|Name:||Aristo Du Plessis (FR)|
|Pedigree:||Voix Du Nord (FR) - J'Aime (FR) - Royal Charter|
|Owner:||John and Jill Dodd|
Stable star and stalwart winner of 11 races - 1 AQPS bumper in France and 11 Hurdles with us in the UK and in excess of £100,000 in prize money won from 39 starts. An amazing first horse for John and Jill Dodd we have enjoyed many great days and it was good to see Aristo winning again last season at Carlisle. He has a good following too which we really appreciate largely due to his heart on his sleeve way of jumping - out in front with a slick efficient style over his hurdles and impressive strike rate over the seasons. Like his day to day rider, Head Lad David Macleod they still love what they do every day and it would be great to think he could pinch another one at Carlisle or Wetherby again enjoying a hill and softer ground now and only for as long as he is enjoying himself as he owes us nothing now.
Aristo du Plessis is the third foal out of J’aime who was placed 1m2f and 1m6f AQPS flat races in France. Sister to 2m1 chase winner Babati and haf sister to 2m1-3m hurdle and chase winter Lease Back and 2m1-3m2 hurdle and chase winner O’Maley
Voix du Nord sadly died as a 12yo as he was just starting to prove to be a top class NH sire now 20% of his runners are largely quality winners including Kemboy, Espoir D’Allen, Defi Du Seuil and Vroom Vroom Mag.
