Nikki Steel was bought in May 2016 by Foxtrot Racing for £26,000. He will go into training with Cheltenham Festival and Grand National winning trainer Dr Richard Newland.
Shares are available now but are selling quickly.
Nikki Steel won a Point to Point in Ireland before running in two Irish maiden hurdles. He was placed on his first run and on his most recent run he finished second of thirteen beaten by a Willie Mullins horse, Penhill, who is rated 100 on the flat and had been purchased by Willie Mullins for £250,000.
He is a six year old who is still eligible for maiden races and has run and been placed on heavy to good ground. He was previously trained, ridden and owned by Paul Power in Ireland. Paul has never trained a winner under rules and has a strike rate of 4% in Point to Points. We would hope that Richard can get plenty of improvement out of this good looking gelding.
He has been bought with the 2016/17 national hunt season in mind. However, his most recent run was on 4th May and Richard would like to win a maiden hurdle with him before his summer break. He is fit and well, has not had a long season, and Richard has suggested we aim to win a maiden hurdle now, learn a little more about him and then plan our winter campaign.
