We were delighted to have purchased the outstandingly bred 3yr old filly, New Delhi.
Being an ex-Godolphin inmate you would expect no less than her breeding to be outstanding.
Her brother is the 5 time winner and RPR 101 rated Enlace, her dam was LISTED WINNER, multiple listed placed and GROUP 3 placed, Crossover.
New Delhi was trained by Mark Johnston and we have done very well with ex Johnston trained horses, Alborz, Eqleem & PracticallyPerfect to name just a few.
Regardless of her outstanding pedigree what we found interesting was being unraced at 2yrs old she was then ran 5 times in just over a month this season. For a filly that was backwards at 2yrs old, to be ran that quickly and so often in a short space of time is in our opinion was too much and the fact that she was heavily backed when finishing third clearly shows she was well thought of.
We do have a great record of taking these type of horses and doing well with them, apart from the horses mentioned above we also bought Mazaaher who had been trained by the well-known “top” yards and like New Delhi he too was in need of some TLC. Mazaaher had only ran 4 times in the past 2 years before we purchased him, since joining our string he’s been 1,2,2,2 in his last 6 starts, he had never been so consistent in his career
New Delhi will be trained by David Evans who does so well with this type and she is an interesting prospect.
