Sammy B is a half brother to This Thyne Jude and Sonny Thyne, out of the Dalkey Sound mare This Thyne. This Thyne won over hurdles, and being by the Scottish Grand National second plced mare Dalkey Sound, she should pass on plenty of stamina.
He is by leading sire Overbury, winner of the Queen Elizabeth Cup Grade 1, and the American Derby Grade 2. As a sire Overbury won the Whitbred Silver Salver and Horse and Hound Cup for being the leading British based sire of individual chase winners ain 2009 and 2010.
Sammy B had a difficult start to life when his dam died from gras sickness when he was three weeks old. Geoff Brown and Angie Welsh spent many days fostering him onto a Clydesdale mare called Rosie. Once fostered Sammy never looked back and eems to have Rosie's laid back temprement. Like the rest of his family sammy has been slow to mature and he will be prepared for a bumper in 2015 before schooling over hurdles and fences.
