Ultimate Getaway – launched 30th December 2019
For a stayer he has plenty of speed so we’ll probably start him off at two and a half miles and hopefully he’ll be winning over hurdles in 2020 before going chasing.
Ultimate Getaway is well bred by Getaway and is likely to improve with age. He is the first foal of an un-raced dam, Ultimate Echo, who is a half sister to 5 winners including Grade 2 winning chaser Hear The Echo. He was purchased as a store for €25,000 at the Derby Sale in June 2017.
He has a very similar profile to Mr Muldoon who has done so well for Foxtrot this year.
He has been running in Point to Points in Ireland for a trainer who does not have good facilities and will have struggled to get this five year old (turns six on 1st Janaury 2020) who stands 16.3hh fit.
He was runner up on his pointing debut in Ireland. The winner was sold for £95,000. He then ran disappointingly and was sold to an astute owner in England who gave him a breathing operation. He was beaten beaten 4 lengths despite being very badly hampered on his English pointing debut and Fergal and I have decided to buy him now before he wins a Point and his value increases beyond our budget. He has been purchased for £15,000.
He will be trained by Fergal O’Brien
Since then, Fergal has moved to a new purpose built training yard near to Cheltenham. He is enjoying another fantastic season with a 23% win strike rate (46 winners) so far this season and is being talked about as a future Champion Trainer.
Twenty 5% shares are available in Ultimate Getaway. The capital cost per share is £750 (Ultimate Getaway was bougt for £15,000) and then there is a contribution of ££1,350 towards training and racing costs until 31st October 2020.
At the end of the first season (30th October 2020) members will receive a financial statement and a dividend made up of prizemoney won and any subscriptions not spent.
We anticipate that the cost for future years (1st November 2020 to 30th October 2021) will be a maxmum of £1,350 per year.
This set up ensures members know their maximum cost for the season right from the start and can clearly see how their money has been spent at the end of the season. Anything not spent plus prizemoney is then returned to the shareholders.
