We purchased Stung For Cash in a private deal before he went to the sales. This handsome son of Scorpion, who is the same sire as Might Bite, is a lovely stamp of a horse. Stung For Cash stands at a big 16.2 hands. His future will be over a fence. We hope he’s going to be an exciting three miler chaser and beyond in time.
Stung For Cash raced twice in Irish P2P races. On debut and despite running green, Stung For Cash stayed on strongly into 3rd place. The winner was purchased by Willie Mullins for £82,000, the 4th placed horse was sold for £30,000. On his next start, Stung For Cash dead heated for first place and was unlucky not to win outright. The horse he shared first place with, made £48,000 at the sales. Both starts came on heavy ground.
We’ll run Stung For Cash over hurdles to start with and maybe even take in a bumper. He’s a flashy looking gelding with a big stride, he'll have no problems on deep winter ground.
We’re delighted to have secured such a nice young horse, he’s one for the long-term future and looks a smart prospect.
Stung For Cash will be trained by Tom Lacey.
