2016 bay filly by Showcasing (GB) ex Place In My Heart (GB) (Compton Place (GB))

What an honour it is to have a filly of this calibre in our name and colours. She is quite simply way beyond what one could ever expect when leasing a horse but it is courtesy of her half-sister HEARTACHE, who won the Queen Mary and Flying Childers (both Group 2’s) for us last season that this opportunity has even arisen. She is by the hugely exciting young Whitsbury Manor stallion SHOWCASING and is the second foal, the first being HEARTACHE of course, of the Listed-winning and Group 3 placed PLACE IN MY HEART, all of whom, like this filly, are bred/owned by Whitsbury Manor. She is a superb physical specimen and we now just have to keep our fingers crossed that there is an engine under the fine bonnet. If she is half as good as HEARTACHE then we are in for a very exciting season with her!

Trainer

Clive Cox

She will be trained by the masterful trainer Clive Cox who of course gave us so many brilliant moments last season with HEARTACHE. Clive is one of the most talented trainers in the country and whilst he excels with all horses, his record with sprinters is  phenomenal as HARRY ANGEL, PROFITABLE and LETHAL FORCE illustrate. Clive and his wife Tina are always hugely welcoming at their Sheepdrove Farm base in Lambourn which is owned of course by another legend in John Francome. We look forward to more memorable visits there this season.
