Our first National Hunt horse Benny’s Bridge with Fergal O’Brien has been terrific fun, finishing third in the 2018 Goffs UK £50,000 Spring Sales Bumper and winning a competitive and valuable handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in 2019. He was a great find at the Doncaster Store Sales last year, so why wouldn’t we go back and attempt to repeat the success? We purchased this stunning gelding by Black Sam Bellamy and the more we saw of him at the sales, the more everybody loved him. He is a very athletic 4yo with good breeding, conformation and a great outlook.
This gelding is by the high-class National Hunt stallion Black Sam Bellamy, the sire of many top-class horses including Gr.1 Long Walk Hurdle winner Sam Spinner and Gr.2 Cotswold Chase and Cheltenham Gold Cup-placed The Giant Bolster. Although she only ran once, his dam Sylvan Wings was highly-regarded and ran a most encouraging race in a National Hunt Flat race at Cheltenham. This is a very strong NH family and the dam is a half-sister to six winners including the classy hurdlers and chasers Captain Khedive and Crack On. Our gelding is the first surviving progeny of racing age from the mare and he looks a really high-class racing prospect.
UPDATE: Fergal O’Brien thinks a tremendous amount of Black Sam’s Silver and he says that he wouldn’t swap him. He has had a racecourse gallop and a piece of work on the Lambourn gallops, showing a great deal of ability each time. Fergal had been planning to win a National Hunt Flat race with him at the end of the 2018/19 season but he is a proper National Hunt horse that he is simply not prepared to risk on fast ground and he will be having a spring break. Fergal is eyeing some big bumper races with this strapping gelding from the early part of next season and he believes that he is going to be a serious racehorse and ultimately a very classy chaser.
We organise regular visit to see our horses in training, but with Fergal O’Brien there is the added benefit that you can visit your horse most Saturday mornings, which gets you even more involved as an owner.
