Colour Bay
Sex Gelding
Sire Craigsteel
Dam Mooreshill Lady
Owner Wilde Duff Stewart Dawson

Spoils Of War is a very attractive son of Craigsteel, who was a fast finishing second in his fourth Irish point to point. He is out of a half sister to the useful bumper, hurdle and chase winner Boneyarrow and has decent stayers Simon Legree and Dakyns Boy. He is a progressive young horse who was highly recomended to me and who was bought at the Brightwells November Sale 2014.

 

Spoils Of War was second on his debut for us in a bumper, the winner and him pulling twenty lengths away from the rest of the field. He followed up with two more seconds in novice hurdles, both times finishing clear of the third and looking as if a longer trip would suit. He then ran poorly at Kelso but returned with a serious over reach. He was operated on and will have plenty of time to recover, we re hopeful that he can make it back to the track as he has already shown talent and will be even better over fences.
