Exciting prospects for the new jumps season

Exciting prospects for the new jumps season

11.20 | Tue 11 Jun 24 | Racehorses

It lakes a long time to get a racehorse ready for the track and although we're only in June the new jumps horses are now coming in for training.

Most horses destined for a jumps career enter training when they are older than their counterparts on the flat and here we show you what's in store later in 2024.


Jumps horses cannot race until the autumn of their three-year-old season when they can compete in juvenile novices hurdle races. The bulk of their first three years of life is spent growing and then coming into pre-training which would be in late spring or summer of that season. However, many horses need longer and may not come in for training until they are four or even, for bigger horses, five years old.

Brooklyn Lullaby

Owner Jim Brown has previously had success with the likes of Pardon Me and Steel City and he has sent us two new horses.

Four-year-old Brooklyn Lullaby is out of a daughter of Andromache, who was the dam of Pardon Me. A year older at five, Brooklynese is by Scorpion and out of a daughter of Serraval, who was the dam of Steel City. We know the family well the horses sent by Jim have always started their education before they arrive with us here at New House Farm.

Sir Percy x Ringaround

We also have a big five-year-old mare by Sir Percy out of Ringaround who will make her debut later in 2024. She's yet to be named. Ringaround was retired from the paddocks last year and we have plnety of her offspring who tend to have plenty of size and scope about them.

Schiaparelli x Bella

Also coming into training from a family we like is a very nice gelding by Schiaparelli out of Bella. He is a half-brother to the four-year-old Passing Glance gelding who came in last year and will debut later this year. He's a horse who has shown plenty of ability and we were delighted to secure his half-brother last year.

Dartmouth x Pepite Rose

A couple of very nice horses owned by Mrs Hartley came to us last year and spent their two-year-old season out in the field growing into their substantial frames. They're now in for training and are showing the right signs. Both bay fillies are by Dartmouth. The lighter coloured filly is out of Falcon's Gunner and is a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Sam's Gunner. The other filly is out of nine-time winning black type mare Pepite Rose. A winner over hurdles and fences she was rated 157 at her peak and we hope she's passed on her ability to her three-year-old daughter.
