Deva Racing presents an exciting opportunity to take a share in a five-year-old son of Oscar, in training with Gordon Elliott! The horse in question, Grange Road, has run with promise in three Irish points and now has unlimited potential as he embarks on a career under rules.
Grange Road’s reputation was such that he was sent off a 6/4 favourite under Jamie Codd ahead of his debut in November. He showed up well for much of the journey that day, ultimately keeping on for a creditable fifth. The form of that contest looks strong, with the fourth having won since, whilst the first three all subsequently changed hands for big money at the sales.
Grange Road would again finish in mid-division on his second start, before giving a clear indicator of his enormous promise when placed at Lingstown in March. On that occasion he stayed on particularly strongly after the last to take a close-up third behind a horse that has since gone intotraining with Joseph O’Brien.
This latent racecourse promise is backed up by a very eyecatching NH pedigree. Grange Road is out of the unracedPresenting mare Niamh’s Away, who is a half-sister to the promising Olly Murphy-trained point/bumper/hurdles winner Presence of Mind. This is the family of four-time Grade-1 winning chaser (including two Ryanairs and an RSA) Albertas Run and the Grade-1 winning hurdler Mister Morose.
The pairing of Oscar with daughters of Presenting is also a well-established path to success, and has previously resulted in the outstanding Paisley Park, amongst numerous others.
It goes without saying that Grange Road could hardly be in better hands as he prepares to continue his development under rules. In a relatively short space of time Gordon has trained the winners of three Grand Nationals, a Gold Cup, as well as well over 50 other Grade-1 winners.
He has now assembled a virtually unrivalled cast of stars at his Cullentra House base, including Envoi Allen, Samcro and Delta Work, and this exclusive opportunity to take a share in one of his charges is not to be missed.
