Chasing Gold has eight horses in training, four of which are with Harry Fry: Whitehotchillifili, White Hart Lady, Fairy Gem and Picnic In The Park.
HORSES IN TRAINING
2014 bay mare by Milan (GB)
ex Mhuire Na Gale (Ire) (Norwich (GB))
A bay mare by the high class proven stallion Milan out of Mhuire Na Gale. Her mother has produced Wild West Wind trained by Tom George and Redhotfillypeppers, bought for €200,000 trained by Willie Mullins. Both are winners and Whitehotchillifili has not disappointed as she won easily on her debut in a bumper at Southwell in December 2018, beating strong opposition.
She is a highly rated mare and was very impressive in winning a Listed Hurdle at Sandown in January 2021. She is the winner of four races and has run with credit in two Cheltenham Festivals. A consistent, genuine horse, she will be fun to follow this season when she will once again be targeted at quality mares’ races.
WHITE HART LADY (IRE)
2014 bay mare by Doyen (Ire)
ex Hats And Heels (Ire) (Flemensfirth (USA))
A very well-bred bay mare by Doyen out of a winning mare Hats And Heels who, trained by Willie Mullins, won twice from only four races before suffering an injury which foreshortened a potentially glittering career.
White Hart Lady was an impressive winner of her first bumper at Aintree in October 2019, a stunning performance, and she ran with credit in all the top mares’ bumper races. She didn’t finish out of the placings last season, winning comfortably at Fontwell in November over hurdles. An exciting proposition for the season ahead, she will go Novice Chasing.
2016 bay mare by Shantou (USA)
ex Mystic Masie (Ire) (Turgeon (USA))
A very well bred mare by the very successful sire Shantou out of Mystic Masie. She is a full sister to the very highly rated Angels Breath (158) and Outofthisworld (129).
A mare with real ability, she got off the mark in bumpers at the first time of asking at Plumpton in December before her sights were raised with two high-class listed races. Finishing second at Cheltenham on Festival Trials Day in January and third at Sandown in March, she will turn her attentions to hurdles this season where hopefully she can add further black type success to her CV.
PICNIC IN THE PARK (GB)
2017 bay mare by Walk In The Park (IRE)
ex Cherry Pie (FR)
She is a half-sister to three winners including Grade 3 scorer Stoney Mountain (RPR 145), Grade 2 placed Great Try and Padstow Harbour. She looks a lovely type and is a mouth-watering prospect.
