This lovely colt, by Azamour, is in training with Sylvester Kirk in Lambourn.
Richard Hannon bought the horse at the December Yearling Sales with top Bloodstock agent Peter Doyle Sky Rocket is a beautifully put together young horse, with a good walk and a lovely intelligent outlook.
This youngster is by Azamour, a sire that has done exceptionally well since retiring to stud in 2006 having been the Champion older racehorse in 2005. He was a multiple Group One winner and has fathered a host of Group One winners in his own right, including Irish Oaks winner Covert Love and French Oaks heroine Valyra. His mother, Roseum, won five races and has had six winners from eight runners.
Sylvester had a fantastic season last year with over 40 winners from a string of just under 50 horses; this included 15 individual two-year-old winners and a strike rate of over 40% winners and placed horses. Sylvester has trained a number of winners for Thurloe included our very talented Group filly, Gracefully.
