HORSES IN TRAINING
2014 bay mare by Milan (GB)
ex Mhuire Na Gale (Ire) (Norwich (GB))
A bay filly 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 the last two Cheltenham Festivals. Sure to be fun to follow this season when she will again target 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 filly 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 looks sure to be winning her share of races this season starting off over hurdles with chasing an option. An exciting proposition.
2016 bay mare by Shantou (USA)
ex Mystic Masie (Ire) (Turgeon (USA))
A very well bred 5 year old 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). If she matches their performances she will be very exciting to follow. She will start off in bumpers this autumn.
2018 bay gelding by Walk In The Park (Ire)
ex Fentara (GB) (Kayf Tara (GB))
A lovely big 3 year old bay gelding by the highly rated stallion Walk In The Park out of the black type mare Fentara (139). Fentara was the winner of six races for Chasing Gold and was a very good jumper of fences. Walk In The Park has sired some top class horses including Min and Douvin. His percentage of winners to runners is over 40%.
Lord Ravensley looks a wonderful specimen and chasing will no doubt be his game. One to set the senses tingling!
2016 grey gelding by Lord De Sud (Fr)
ex Rockbelle (Fr) (Video Rock (Fr))
Gallant Commander is a grey gelding who has run twice in bumpers finishing 7th in a very competitive race at Sandown where the winner was given an RPR of 125 and our horse 105. That rating would be good enough to win many bumpers. He finished 5th in his next bumper and has certainly shown enough to suggest he has a good future. He will start hurdling in the Autumn.
