Description of horse

This gorgeous filly is a sister to the incredible “Put The Kettle On“, the only mare to have won 2 grade 1 chases against geldings. She looks to have everything required to be a top class horse for her owners and will hopefully provide them with lots of exciting days at the races.

She has already impressed her trainer Jonjo O’niell in her work at home and we can’t wait to get her started and see what she can do on the track. Hopefully she will get close to being as good as her incredible sister.

Polly as she is currently known (her stable name as her sister is put the kettle on – “Polly, Put the Kettle on“), is a beautiful filly who glides across the ground. TopSpeed were thrilled to buy such a high class filly with one of the best pedigree’s there is, indeed her half sister has just been retired and sold for £380,000 as a broodmare.

Quote from Will & Tom “The main attraction to her at the sales was the way she covered the ground which when combined with her pedigree means she has everything we look for in a TopSpeed horse and she certainly has lots of potential we are sure our members are going to enjoy.”
