SURREY THUNDER

We are absolutely delighted to buy a Le Havre (pictured) colt who we have named Surrey Thunder, who we bought with the help of Steve Hillen Bloodstock at the Arqana Breeze, the same combination that bought us Surrey Hope !

Le Havre was a great horse, especially at 7-8f, winning the Prix du Jockey-Club (Group 1) and the Prix Djebel where he smashed the Maisons-Laffitte track record.  On the sire side, his grand dam is a half sister to the massively influential Polar Falcon. His sire Noverre was the champion 3 year old miler in Europe in 2001.

We would think that 7-8f is a good distance to start, but there is staying influence in the dam side including the great hurdler Zarkandar and Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe winner Zarkava.

He is in training with Joe Tuite who will be patient although we expect three runs before the end of the season, but already we are seeing signs that he could be a very nice horse indeed. His debut, under an easy ride, was extremely eye-catching, third against more experienced horses at Sandown despite getting badly boxed in.

He has an entry into the Criterium de la Vente d’Octobre at Longchamp on Arc Saturday and we are also discussing plans to enter the French 2000 Guineas. Definitely one to watch !
