The Racegoers Club are delighted to have a fantastic ownership opportunity with Malton based trainer Ruth Jefferson and a share in two exciting horses that provides year round enjoyment for just £475.
Running until the 30 June 2018 – this ownership group includes the popular nine-year-old mare Chilly Miss who is back in training for the Racegoers Club as well as a beautifully bred five-year-old mare called Sammamish.
Sammamish - Five-year-old mare
By leading jumps sire Oscar and out of Issaquah, Sammamish is one of nicest bred National Hunt horse the Racegoers Club have ever had.
Oscar, a French Derby runner-up, was responsible for some of the top jumps stars in recent memory including Gold Cup winner Lord Windermere, RSA Chase hero O’Faolains Boy and Champion Chase winner Big Zeb.
He also sired Champion Hurdle winner Rock On Ruby as well as top class hurdlers Peddlers Cross, At Fishers Cross and Oscar Whisky.
He retired from stud in 2015 and so this filly will be one of the last Oscar offspring to go into training. His most recent progeny include this year’s Irish Grand National winner Our Duke and Grade One winning novice hurdler Finian’s Oscar so there are high hopes that she can prove just as good.
Issaquah was also trained by Malcolm Jefferson and ran in the 2009 Mares Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival as well as finishing second at the Aintree Festival in 2009 and 2010 before running a career best third in the 2010 Swinton Hurdle to earn a rating of 145.
She has run twice so far to date in two bumpers and shaped both times as if a longer trip will show her to best effect. We are looking forward to running her over hurdles in the near future.
Ruth Jefferson recently took the reins at Newstead Cottage Stable after the very sad passing of her father Malcolm. With multiple Cheltenham Festival winners and with a winner at the 2017 Aintree Festival, Malcolm Jefferson trained for us since 2013 and the stable have been at the top of the game during this time. In the yard at the moment they have 2017 Arkle runner up Cloudy Dream as well as 2017 Aintree Festival Grade One runner up Mount Mews, 2015 Aintree winner Cyrus Darius and unbeaten chaser Waiting Patiently.
Ruth has a wealth of experience in training having grown up on the yard and learnt from one of the very best in Malcolm. We look forward to supporting her for many years to come.
A legend for the Racegoers Club, Chilly Miss is back having had a break with injury in June 2016. She loves the good ground available in the summer and has seemingly returned as good as ever, finishing an excellent second at Southwell in November 2017. During her career for the Racegoers Club she has won three National Hunt races and finished in the top three a further nine times, making her placed or win record in National Hunt races 11 out of 17. She also ran on the Flat for us and there should be plenty of opportunities for her through the spring and summer in 2018.
As well as the chance to see Chilly Miss and Sammamish on the racecourse, you will get the chance to visit Ruth's yard for behind the scene’s tours and exclusive insight from Ruth and the team.
