Garswood colt

Garswood colt

This strong colt looks every inch a two-year-old and is certainly bred to be – he’s a half-brother to three winning youngsters, two of whom Karl Burke trained.

Karl Burke has a fine record of buying quality horses on a budget. Group 3 winning two-year-old Comedy (21,000 euros) is just one good recent example of the sort of bargains Karl can find. There have been countless others of course and hopes are high that Karl has once again unearthed a talented youngster in this lad.

This colt is a strong, well-proportioned sort who really uses himself well when exercising. He’s impressed everyone who’s worked with him during the early stages of his career at Spigot Lodge, thriving on the work he’s been given.

He’s by Group 1 winner Garswood, a sire Karl really likes. Karl actually trained Garswood’s best British runner to date and has a particularly fine record with the sire - Splendidly the winner of his first two two-year-old starts in 2019 being the latest quality Garswood Karl has trained.

His dam, Mysterious Girl, has had three winners from her four foals to date, all of who were winning two-year-olds. Karl has trained two of those winners, Swissterious, a winning two-year-old with a peak official rating of 101 and Insania, a two-time winning two-year-old with a peak rating of 83.

Karl feels this colt is every at least the equal of those winners at this stage of his career and was amazed he was able to secure him at the level he did. He feels he’ll be another winning youngster for the mare and is delighted with the progress the colt has made since arriving at Spigot.

In summary, this lad will be trained by Karl who knows the family well. He looks strong and early and sure to make a two-year-old.
