2015 grey filly by Mount Nelson ex Jessica Ennis (USA) (English Channel (USA))
Heptathlete has been showing ability at home and during a couple of racecourse gallops of late. She is ready to run now and we are looking forward to her debut.
Heptathlete is a daughter of the Group 1 winning Mount Nelson, a consistent sire of smart performers who many 2016 Hot To Trot Members will have seen at Newsells Park Stud in 2016. She is a daughter of the much vaunted Jessica Ennis who was very highly regarded at home for her Highclere Syndicate (whom Jessica Ennis was an honorary member of) before suffering an injury in Newmarket that prevented her from Racing. At stud, she is the dam of two 2yo winners from two runners to date and we hope this filly will be a third this summer.

She is our first horse with the affable George Baker who is based on the Manton Estate just outside Marlborough, one of most famous training establishments in the world. George is a very successful trainer in his own right with the likes of Belgian Bill and Boomshakalaka regularly flying his flag all around the world.
