Scorpion - Whites Cross (Lord Americo)
This imposing gelding was purchased from the prestigious Tattersalls Ireland August 2016 National Hunt Sale. The up and coming sire Scorpion was a triple Group 1 winner and his first crop of 7 yo’s include Graded Performers Don’t Touch It, Tell Us More, Blue Fashion, Great Try, Sir Scorpion and Give Me a Break to name but a few. Denis is a huge fan of Scorpion (the Stallion, not the Heavy Metal Band !) as he is the Sire of one the stable stars Jack the Wire. Jack won his maiden hurdle at the Galway Festival and followed up in a Graded Handicap at the Listowel Festival. As with a lot of Scorpion’s progeny this fella is good looking and has done everything asked of him so far. The plan would be to run in a bumper over the summer or in a Point to Point in earl Autumn. It is hoped this lad could follow in the footsteps of Denis’s recent Point to Point winners Jack the Wire, Cousin Oscar, Redemption Song, Broken Quest and Lady London who were either sold for nice profit or went on to greater things.
He is available for outright purchase or syndication. Please contact the yard to arrange a viewing and to discuss further.
