Ballywood (FR)

Ballywood is a 16.1hh four-year-old by Ballingarry out of a mare who has bred two other winners in France. Impressive over hurdles in his native country where he won and was placed, Alan King was patient with him last winter after a slight setback. 

Ballywood is in good health and at the Highclere National Hunt parade of jumpers quite caught the eye. Blessings in disguise come in all shapes sizes and last winter’s absence may well determine Alan King to take advantage of our four-year-old’s allowance over fences. As a three-year-old Ballywood finished a close second in his only steeplechase so far, at Fontainebleau, to a Guillaume Macaire ‘hotpot’.

Alan will be looking to run up a sequence with Ballywood who we can anticipate building on the early start to his jumping career.
