2017 Chesnut filly by Footstepsinthesand (GB) ex Portico (GB) (Pivotal (GB))
Owner KVT VII
Purchased for €60,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale 2018
Castleinthesand is by the 2,000 Guineas winner and prolific Coolmore sire Footstepsinthesand, a son of the ‘Iron Horse’ Giant’s Causeway. She is a half-sister to our highly exciting three-year-old Flashcard and we bought her at the same sale as Flashcard. This means that she is eligible for the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Race, a race in which Flashcard was second last season.
Her dam, Portico, an unraced daughter of the mighty sire/broodmare sire Pivotal is a half-sister to the high class Mucho Applause, a horse Andrew also trained before he was sold to Hong Kong. This is the great Cheveley Park family of Dimension and Spacious.
Andrew has enjoyed Group 1 success in England, Dubai, Hong Kong, Canada and Australia and trained over 1240 domestic winners. With a record haul of winners and prizemoney in 2019 the future looks bright at Park House Stables.
