Yearling Bay Gelding

  • Sire: Helmet (AUS)
  • Dam: Pride of Ardrossan (AUS)
  • Foal Date: October 9, 2017 (AUS)
  • Trainer: Allison Sheehan

A correct, good-sized yearling with clean x-rays. Bred by Allison herself, he is well priced and a great opportunity to have some fun.

“I love seeing a young horse develop and mature into an athlete and the thrill their owners get of seeing it come to fruition on the racetrack. I’ll never get tired of training winners!” – Allison Sheehan

‘Harvey’, as this gelding is affectionately known, is a good boned horse, very correct and already of good size (15.2hh as an early yearling).

THE SIRE

HELMET is the best two-year-old by the world’s best sire of two-year-olds, EXCEED AND EXCEL. At three, he won the G1 Caulfield Guineas in record time, earning a 127 Timeform rating. That’s higher than Exceed And Excel and Danehill.

His 206 winners are led by THUNDER SNOW, a winner of three Group 1 races including the Dubai World Cup. His local progeny are led by Group 3 winners ARCHIVES and LIMESTONE.

THE DAM

PRIDE OF ARDROSSAN is by the global sire DESERT SUN (sire of SUNLINE). She won three races from just seven starts.

As a broodmare, she has produced the city-winners ANDRASSY (four metro wins plus a fourth placing in G3 Cockram stakes at Caulfield) & ALONZAH. Another of her produce is a dual winner.

Pride of Ardrossan herself is a daughter of multiple city-winning and Group 1 placed ROYAL SENCHEREC (2nd G1 Qld Oaks).
