Hollygrove Cha Cha (IRE)

2020 Bay filly by Affinisea ex Hollygrove Rumba (Indian Danehill)

Hollygrove Cha Cha is a lovely 4yo filly by the very promising young jumps stallion Affinisea, sire of several exciting young horses from his runners so far.

She is out of Hollygrove Rumba, a half-sister to  Captain Cutter who won a Listed bumper on debut and looked immensely talented over hurdles, winning the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle before tragically losing his life in the Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival.

Hollygrove Cha Cha is a big, scopey filly who we are very excited about at this early stage!
