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. Coming from a  Supreme Leader dam line he is bred to do the job. He is a very correct horse, with strength, size and athleticism.  A chaser in the making he was in pre-training  during 2014 at Mounttop Stud in Ireland, where he showed plenty of ability. He left Mount Top Stud int he Spring of 2016 to join Gordon Elliot who also trains his full brother Casual Approach. His debut came at Limerick in July 2016 where he was the easy winner of a bumper under Nina Carberry. He is still mentally and physically immature, but has ability and is a very nice horse in the making. We ran him back to quickly at Galway and he was an unlucky faller on his debut over hurdles at Down Royal. We consider An Caisteal Nuadh to be the most exciting chase prospect we have had in the past few years, but he can be expected to make his mark in hurdle races along the way. .
