We are pleased to be offering shares in this homebred gelding out of Banri Maeve (Dec) who was by Magic Albert and the winner of eight races between 1200-1600m. She is the dam of five foals to race for four winners. Reward For Effort is the sire of multiple listed and group three winners.

Matthews comments– “He is a lovely big strong gelding with correct conformation. I expect he will race as a late two year old and train on to hit his straps as a three year old. An affordable way to get into racing and enjoy cheering home your own horse this time next year”.

This gelding is in work and progressing well towards his first jump out.
