Bay gelding by GOLDEN HORN ex Althania (Noverre)

(Trainer: Hughie Morrison, East Ilsley)

We purchased MAKSUD from the Shadwell dispersal sale at the Tattersalls Horse In Training Sale last October. MAKSUD was unraced at two years for John & Thady Gosden but came highly recommended by Shadwell Racing Manager Angus Gold.

MAKSUD is by Golden Horn who was a multiple Group One winner and Champion three-year-old in 2015 winning the Derby and the Eclipse;  he also went on to win the Arc de Triomphe.   He is now proving to be a rather her good National Hunt sire as well as being responsible for some very useful performers on the flat.  The recent Grade 2 winner  Stag Horn is now one of the leading lights for the Ballymore Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham.

This fine big horse has the make and shape of a smashing dual-purpose prospectAs our bloodstock agent Anthony Bromley said when we bought Maksud: “He is a lovely stamp of a horse, and I like the sire particularly.  He is a good-looking, easy-moving horse who has gone through his paces and will be ready for action in the Spring of 2022”.

He has gone into training with Hughie Morrison who has had a lot of success as a dual purpose trainer, most recently with the Grade 1 hurdler Not So Sleepy.
