Hold Onto The Line was purchased with Clive Webb-Carter at the Goffs Horses in Training May sales this year shortly after finishing a close second in an Irish Point- to- Point In May 2021 at Broughshane.
He stayed on impressively in second and just as well really as the Point-to-Point winners were making at least double at the sales.
First time he ran they were in a rush to get him to the track when he was not fit and then ran 14 days later and was expected to win (a short turnaround for a 4yo). He made a bad mistake three out hence why he was a little far back but not beaten far and stayed on very strongly to the line which was good to see.
He has a fine physique and temperament, looks tough and has done well at grass. JD Moore - Arthur Moore’s son thought we had done well with the best value 4yo pointer in the sale.
The Sire Westerner was a high class performer in staying races including five Group 1s and coming second in the 2005 Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe. He is now a highly successful National Hunt sire with multiple Group 1 winners.
The Dam Dedoctorsdaughter by Dr. Massini won four times (Point-to-Point, hurdle and chase. Hold Onto The Line is her first runner. The second Dam was the unraced half-sister to hurdle winer Francys Fancy from the family of Killiney and she has produced a Newbury Maiden Hurdle and Point-to-Point winner Mizen Station.
