Shantou ex Artic Native (Be My Native)

A son of one of the hottest new sires Shantou out of a classic Be My Native dam line. A fine physical specimen, with good bone, size and scope. He has great athleticism and movement. After purchase he was being lunged and loose schooled, and broken before being turned out for the rest of the summer grass. He proved to be weak and backward on his return and ran in two Irish point to points at Tyrella to gain experience. Sadly he cracked his pelvis when travelling well on his second appearance and had a year off to recuperate. During his absence he grew substantially, and is still very much work in progress. After his pre-training at Mount Top Stud he was sent to Nigel Twiston-Davies in September 2014 to start his career on the track. Ran a cracker on debut to finish second in a hot bumper at Huntington behind Theo's Charm. Second in two novice hurdles before a couple of disappointing efforts in handicaps. Freshened up and with some small issues resolved he won at Uttoxeter in April by 9 lengths. He has made a solid start to his chasing career, winning on his debut at Doncaster and placed at Ffos Las and Doncaster in two runs since. He stays very well and we will be looking for opportunities over an extended trip over the next few months.
