JACK VALENTINE (IRE)
Scorpion ex Mangan Rose
Jack Valentineís sire, Scorpion, is highly respected. His progeny
include Might Bite, the Cheltenham Gold Cup runner up, and Donít Touch
It. He was bought after his racecourse debut, a bumper at Listowel,
where he finished second, a length behind the winner, Scaglietti, a
Willie Mullins trained horse who has gone on to win since.
Jack Valentine is a good moving horse and stands at 16.1hh. He comes
from the pointing yard of Sam Curling, the same yard of Summerville Boy
who won the Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham last year as a 6yo.
His half brother, Thatíll Do Me, who sadly died at the age of 6, won
twice over hurdles at Thurles and Punchestown.
This young horse is an exciting prospect.
