Black Pirate ran in three competitive Bumpers winning at Wetherby and Ayr. He then returned to Ayr for the Scottish Champion Bumper where he came second to Tom Lacey’s highly regardedSebastopol and was only beaten 3.5 lengths giving away 15 lbs. He has demonstrated that he is very adaptable to ground conditions and we have not rushed him. Rising seven he will now embark on a Novice Hurdle career and is very exciting. He will suit the slower side of good going and a stiff galloping track. Black Sam Bellamy has produced plenty of winners and is the Sire of The Giant Bolster.
His Dam was unraced but the Grand Dam has produced three black-type performers, Hobbs Hill winner of two Grade 2 Novice Chases, Posh Pearl second in Aintree Champion Bumper and Hollies Pearl a Listed winner of Bumpers and Hurdles. The third Dam produced three winners including Pearlyman – a top class 2 mile Chaser and Listed Hurdle winner Poetic Gem.
