We are pleased to unveil the latest addition to the Mount Racing Club which is this beautifully bred 3-y-o by the Group 1 winning Sire ‘Scorpion’ who has gone straight into training with Rebecca Menzies. He was purchased from the Land Rover sales in Ireland and because of this automatically holds an entry into the Champion Bumper race at the Punchestown Festival in Ireland next year. At €12,000 it could be money well spent when you consider that in 2011 the all conquering mighty ‘Faugheen’ went through the same sales and exactly the same price and has since gone on to win a host of Grade1 races including the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.
His sire Scorpion is also being tipped to be one of the leading sires of jumps horses this year with plenty of his offspring coming through the ranks and receiving rave reviews in Ireland. Our horse has a lovely action and a great temperament to match and is being schooled over poles at the moment and cantering away on the gallops. We hope to see him on a racecourse early next year March/April time where he will debut for us in a Bumper (National Hunt Flat race) and then in time go onto to jumping hurdles and fences. A really exciting prospect for the future.
