The dam of this 2 year old was a winner herself at 2 before running at a high standard as a 3 year old. She placed 4th in a Group 3 and achieved a Racing Post Rating high of 99. Elsewhere in the family is Prix du Jockey Club winner Blue Canari and multiple Group placed performer Blue Ksar.
His sire Le Havre is also a Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) winner and the sire of multiple Group winners already.
Already in training with Richard, he is stepping up both his feed and his workload though we do not expect him to be a particularly early 2 year old.
4 runs this season have resulted with a 6263 to his name. Richard feels he is more than capable of picking up a couple of races and he will now be given a break to strengthen up.
Tough Remedy - Keith Dalgleish
2015 Gelding - Tough As Nails x Remediate
His dam Group 3 placed in the US and producer of black type performers from the family of California Derby winner Always A Cinch.
His sires first crop of 2 year olds to run in 2017, Tough As Nails a very precocious 2yo from a speedy family himself by Dark Angel.
Tough Remedy made a highly encouraging debut finishing 2nd beaten a neck. Having been unlucky in running.
Things didn't go as planned at Hamilton where gaps didn't appear and he finished a close up 3rd being beaten a neck. He will now be given a couple of weeks before we find him a 6f race somewhere.
Tough Remedy's run at Carlisle some could say was a backward step however he is still green and still learning, he hit what seems to be his customary flat spot mid race before staying on at the finish only being beaten around 2 lengths in 5th. He now has a mark of 73 and holds entries this week.
Tough Remedy ran another solid race in defeat at Ayr (24/7) he was slowly away but soon found his stride and picked up when push came to shove he just couldn't quite catch the winner whom looks easily an 80+ horse. He has now been gelded just to help his concentration and will be back after Christmas.
Tough Remedy made a winning return to the track at Newcastle on (12/1/18) he looked a picture in the paddock. He settled just in behind the leaders and travelled nicely before picking up in the final furlong and winning by 11/4 lengths.
Unwritten - Karl Burke
2015 Colt - Poets Voice x Passata
This Colt is a half brother to 3 black type winners including a champion German 2 year old. Passata herself was unraced.
His sire was a high class winner at 2 over 7f who progressed at 3 to be a top miler including winning the Queen Elizabeth II beating Rip Van Winkle. Sire of G3 Oh So Sharp winner Poet's Vanity and leading second season sire.
He's a big framed horse as you can see in the 2nd picture, with plenty of scope. Although he will need a little time he has a good attitude and takes his work well.
Unwritten has continued to work well and he will make his racecourse debut sometime around the end of August.
Unwritten made a pleasing debut at Hamilton (25/8/17) finishing 4th in a race where the form has worked out well.
Unwritten won (28/8/17) by 9 Lengths at Pontefract readily going clear on the rain softened ground. The second has won since and he will be aimed at the Silver Tankard Listed race 23/10/17 back at Pontefract.
Unwritten finished a pleasing 5th in the Silver Tankard, he probably needs a step up in trip now. We will geld him and put him away for the winter with races like the Melrose at York possible targets for him next season. Unwritten has been given a mark of 91.
