Recently purchased with Bobby O’Ryan at the Land Rover Sale we were delighted to secure the winning bid as James has followed this horse since a foal first seeing him at Marchcleugh in Jedburgh. A strong bodied three year old chestnut gelding with plenty of size and scope he is being broken in now doing everything with ease and tremendous attitude. He will be an exciting horse to own!
Ocovango, another Monsun National Hunt Stallion was unbeaten at 2 and a Group winner over 10 furlongs. “He’s got the ability, balance, the attitude, the breeding. He’s a serious horse” (Andre Fabre)
His first crop of three year olds were popular at the 2019 store sales and his first runner was a winner! Langer Dan won his first two starts over hurdles including the Listed Juvenile Hurdle at Wetherby and Glenglass won the 4yo Maiden Point to Point for Colin Bowe and was sold to Gordon Elliot. His first runner on the flat is already a winner of three races so off to a great start.
