Available Horses: David O'Meara


We’re delighted to confirm the well bred Spiorad has joined David O’Meara for 2019 following his recent purchase from Horses In Training Sales.

He’s already shown a good level of ability in tough races when not quite ready to do himself justice. It’s highly likely he’ll leave that form well behind in 2019 for David.

From a family David knows well, Spiorad is big, strong gelding with plenty of bone. A fine, imposing type, he’s bred to mature and progress into a decent horse with time.

We’ve seen time and again David’s ability to improve horses from others with seemingly countless examples where David has turned water into wine.

Purchasing these hugely expensive horses to produce second hand from some of racing's top trainers has proved a hugely successful policy for David, who has saddled any number of big race winners with horses that started their careers at a different postcode.

David’s most prolific success rate buying from elsewhere is from Dermot Weld’s stable. The first horse purchased was Powerful Presence, who cost just £800 and went on to be rated 93, winning nine races and finishing runner-up eight times.

Since then David has taken on a further 12 horses with no less than 11 of the horses purchased winning for their new owners.

With horse racing nothing can ever be certain but David’s 92% strike rate with his D K Weld recruits suggests this is one statistic that can be relied upon.

If the numbers were not impressive enough consider David has never spent more than 22,000gns on these horses, and has saddled five of them to be rated over 100, with two going on to win Group races.

All of the most successful horses joined David in the autumn of their three-year-old careers so Spiorad fits the profile of the more successful recruits like a glove.

We’re confident David has once again sourced us a great prospect for a bargain price.
