Available Horses: David O'Meara

Mayson filly Feb 2020


Country Carnvial

We’re tremendously excited to offer the chance to own the first foal to race out of the talented, Listed-placed Rural Celebration, one of the most popular horses to ever represent our owners on the racecourse.

This two-year-old filly is by Group 1 July Cup winner Mayson, a fine sire responsible for lots of good horses, such as Hambleton’s Maystar, who won the prestigious Al Rayyan Stakes in Doha in December.

Her dam will need little introduction to many, being out of Rural Celebration (pictured). Rural was a mare we raced with great distinction over several years. She herself is from a great family of solid, quality horses that tend to be precocious, train on well and have lots of ability.

Rural Celebration was a case in point. She went close on her racecourse debut in the spring of her two-year-old season and won on her final start as six-year-old, running arguably her best ever race.

The Listed placed seven-time winner won in every season she raced and placed a further 15 times. She was famously tough - rarely running a bad race with one leading rider saying she was so game she'd have run through a brick wall for you.

David tells us the filly has inherited plenty of her mother's traits, notably her speed and a great attitude in all she does at home.

Our trainer further reports Country Carnival is in his most forward group of two-year-olds and is doing everything very easily, impressing him and those that have ridden her in her work.

She’s fully expected to be an early season runner and is a filly we can't wait to see in the beige and blue this spring. Looking further ahead, David has entered the filly in the big October two-year-old sales race at Newmarket.

Owners in this syndicate will be owning alongside David O'Meara, who is retaining a leg in this filly.

In summary, this is an exciting opportunity to get involved with the first progeny of one of the most talented and honest horses we've ever had the pleasure to race, owning alongside your trainer.

Country Carnival looks and trains like she's a chip off the old block. Let's hope she is!
