2013 (G) PADDY O’PRADO X I INSIST
Pioneer are delighted to have secured another exciting prospect to our string in Sporty Yankee who was purchased recently by Gordon and Tom Malone at the Horse In Training sale. Physically he is a beautiful imposing type standing at over 16h2, we hope this lovely grey gelding will prove to be on a very competitive not only over Hurdles and fences but also on the flat, which should provide his new owners with plenty of opportunities to have a winner and a great day out. He has shown a lot of great form on the flat in the past winning 2 and placing a further 3 times from just 13 runs on turf competing off a mark of 75, he has since dropped to a mark of 57. He has also won over hurdles, a maiden hurdle on his first start over timber and went on to compete of a mark of 112 which has now dropped to a very low 84. He also has a mark of 84 over larger obstacles which again we hope Gordon can prove to be a very workable mark to improve on. It is also worth bearing in mind the previous trainer has not had a winner in 5 years from 155 runners.
Gordon has had notable success with the sire before and managed to work his magic recently with From Eden who he has achieved 2 wins and 5 second places from 10 starts in his control including days out at Punchestown and Galway Festival. We view this horse as a similar prospect going forward, at just 6yo he has age on his side and with just minimal improvement he can get his owners into the winners enclosure, which we are sure is highly likely with a freshen up and the array of facilities that Gordon has at his disposal.
