Of Course You Can (GB)

2018 bay filly by Yeats (Ire) ex Free Thinking (GB) (Hernando (Fr))

This filly is by the four-time Ascot Gold Cup winner Yeats (also the sire of Lilly Pedlar), who had an excellent Cheltenham Festival this year as the sire of Grade 1 winners Chantry House and Flooring Porter, as well as numerous other top class jumpers over the last few years. The dam, Free Thinking, won a bumper before gaining all-important black type in a Listed bumper, and she was also a winner over hurdles. Free Thinking is a very well bred mare, being out of the wonderful race-mare Liberthine, who won the Topham Chase over the Grand National fences, before finishing 5th in the big race itself.
