2016 bay gelding by Kayf Tara (GB) ex Kerada (Fr) (Astarabad (USA))
This gelding is by the outstanding jumps sire Kayf Tara, a multiple Group 1 winning stayer on the flat who has gone on to influence the National Hunt breed like few others in modern history. He has sired countless top-class jumps horses, including the wonderful Thistlecrack, Special Tiara and the star Novice Chaser of last season, Edwardstone.
The dam, Kerada, was a talented horse herself, winning a bumper, over hurdles and over fences and was placed in a Listed race. All of her runners to date have won races, including the talented Tarada (trained by Oliver Sherwood) and Marada, a very likeable mare who won multiple races and was Grade 2 placed in front of our own Lilly Pedlar – carrying a lot more weight! This is a great family and Trevada is a bumper winner who will be seen at his best when he goes chasing over a trip.

Oliver’s racing career began as a jockey, with a total of 96 winners and an amateur championship to his name. He learnt the training game from one of the best in Arthur Moore, before moving back to England to continue his education with Champion Trainer Fred Winter. Oliver set up training from Rhonehurst Stables in Lambourn, from where he trained over 1300 winners, before moving down the road to Neardown Stables in 2021. He has trained many Grade 1 winners, and few will forget his most successful horse in recent seasons, Many Clouds, who completed the remarkable feat of winning the Henessey (Ladbrokes) Chase and the Grand National in the same season.
