|Pedigree:||Kap Rock (FR) - Crack D'Emble (FR)|
Karismatik joined the stables in 2018 after his pre training in France with our good friend Vincent Le Roy who recommended him to us. He went into light training the first season and then last season we did much more with him and he is now ready to go on and race in a Bumper. We have brought him on very slowly due to his size and strength and we did not want to rush him physically or mentally which will pay dividends in the long term.
We have followed his brother's form Flegmatik with interest seeing him winning a Juvenile Hurdle at Wetherby very nicely and also 3rd in a 0-135 back at Wetherby with some good form horses Main Fact etc. Still only a 5yo Dan Skelton was quoted as saying he too is a big chasing type and Karismatik is circa 16.3hh and a strong model.
Karismatik is by Kap Rock who was trained by Guillaume Macaire who James worked for in France. Kap Rock is by Video Rock and out of a Cadoudal mare so a top class French jumping pedigree. The dam, grand dam and great grand dam are all Auteuil winners themselves and GG Dam, French Free Star produced four products who were all winners two of which have become very good Jumping Sires Bonnet Rouge and Marasca Sorrento. Kap Rock was a winning hurdler as a 3yo himself and half brother to French sire Kapgarde and Geos and is sire of Criq Rock and Cheltenham Cross Country winner Diesel D’Allier.
