The Racegoers Club are delighted to announce a fantastic ownership opportunity with Malcolm Jefferson and a share in two exciting horses that will provide year round enjoyment for just £475.
Running until the 30 June 2018 – this ownership group includes the popular eight-year-old mare Chilly Miss who is back in training for the Racegoers Club as well as a beautifully bred four-year-old filly called Sammamish.
Sammamish - Four-year-old Filly
By leading jumps sire Oscar and out of Issaquah, Sammamish is possibly the nicest bred National Hunt horse the Racegoers Club have ever had.
Oscar, a French Derby runner-up, was responsible for some of the top jumps stars in recent memory including Gold Cup winner Lord Windermere, RSA Chase hero O’Faolains Boy and Champion Chase winner Big Zeb.
He also sired Champion Hurdle winner Rock On Ruby as well as top class hurdlers Peddlers Cross, At Fishers Cross and Oscar Whisky.
He retired from stud in 2015 and so this filly will be one of the last Oscar offspring to go into training. His most recent progeny include this year’s Irish Grand National winner Our Duke and Grade One winning novice hurdler Finian’s Oscar so there are high hopes that she can prove just as good.
Issaquah was also trained by Malcolm Jefferson and ran in the 2009 Mares Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival as well as finishing second at the Aintree Festival in 2009 and 2010 before running a career best third in the 2010 Swinton Hurdle to earn a rating of 145.
This filly will be her second foal to hit the track, with the first one, Sizing At Midnight, recently being sold for £90,000 to Alan and Ann Potts. Another full brother to Sammamish recently sold for €45,000.
With multiple Cheltenham Festival winners and with a winner at the 2017 Aintree Festival, Malcolm Jefferson has trained for us since 2013 and remains at the top of the game. In his stable at the moment he has 2017 Arkle runner up Cloudy Dream as well as 2017 Aintree Festival Grade One runner up Mount Mews and 2015 Aintree winner Cyrus Darius.
Malcolm Jefferson said: “I’m delighted to be training again for the Racegoers Club. She is a nice filly and we got her from Ireland where she was broken in at two and we’ve already done quite a bit with her.
“We’ve had her in with us now a few weeks and if all goes to plan she would be ready to run in bumpers in a couple of months. She’s had quite a bit of education already and although she’s not the biggest, she's strong and got a bit of length about her.”
Assistant trainer, Ruth Jefferson added: “I’m hopeful she will be quite smart. We trained Issaquah who turned out to be very useful so we know the family and how she should mature. She’s got a bit of quirkiness about her which is often a sign of the good ones so we’ll see.
“With Chilly Miss back in I think the Group will work well as we should always have one horse on the go and their paths will cross so we could have two running together as well.”
A legend for the Racegoers Club, Chilly Miss is back and should be ready to run from July onwards. She loves the good ground available in the summer and will hopefully return as good as ever. During her career for the Racegoers Club she won three National Hunt races and finished in the top three a further seven times, making her placed record in National Hunt races 9 out of 12 – an impressive 75%. She also ran on the flat for us and there should be plenty of opportunities for her through the summer and autumn.
As well as the chance to see Chilly Miss and the four-year-old filly on the racecourse, you will get the chance to visit Malcolm’s yard for behind the scene’s tours and exclusive insight from Malcolm and his team.
