Racehorse Profile    

Spanish Beauty an April foal and by a sire who is reknowned for horses who tend to do well from the middle of their 2YO season and onwards into their 3YO careers, so we expect Sanish Beauty to progress right through the remainder of the 2016 season and flourish as a 3YO.  This filly is the sort which attracts her trainer - a good walker who is already a decent shape and who 'uses' herself when she moves.  Ollie Pears bought this filly in the knowledge that she would make up into a nice older horse.

Ollie told us "I was so surprised that she was affordable, as her Mother was just below Listed class, and she has a full brother who is rated in the high seventies after only a handful of starts [now rated 89 after 2 wins as a 3YO].  Paco Boy's tend to get better with experience and I think this filly will be just like that."

Prospective shareholders may be interested to learn that George William, her full brother, won a 7f Maiden a bit cheekily at short odds, and then went on to win a Class 4 Handicap over the same distance and is now rated 89. She has a half sister called Venus Grace who has won and been placed many times.

Being a bay filly, the sun really bounces off her coat and gives her an attractive look.  She has good muscle tone and from January 2016 onwards has grown substantially so that she is now a significant filly of over 16 hands.   Her Mother, Basque Beauty, never ran in anything less than Class 2 company, and was rated in the 90's and we are hoping that Spanish Beauty will prove to be similar once she starts racing in handicap company and over a trip of a mile. 

Ollie Pears commented "Her breeding really is excellent, and even she is only half as good as her Mother or Father, she will be capable of winning races for us. It's not like she has any confirmation issues - she is a clean, decent sort and I've been more than satisfield with her runs so far because we've expected her to be green, and also need the longer trip."

Ollie Pears bought her at Tattersalls sales and explained why he was drawn to this filly "She walked around the ring with purpose, and was from the Highclere draft of horses.  Usually you would be seeing their horses in the Book 1, as they tend to only breed from top class mares.  However, it was pouring down with rain at the time she went through the ring and she was sandwiched between a couple of poorer sorts, and I think she got overlooked."

The filly has an excellent temperament, and likes nothing more than being fussed over.  She is a really good looking individual, and stands out in the paddock when she walks around. Whilst her first three runs were in mid-field, she is bred to be coming to herself as a 3YO, and we are certain she will be a very competitive horse in 2017.

  Breeding Information

Yearling (2YO in 2015) Bay Filly (April 6th 2014)
By Paco Boy out of Basque Beauty (Nayef)

Spanish Beauty is by Paco Boy, one of the best British seven furlong and Milers in recent years.  Paco Boy has had a very good start to his stallion career in 2015, with plenty of stakes winners and this continued in 2016 with the winner of the 2000 guineas.  This filly is a chip off the old block, sporting a very similar white blaze down her head and nose as he Father. Paco Boy currently stands for £9,000 per covering.

The mare, Basque Beauty already has a gelding by Paco Boy called George William.  This full brother to the filly is trained by Richard Hannon, who trained Paco Boy himself, and showed up well in Class 4 Maiden company before winning two handicaps in 2016 and is now rated in the 80's. The mare has also had a filly by Royal Applause which has been placed on numerous occasions (second four times) and is rated in the mid 60's. 

Race Plans      

The race plans for Spanish Beauty are quite clear - she will have a winter break and then from late January be trained to be ready to race from around April onwards.  She loves a firmer surface, so we expect she will see the track more in summer than in spring and autumn.

The filly will contest handicaps over seven furlongs and up to ten furlongs - but we expect most of her racing will be over a mile.  She will be racing in Yorkshire, Northern England and Scotland from time to time.  The exact racecourses will depend on the races available to her and how her season develops.

If she moves through the ranks, we hope to send her to a couple of the major Northern tracks, such as York or Haydock, so as to have a tilt at some bigger p
rizes and enjoy days out at the Grade 1 racecourses.

Your online Racehorse Manager will provide full details of all developments in terms of the filly's progress and race planning as the season progresses.

Race Record        

Spanish Beauty has raced three times over inadequate trips and once over a mile on the All-Weather, and will be suited to good ground over a mile and further.

Value Guarantee        

We expect to get 2-5 runs and sometimes more from all our 3YO horses per share period, however, you should expect periods of no racing as a result of recuperation from injury or training setbacks.   This share period starts March 1st 2017 and runs through the turf season until November 1st 2017, although we will be reporting on the filly before the share period starts, should we have anything of importance to share with shareholders.

During the season the horse may be rested or have time away from the track to recover and it is quite normal for a flat horse to have periods of 3-6 weeks rest between races. Young horses are particularly susceptible to sore shins, bone chips and growing pains, and can need a greater time to recover between races.

We provide the following guarantee: Should this filly suffer a season ending injury which prevents her from not running at least twice during this share period, we will transfer shareholders to another, similar racehorse of our choosing, for the remainder of the winter season. We cannot pay prizemoney on any transfers, but all the other benefits of ownership, such as yard visits and badges for racing, will apply.

We expect demand for Owners Badges on racedays with this horse could be higher than normal. Whilst we have good relations with all the UK tracks, there are always limits to the number of people to whom we can provide badges. Owners Badges are always distributed fairly, but for any major handicap races the horse runs in, badges will be allocated on a ballot basis for this horse so that all shareholders have the same chance of receiving a free or discounted badge. You must expect that on some occasions we will be unable to provide free or discounted Owners Badges to every shareholder who wants them. However, we will always attempt to get access to the paddock for every shareholder at the meeting, even if they have not been allocated an owners badge. 

As a shareholder you must understand that we cannot guarantee your horses performance, a specific volume of runs (beyond our minimum guarantee) or that runs will be evenly spaced throughout the share period.  This is the chance you take when owning any racehorse and participating in this ownership experience.  If you will be disappointed with only 2-3 runs from your racehorse during the season, then please DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS OR ANY OTHER RACEHORSE, as you could be disappointed.  We believe in being crystal clear with our shareholders - any participation in racehorse ownership is a risk, and we are unable to make any refunds because of share periods which finish early due to injury or retirement - as training and livery fees for the horse still remain whether they are racing or not.  This is the chance all shareholders take, as we do ourselves, when participating in the ownership of a racehorse.
