Spring HIT/PTP Sale 2022

18 - 19 May

Lot 490 - Good Boy (FR) supp+

Purchaser: Not Sold (14000).

PTP Review: From the stable of Britain's champion point-to-point trainer, this horse lived up to his name when sent to Sandon in Staffordshire to make his racing debut. Having lined up in a two-mile point-to-point Flat race he was allowed to follow his rivals for a circuit, but as they rounded the final bend he was pushed clear, opened up a big gap in the home straight despite running a little green on the undulating surface, and won with plenty in hand by 12 lengths. He was then made favourite for Friday’s point-to-point bumper at Aintree, but finished unplaced. A son of the upwardly mobile stallion Diamond Boy, Good Boy is a half-brother to the Listed bumper winner and useful hurdler/chaser Eden Du Houx.
