We secured Flash De Clerval away from the sales for a price of £30,000. This exciting young horse has shown plenty of ability in Ireland whilst holds a strong jumping pedigree. Standing at a nice 16.1h, Flash De Clerval will have no problem jumping a fence in time.
Flash De Clerval ran four times in Ireland before we purchased him. He would have been third on debut but fell at the last hurdle. The winner of the race is now rated 130. The form of his efforts at Gowran Park and Cork are also working out nicely.
Flash De Clerval has only raced over two miles so far but is bred for middle distance trips, he’ll appreciate going up in distance and is proven on soft ground. He's a lovely long-term prospect that will give his owners plenty of fun in the years ahead.
Flash De Clerval will be trained by Harry Whittington.
