2016 (G) SHIROCCO X TAKEYOURCAPOFF
We are delighted to of completed the purchase of this beautifully bred Shirocco Gelding out of the black type Kings Theatre mare Takeyourcapoff who herself is a full sister to the very talented Graded performer Peregrine Run who has won over 16 times and counting. We believe we have picked him up at an exceptional price considering how Regally Bred he is. Since we have purchased the horse he has grown to 16 hands 1 and has developed into a fine looking animal. Gordon knows the family extremely well as he trained Takeyourcapoff to win not 1 but 2 feature races at different tracks, over various trips and ground types which is the sign of a very good horse. Kings Theatre needs no introduction as a sire himself being by the almighty Sadlers Wells which makes a brilliant cross with Shirocco. Shirocco himself had great success on the flat as a stallion before being switched to the national hunt code where he has already had success at the highest level with Annie Power and Minella Rocco and with his first crop of National Hunt proper progeny set to make the track toward the end of 2019 all the signals thus far are they are expected to do very well and the early stock to run in 2020 have been impressive. He is currently in training with Gordon after finishing off his pre-training. Videos and pictures can be sent on request of his training. In the video above you can see he has taken very well to his jumping (Blue Cap).
