Pioneer Racing are thrilled to have purchased the stunning looking mare ‘Purse Price‘ who is on her way into training at the renowned Cullentra House Stables with Gordon Elliott.
Purse Price was the comfortable debut winner of a P2P bumper, when completely outclassing her rivals under a confident hands and heels ride with the mare never being asked for maximum effort. The first thing that caught our eye was the ease in which she travelled throughout the race and also the fact she had to take the widest passage throughout the race, meaning she had to cover far more ground than the rest of the field on the day. She looks like a mare who has a good cruising speed which was shown to good effect by the way she powered through the line whilst pulling away from the rest of the field.
Gordon & Mouse travelled over to the Tattersalls Cheltenham sale to inspect her and immediately liked what they saw, Gordon said she was a gorgeous mare who not only looks athletic but also has a great physical presence.
She’s a sizeable mare at 16 2 with great movement and she has came strongly recommended from her previous connections, who states she jumps very well at home and that the signs she has shown at home so far lead them to believe she is going to be a mare with a bright future ahead on the track. Her debut win and the ease in which she did it certainly gives that impression and she should have no problem making her presence felt and stamping her authority under rules in the near future. Gordon believes we will be able to improve this mare and increase her fitness a great deal with his state of the art facilities, given she has come to us from a small training establishment and she is one we are very excited to see making her debut for us in a bumper under the Pioneer Racing Colours before going jumping this coming Autumn and Winter.
Below you will find reports on her victory:
Tattersalls Cheltenham – ‘The daughter of Passing Glance made the perfect start to her career when running away with the 4&5yo point-to-point flat race at Duncombe Park on her debut. She travelled well through the contest and put it to bed in good style. From the same vendors who sold Does He Know (Recent Grade 2 winner) she looks a lovely prospect for novice hurdling.’
Pointtopoint.co.uk – ‘The biggest celebrations of the day came from the Coward family as the Cherry Coward trained Purse Price galloped on strongly to win the closing Flat Race for 4 and 5yo’s. Ridden by Rosie Howarth the pair led 3 out and ran on well to win. Bought by Jacqueline Coward in the summer of 2020 it was hard to hide their enthusiasm for this 5yo daughter of Passing Glance “we just love her, everyone rides her at home and I think she’s quite nice!” said Coward, who may opt to send this debutant winner back to the sales “we might send her to the sales, but we wouldn’t be giving her away”.’
Her dam Eveon won over fences and comes from the family of Chetenham Festival Grade 1 winner and black type performer Lord Noelie, Eveon has already shown she can produce a high level racehorse with progeny a half sister to Purse Price being a 4 time winner over hurdles. The sire Passing Glance is also proven at the top level and has sired multiple top grade winners over jumps such as Dashel Drasher, Millers Bank and Fountains Windfall to name but a few.
Gordon Elliott – ‘She’s a gorgeous looking mare who really caught our eye at the sales, We saw her run and were impressed by it. She looked like a mare who done it easy and what impressed me was she was wide the whole way round and still done it well without being asked a question. It’s great to have another nice young mare to train for Pioneer who are a massive supporter of Cullentra and we have a great mares programme here in Ireland for horses like her which is going from strength to strength and provides plenty of nice opportunities to win good prize money for these nice mares. She looks like one we can go and win a bumper with and then we will look at going jumping with her in the Winter’.
Aidan ‘Mouse’ O’Ryan – ‘She’s a fine looking mare who was well recommended by previous connections who like her a lot and would certainly know a good horse. We were there to buy her on the day and had expected to part with alot more to get taking her home, but thats why its always important to follow the one you want into the ring, we think she represents excellent value for new connections and is sure to provide lots of fun and great days out for her new owners.
