|Name:||Tortuga Bay (GB)|
|Pedigree:||Sulamani (IRE) - Empress Of Light (GB)|
|Owner:||Mrs Ann Fraser|
Tortuga Bay is a scopey mare who won on her Point-to-Point debut (the runner up in the race Miss Seagreen has subsequently won three Point-to-Points and the third is also a winner).
A lightly raced six year old who has taken some time for everything to come together under rules but we have learnt plenty about her now. We feel two miles on a galloping track on good/ good to soft ground will be her ideal over hurdles with a future over fences. Hopefully Kelso will be the starting point and then with luck she will qualify for a handicap mark. On a recent racecourse outing to Ayr she galloped well with Black Pirate.
Sulamani died as an 18yo and was a top class NH Sire of Honeysuckle, Rule The World Copperhead, etc.
The Dam Empress of Light produced Ron’s Dream winner of a Bumper, five hurdle races including Listed at Cheltenham and four chase wins including three Listed.
Also Fistral Beach winner of a Bumper and three chases including Listed winner at Wetherby. Belle Empress a Point, hurdle and chase winner and hurdle winners Watergate Boy and Letterpress and Bumper winner Hanguard.
