|Dam||Don't Forget Shoka|
We heard about Celtic Flames' win as he impressed onlookers with his 'Blistering turn of foot' to win on debut. He looks a tough hardy type who will be great on all surfaces and who should do well in bumpers before hurdling and, the thing he is made for, chasing.
His sire Celtic Swing was an outstanding two year old winning the Racing Post Trophy over a mile by an incredible twelve lengths., leading him to be voted top two year old at the Cartier Awards that year. As a three year old he beat Poliglote in the French Derby and was a cnvincing winner of the Greenham Stakes. He is the sire of both flat and NH winners including Desertmore Stream who has won four times over hurdles including at the Galway Festival. Celtic Flames' dam won on the flat and has bred both flat and jumps winners.

Celtic Flames will be prepared for a bumper this season although his long term aim will be over fences. He should be best on good ground as he has a low action so should be out early in the autumn.
