June. I bought him on-spec, took him home to be broken-in and he has thrived ever since. He was turned-out for the summer here at Webb Hill Farm and always catches the eye in the field. It is well worth watching the Loose School video.
