Deva Racing are thrilled to be able to sell shares in the exciting recent bumper winner, Full Of Light, who is going to be trained by acclaimed trainer, Nicky Henderson, from his historic Seven Barrows yard.
Full Of Light is by top-class sire, Leading Light, who was a champion racehorse in his own right, when trained by Aiden O’Brien. At three years old he won the St.Leger before progressing and winning the world famous, Ascot Gold Cup as a four year old.
His dam, Scartara, a winner herself in France when trained by master trainer, Andre Fabre, has gone on to become a fantastic broodmare. She has had seven foals hit the track and six of them have managed to win, including the highly rated, Pinnacle Panda.
Previously trained by Mags Mullins, in Ireland, Full Of Light ran out a convincing winner of his only bumper, despite showing signs of immaturity in the closing stages. This immaturity is hardly surprising, due to it only being the five-year-olds second career run and can be seen as a positive, with improvement assured.
Unlike many bumpers, his race had real substance to the form. The eventual second was not beaten far in a Punchestown bumper just three weeks previously, while the hot favourite trained by Willie Mullins, who was beaten just half a length in a strong bumper on debut, finished fourth.
With proven ability and to be trained in a yard that is renowned for producing stars, there is every reason to believe that Full Of Light will take his owners to all of the big racecourses.
