In training


Bay Gelding
DOB: 02 Feb 2015
Lemon Drop Kid x Unnatural (Proud Citizen)
Owner: Mrs Kate Smith

This colt is a son of the American stallion Lemon Drop Kid who is the sire of Gr.1 winner Cannock Chase, the dual Gr.2 winner Bronze Cannon and numerous high-class horses in the US, such as the Grade 1 winner Richard's Kid. He is also the sire of one of our star performers, Red Verdon.

Grandscape's dam Unnatural was placed twice in Japan and her dam Sahara Star won the Gr.3 Molecomb Stakes and was placed in the Gr.2 Lowther Stakes. She went on to produce the Flying Childers winner Land of Dreams, herself the dam of the multiple Gr.1 winner and successful sire Dream Ahead

Grandscape showed ability on both starts in 2017 when finishing fourth in useful Novice events, and has graduallly been stepped up in trip as a three-year-old. Midway through 2018 he was purchased by the Smith family to provide their daughter Sophie with some opportunities in amateur races.

The new partnership finished a fine fifth on their first outing together at Catterick and a narrow second at Wolverhampton next time out, before racing to a very impressive victory at Redcar in October. One more run last year at Nottingham saw Grandscape and Sophie finish an honourbale fourth, before the horse was put away.  

He returned to the fray at Doncaster at the Lincoln meeting over a mile and a half, and finished an excellent fourth under another well judged ride from Sophie. This versatile horse should give his pilot an awful lot of fun during the coming months.
