          Very Exciting Winning 4 y-o Filly

Heure de Gloire produced a deeply impressive performance when winning over hurdles at Pau on Christmas Eve on her racecourse debut, beating horses with previous experience in decisive fashion.  The clock certainly backs up what appeared an excellent effort.  Indeed, her time was faster than the year older colts and geldings hurdle run over the same course and distance but on better ground earlier in the day.

She confirmed that potential when runner-up on her British debut at Huntingdon on 23rd March, giving best only to a horse that had been tried in Listed company previously.  She was conceding 6lbs to the winner and emerges from the race as the best horse at the weights.

She is bred in the purple too, being by the excellent jumps sire Kapgarde who has produced the likes of Clan des Obeaux and A Plus Tard.  She is a full sister to Farces Attrapes who is multiple winner over hurdles and fences from 2-3 miles.

Heure de Gloire looks a really exciting recruit and with the mares' programme so well-supported nowadays there is no end of good opportunities for her.

We currently also have a number of very nice young horses for sale.  They are all unraced and un-named - you can call them what you like (so long as the BHA doesn't mind!).

4 y-o gelding by Milan

2017 Bay Gelding
By Milan
Ex Jessies Delight
By Multiplex

Beautifully bred, attractive youngster for sale.

This four year old gelding is a son of jumps super-sire Milan, who has produced top notch offspring such as Jezki, Santini and One For Arthur to name but a few, whilst his dam line is also rich in quality.

His mother, Jessie’s Delight is a daughter of For More who was successful on the flat and over hurdles during her racing career in France and she has since excelled as a broodmare, producing numerous winners.  Most notable among those are Grade 1 winning hurdler David’s Charm and Junior who won the Ascot Stakes at Royal Ascot for me as well as the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival.  Furthermore, with Celtic Son (who won seven times for my father, including a Grade 2 chase) also in the extended pedigree, it is reasonable to say that we know the family very well. 

He looks a nice prospect for the future and as if that wasn’t good enough, you can name him yourself.

4 y-o gelding by Getaway

2017 Bay Gelding
By Getaway (FR)
Ex Dublin (GER)
By Azamour (IRE)

I am pleased to offer this well-related four-year-old gelding by leading jumps sire Getaway, who has produced the likes of Graded winners Verdana Blue, Talkischeap and Getabird as well as many other quality performers.

His dam, Dublin was a winner on the flat in France at 1m7f and was placed on numerous other occasions and there is a real emphasis on stamina in his pedigree.  Further down his page he is related to our Greatwood Hurdle winner Dell’ Arca as well as Listed winners Dalarna and Descartes.

A well-made, athletic gelding who will start out in bumpers, he is a smashing prospect going forward.

Ex Moncherie (IRE)
By Azamour (IRE)


Chaser in the making!

I am pleased to offer this four year old gelding by Malinas, the sire of Graded jumps winners Medinas, Mister Malarky and Black Thunder.  He is the first foal from Moncherie who was a 2-2¼m winner over hurdles and was placed at upto 2m7f over fences in Ireland.

Looking through his pedigree, he descends from the family of Valiramix who was a top-class hurdler for my father as well as Grade 2 winning hurdler De Valira. 

I had to have him at the sales - he is a beautifully put together gelding and already stands 16.2hh with the scope to grow a little further yet.  He looks a lovely prospect whose future will eventually lie over fences.

4 y-o gelding by Kapgarde

2017 Bay Gelding
By Kapgarde
Ex Bella Giaconda
By Goofalik

Decimus Racing is delighted to be offering for sale one-tenth shares in the above three year old gelding. He’s currently being broken in, after which he’ll be moving to David’s powerful stable.

He was bought privately in Ireland prior to the Land Rover Sales, for which he was entered. The plan for him for this season is to bring him along gently with the objective of running in a bumper in the Spring. However, he is very much a horse for the future and we expect him to come to his own when he runs in three mile chases.

He’s a beautifully bred and very well put together individual by Kapgarde, who is the sire of a number of top class performers, including Clan des Obeaux , A Plus Tard, Mr Thriller (also trained by David Pipe), Dolos , Fakir D’Oudairies and Edgardo Sol. 

His half-brother, Square Beaujon, had winnings of €222K and was rated 149. Other half-brothers by a lesser sire won and were placed in France.

His dam won four races in Germany and was placed eight times.

The second dam produced seven winners, including the top class German performers Belcone and Beatrice. As you can see, the family is steeped in winners!

He has already been loose schooled in Ireland and jumps very well. He arrived in England in August. He’ll spend his initial period being broken, ridden and educated on the gallops after which he’ll move to Pond House.

A payment of £6750 secures a tenth share in him, with all costs being covered by a monthly fee of £190 from 1 October.

David says of him ‘He has a perfect conformation with a high class pedigree and could go the very top.’
