Sir Busker (IRE)
2016 bay gelding by Sir Prancealot (Ire) ex Street Kitty (Ire) (Tiger Hill (Ire))
Group 2 winner Sir Busker, is a powerful seven-year-old gelded son of Sir Prancealot, trained by William Knight. He has now won six races, over £560,000 in prize money and boasts a top rating of 116.
Last season was a memorable one, starting with some excellent runs in Dubai including in the Dubai Turf (Group 1) and Jebel Hetta (Group 1), before returning to the UK. After taking his Partners for some big days out in the early summer, Sir Busker was stepped up to 1 mile 2 furlongs and won the Sky Bet York Stakes (Group 2) under Ben Curtis, before putting up an outstanding performance in the prestigious Juddmonte International (Group 1) to finish third behind Baaeed. This horse has given us so many fantastic days over the past few years, running third in the Queen Anne Stakes (Group 1) at Royal Ascot, second in the Sovereign Stakes (Group 3), second in the Celebration Mile (Group 2) at Goodwood, fourth in the QE11 (Group 1), second in the Bunbury Cup and winning the Silver Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot – quite the roll of honour!
He will begin his seven-year-old season with a prep run in England before heading to Dubai once more – hopefully he can pick up lots of dirham’s at Meydan again!
Sir Busker was Luke and Sam’s pick of the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale back in 2017 and once they had seen him they knew they had to buy him; Luke has never been so excited as he was when the hammer fell for this one!
Purchased for €25,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale 2017.
William Knight is a Group winning trainer who is based in Newmarket at the state-of-art yard at Rathmoy Stables. He trains our KVT Flag bearer Sir Busker, Dual Identity, Bunker Bay, Chartwell House and a two-year-old colt by Highland Reel. 2022 was by far William's best in terms of prizemoney, thanks in part to Sir Busker - a high standard set for 2023!
