I was chatting to Nicky Henderson recently and he was raving about the store horses that he had bought with Anthony Bromley.  I immediately became interested as Nicky went on to explain what good value store horses represent versus buying the winner of a Point to Point a bit further down the road.  A few days later I set off to Seven Barrows and asked Nicky to show me the four that he was most excited about.  I went with Rolf Johnson and I must say we were very impressed with the quartet but one stood out like a sore thumb, which was this cracking son of star National Hunt sire Getaway. 

Anthony Bromley bought him from Michael Carthy of Kilmoney Cottage Stud in Ireland.  Michael is a renowned breeder of top class National Hunt horses including Nicky’s superstar chaser Altior.
