We were delighted to be able to purchase Imperial Esprit at the Derby Sale in June 2017, at what could well prove to be a bargain price. He is an attractive son of Scorpion from the same pedigree cross as Might Bite. His sire Scorpion is producing some high quality winners including Might Bite, Don’t Touch It, Tell Us More and The Nipper. Imperial Esprit is a lovely loose moving horse who has great size, scope and balance. He has a very solid national hunt pedigree coming from the family of Diamond Harry, It’s a Snip, Drumlargan and Coin Man. Unlike many of the sire’s progeny he has a great temperament. Standing 16’ 2 he has plenty of size and will be suited by jumping a fence in time. We have enjoyed recent success with his sire with An Caisteal Nuadh. Imperial Esprit has done everything we have asked of him in his pre-training at Mount Top Stud, and is held in high regard. Despite his size he is very forward, and we would not anticipate waiting too long to see him on a race track. He will be heading to the UK in January 2018 to enter full training with Harry Fry.
