2017 filly by Presenting (GB) ex Makadamia (GB) (Kahyasi (Ire))
Maroochi is a four-year-old filly by one of the all-time great jump sires in Presenting, sire of outstanding chaser Denman, Gold Cup winner War Of Attrition, and a whole host of other top class horses. She is out of a daughter of the classy chaser Makounji, who won the Grade 2 Pendil Novices Chase at Kempton for the Waley-Cohen family (from whom we have leased Maroochi). She impressed in a bumper on debut and will be one to improve for hurdles and a step up in trip one day.

His National Hunt highlights include training Voy Por Ustedes to win the Champion Chase, and Katchit to win the Champion Hurdle the following year. Alan’s prowess as a flat trainer has never been more evident than this year at Royal Ascot, where he trained three winners during the meeting.
