SWISS SPIRIT has made a fine start to his career to stud, boasting a winners to runners strike rate of over
40% with his first crop in 2017. This filly is a full-sister to one of those in AWSAAF, a talented if exuberant colt for Simon Crisford. This filly’s dam ATHEERA is a grandaughter of the 1,000 Guineas winner MEHTHAAF which is the same family as the crack miler of 2017 RIBCHESTER. She is bred/owned by Lordship Stud who also bred/part-own her sire SWISS SPIRIT and it is great to be involved with both them and this filly.
This filly will be trained by another newbie to the Hot To Trot ranks in David Simcock, the master of Trillium Place Stables on the racecourse side of Newmarket who is ably assisted by his lovely wife Jennie. David is a brilliant trainer who is a great thinker and a superb placer of his horses. David has tasted Group 1 success through the likes of DREAM AHEAD and MADAME CHIANG and is destined for the top one day. Hopefully this filly can help him along the way!
