In training

Venedegar

Gelding
DOB: 10 May 2016
Dubawi x Cara Fantasy (Sadler's Wells)
Owner: Windflower Overseas and J L Dunlop

This colt comes from a very smart family and he is closely related to four triple digit performers. His half brothers Elusive Pimpernel and Palavicini have both gone on to be stallions and his full brother Prince Gagarin won in Listed company for us and was also placed in a Gr.3 over 10f.

Venedegar is by the great Dubawi, and made a most pleasing debut at Sandown over seven furlongs in July. Although slightly slowly away, he made eye-catching headway early in the home straight before just tiring a little late on to take fifth. 

He was then second on his next two starts, and finished his season with another fifth placed finish at Sandown, his final two runs over the mile trip. It was disappointing not to break his maiden as a two-year-old, but hopefully he can return to training at three as an improved performer. 

His seasonal comeback at Doncaster proved something of an anti-climax, so we hope that it was a case of feelig the unseasonably quick ground and blowing away the cobwebs. His work has been good in the spring, so we are not giving up on him just yet.
