Love Bite (IRE)
2018 xxx filly by Milan (GB) ex Knotted Midge (Ire) (Presenting (GB))
This filly is also by the wonderful sire Milan and is out of Knotted Midge, making her a half-sister to
the multiple Grade 1 winning chaser Might Bite. He was an extremely talented and sound racehorse, whose famously wayward behaviour (very common in horses by his sire, Scorpion) did not stop
him winning 10 races, 5 of which were at the very highest level and included the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day. Attitude was not a problem for his brother Beat That, another multiple Grade 1 winner and a full brother to our filly. Beat That was a tough and honest horse with a huge amount of ability, but he was plagued with injury problems which stopped him reaching the heady heights that his brother managed.
This filly had a nice education in bumpers but will be seen at her best over obstacles and a further trip. She was green in her first proper hurdles run and took a while to get the hang of things, but stayed on very nicely giving us hope of much better things to come.
Nicky Henderson needs little introduction as one of the most successful National Hunt trainers of the modern era. He is a multiple winner of the Trainers’ Championship, with over 3000 winners to his name, including over 70 Cheltenham Festival winners. He has trained some of the most memorable jumps horses in history, including See You Then, Sprinter Sacre, Altior and Buveur D’Air to name just a few. Nicky and his team approach another National Hunt season with an enviable team of horses, including dominant 2 mile chaser Shishkin, and the outstanding Novice Hurdler from last season Constitution Hill to fly the Seven Barrows flag.
