By Scorpion ex Lead'er Inn (Supreme Leader)

Acquired from the Goff's Land Rover sale In June 2014.  An Caisteal Nuadh is a striking son of Scorpion, who is rapidly becoming one of the best young NH sires around. His racecourse debut came at Limerick in July 2016 where he was the easy winner of a bumper under Nina Carberry. He made his mark over hurdles when winning a maiden hurdle at Limerick in July 2017. We started the new year with his debut over fences when he finished a credible third behind Sutton Place, travelling well throughout the race but proving no match for the winner over the final couple of fences. We will find easier opportunities than his debut effort and he will be a better horse over fences than over hurdles, especially on better ground. Remains lightly raced as he has been difficult to train and keep sound, but has a good engine and there is a big race in him providing we can keep him fit and well.
