Boardsmill Stud offer half brother to Ground Ball for sale at Goffs Landrover Sale

Boardsmill Stud’s sole entry in this year’s Goffs Landrover Sale (Tuesday May 29th) is Lot 10, a 4yo gelding by Anshan out of Bettyhill (Ardross).

This attractive gelding is a half brother to the J.P. McManus owned multiple black type winning chaser Ground Ball (9 wins and over €230,000 in prize money) and also the highly promising Mr Pointment (trained by Charles Egerton). Mr Pointment is the winner of a bumper and 2 hurdle races from only 6 starts to date.

His other starts include a 4th in the Grade 2 Bumper in Newbury and most recently he finished 5th behind Nicanor and Denman in the Royal & SunAlliance Novices Hurdle (Grade 1) at the Cheltenham Festival in March. He is an exciting novice chase prospect for the 2006/07 season.

This gelding’s two other older siblings are also winners, making Bettyhill the dam of 4 winners from 4 runners to date. Bettyhill’s only other foal is a 2 year old full brother to Ground Ball which realised €30,000 at this year’s February National Hunt Sale at Tattersalls and was purchased by Mark Pitman.

Boardsmill Stud’s gelding will be stabled in Barn A Box 31 and will be selling soon after 10am on Tuesday May 29th. Please contact us if you would like further details or click here to view PDF of Pedigree.
