Whiskey Lullaby

Having enjoyed so much success already with our mares bought by bloodstock agent Tom Malone and trained by Paul Nicholls, we were very excited when Tom approached us with what he believes is another high-class filly. Whiskey Lullaby is a four-year-old by Stowaway – the same successful sire as our very own Posh Trish (winner of six races to date including two Listed hurdles and one Listed NH Flat race), as well as multiple Grade 1 performers Outlander, Champagne Fever and The Worlds End.

This big, scopey filly was bought from Ireland having shown a great deal of promise in her only point to point at Toomebridge on 5 October 2019. She finished second that day in testing conditions and really caught the eye with how well she jumped and travelled. You can watch the video here, she is in black with a green cap. 
 
As well as her impressive physique she also boasts a truly wonderful pedigree.  She is out of a half-sister to Petit Robin (167-rated and Queen Mother Champion Chase-placed as well as many other top two-mile hurdles and chases) and to the dam of Anibale Fly (174-rated and Gold Cup-placed).  It is a top-class French National Hunt pedigree, moreover one which has particularly excelled with runners in the UK and Ireland. 
 
Whilst Whiskey Lullaby has a lot to live up to joining our strong team of Listed winners and Graded placed Nicholls-trained mares, we think she is a hugely exciting prospect and are delighted to have secured her.  Paul Nicholls has been extremely complimentary about this mare, telling us that she completely transformed since her arrival and was catching the eye on the gallops. This was clearly the case as she showed tremendous potentail on her her first outing in a bumper at Newbury at the end of February where she finished second to the highly fancied Nicky Henderson runner Gran Luna, coming from way off the pace to finish only three quarters of a length behind the winner.

Whiskey made her seasonal and hurdle debut at Ayr where she very well in extremely testing conditions to come second to a good mare who relished the conditions. Next time out Whiskey Lullaby didn't run as well as we expected but still manged to come a close third.
