Racehorse Profile    

Roaring Rory is a good looking son of Sakhee's Secret and Ollie Pears was pleased to bring him back from the Tattersals Yearling sales in 2014.  Rory has won for his shareholders every single year he has been in training.  We won his first race after a few runs as a 2YO and then  in 2016 he won again, and was second twice by less than a head as a 3YO. He has already won THREE TIMES in 2017 - once on the turf and twice on the All-Weather surfaces. He is a compact and powerful sprinting type and he is by a sire (Sakhee's Secret) who's progeny tend to train on and do well as mature animals.

Being by a sire with proven sprinting abilities and out of a sprint winning mare at two, Rory has already proved he can win - when landing a five-furlong contest at Wolverhampton on their tapeta surface in August 2015, and then winning a five furlong race at Beverley in April 2016.  He also showed he can cope with the fibresand surface at Southwell when winning as he liked in November 2017.  He is a sprinter, like his parents, and as a result can race more often than other horses. 

Ollie says of the gelding "He's a good looking, wide faced gelding, and is a real delight to have around the yard.  He isn't massive but he's a strong gelding and is one of the stars of the yard.  He has continued to mature well every year we've had him.  I feel he will only get better. He has always walked well, and has no vices whatsoever.  His pedigree is solid, and he comes from a family of winners, as he has proved himself."

Roaring Rory is always competitive, running in handicaps, and sometimes sellers or claiming races where the chance of losing him is minimal - but the really important thing about this horse is that he is a real trier.  He never gives up, and has won races when seemingly without a chance two furlongs out - but then stricks his head down and runs for the line when others around him are giving up. Ollie has clear plans for the gelding - to win more races!  He will make the most of the All-Weather racecourses, but through the summer Rory loves it around Beverley, Thirsk, Catterick and Newcastle.

Ollie remarked "He is such a great horse to have around - he rarely gets anything wrong with him and he loves his job.  He can be ridden by anyone because he's so placid - but put a set of silks on his back and he becomes a different racehorse." 

Roaring Rory will race for the remainder of the 2017 winter season, with a short break late March/Early April before going onto turf when the sprint races at the Northern tracks start up again.  We fully expect him to race regularly, as he has done through the last three seasons.

Roaring Rory also has a great temperament - although he will voice 
his displeasure by whinnying loudly on occasion - hence the first part of his name!  However, he is quite trusting of people and is very inquisitive.  He is a standing dish in Ollie's stables and is immediately loved by everyone who comes into contact with him! He is a great horse for a first time owner and really gives value for money.  He has sold out of his shares every season.

  Breeding Information

Yearling (5YO in 2018) Chesnut Colt (March 4th 2013)
By Sakhee's Secret out of Barbieri (Encosta de Lago)

This colt has a decent pedigree, being out of the top second season sire Sakhee's Secret, which was a multiple Group One winning sprinter at two and three years old.  His favoured distance was six furlongs and he won the Darley Cup and Cathedral stakes, earning over £500,000 in win and place prizemoney.  He has proved himself to be a decent sire with plenty of winners in his first two crops and was the top second season sire.  In the last few years his progeny have managed to be Group placed and provided Listed success.

Barbieri was a winner of a decent Maiden, and was rated 90 at the end of her two-year-old season.  She was retired to stud after her 3YO career and this early colt is her first offspring. Barbieri's three brothers and sisters were decent, indeed her half sister won in decent Maiden company and went on to be placed in Listed and Group races over sprint distances.  

Race Plans      

The race plans for Roaring Rory are quite straightforward.  The fact that this gelding acts well on both the artificial and grass surfaces means that he should provide his shareholders with plenty of racing, as he is robust and acts well on the All-Weather circuits and on firmish ground on turf.

Ollie will give him a short break in late March/early April before he heads into the flat, turf season.  Ollie is looking to maintain his record of having won every single season, and we would be delighted if he can match his great efforts in 2017 when he recorded three wins.
Rory has been rated between 65 and 70 for most of his career - and he will race mainly in sprint handicaps, usually in Grade 5 and 6.  Because he is a sprinter and robust with it, he runs regularly, and assuming he remains fit and healthy throughout the eight months of the turf season we expect plenty of fun will be had with him.  To date, the gelding hasn't had any health issues at all and runs regularly.

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

Value Guarantee        

We expect to get 3-6 runs and sometimes more from all our more mature flat 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 April 2nd 2018 and runs through the summer flat season, finishing on November 1st 2018, although we will be reporting on the gelding 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.  

For this gelding we offer the following guarantee:  If due to injury or retirement, gelding's season is cut short and will not race again, and he has not raced at least twice, we will replace him with a similar horse for the remainder of the 2018 turf season. Please note that we are unable to pay prizemoney on any replacements and the replacement will be a horse of our own choosing. 

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 there is a chance 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 experience with a racehorse.
