Golden Maverick

Jumps Hurdles 4yo Bay Gelding 16hh
  • Sire: Zarak Dam: Waritta

Golden Maverick landed a first win over hurdles on March 20 at Haydock, bolting up in a juvenile hurdle under Gavin Sheehan and followed up in the £30k Juvenile Hurdle Final at Musselburgh on April 5. He still has plenty of room for improvement having had just three starts over obstacles and looks a brilliant prospect for hurdles with a Timeform rating of 91 and already proven over a mile and a half on the Flat. He is a five-time winner from 15 starts on the Flat, four on turf and one on the all-weather and has proven a liking for soft ground, which is an important attribute to send a horse jumping. Golden Maverick was actually bought back at Tattersalls sales for 105,000 guineas by his owner, with us being the underbidder at 100,000 guineas. However, we were so keen to secure him that we immediately approached the trainer to give them a second chance to accept our bid of 100,000 guineas and we were delighted when they accepted. His sire Zarak has made an exceptional start over Jumps already with the very high class Zarak The Brave and Bo Zenith. The share price is all inclusive with no monthly costs and an optional renewal payment.

The plan

Golden Maverick landed back-to-back successes when winning the £30,000 Grey Bomber Juvenile Hurdle Final at Musselburgh in April following his first success over hurdles at Haydock. In the process, he confirmed himself as a highly promising hurdle prospect and is now a seven-time winner under both Flat and Jumps. He should go on improving and may take in a run at Sandown on the final day of the Jumps season, which is really exciting!

  • Highly rated prospect from the Flat, Timeform rated 91
  • Entered his jumping career with proven soundness, having won five times and finished second three times in 2023
  • Came highly recommended by renowned bloodstock agent, Tom Malone, who described him as a 'lovely, hardy type, very sound with all the strength to make a proper jumper'
