|Name:||The Blame Game|
|Pedigree:||Getaway (GER) - Tribal Princess (IRE)|
|Owner:||Mr Jim Gordon|
After finishing second in a Bumper in Ireland to Ash Hill trained by Joseph O’Brien, The Blame Game came to us in February and ran in two Bumpers finishing second on his last run at Newcastle in March. He does require faster ground so we will aim to run him in Novice Hurdles in the early part of the season and he has considerable potential.
By the sire Getaway a high class 12f-15f winner himself, he has already proved himself to be a high class sire producing exciting prospects Verdana Blue, Getabird, Talk is Cheap and Getaway Katie Mai to name a few.
His dam Tribal Princess was a tough genuine mare winning four times on the flat before scoring over hurdles and has Listed form next to her name. She also won over fences. From her first four foals she has produced Top Man Marty who won his Bumper first time out before going on to be placed in his first two Hurdle starts. Little Miss Vic was an impressive winner of her Point-to-Point and was placed three times in her Bumpers.
