2016 bay filly by Gentlewave (Ire) ex Himayna (GB) (Generous (Ire))
BUMPERS TO JUMPERS are delighted to have secured GENTLE KATE, a lovely bred, 4-year-old filly by GENTLEWAVE.
BUMPERS TO JUMPERS are excited to have secured the services of Grade 1 winning trainer KAYLEY WOOLLACOTT who will train GENTLE KATE from her stables near Crewkerne, Somerset.
The filly was bred by Bob Russell, who owns and runs BLYTH PARK STUD based in Appleby Magna, Leicestershire.
She has been in pre training with Peter Hammersley at his yard also in Appleby Magna and her pre-training has been completed, she is due in Kayley’s Yard Saturday 6th June 2020 to commence full training.
Paul Gibson from Bumpers to Jumpers says “ Gentle Kate has great size and scope and in her faster work is showing a pronounced knee action indicating she will be a proper winter horse, we think she about 16.1h now which is ideal for a National Hunt Horse and typical of Gentlewave. We think she will have the power and pace to be effective from 2m to 3m as she gets older, we are incredibly excited by her”
Her sire GENTLEWAVE was a high-class performer on the track. Only racing as a 3-year-old he was the winner 4 of his 6 starts including the Group 2 Prix Noailles and the Group 1 Italian Derby. His final outing was a fine second in the Irish Derby to the outstanding 6-time Group 1 winner DYLAN THOMAS.
The dam HIMAYNA, although a maiden, was placed in all 15 times from her 33 starts. Her siblings include the 10-time winning HIRAPOUR and 11-time winner HISAR. The pedigree is littered with top class individuals including her 3rd dam HIGHEST HOPES (2nd top rated 3yr old filly in England and France in 1970) and further down the page, RAINBOW CONNECTION (CAN) Champion 2yr old in Canada in 1980 and Champion 3yr old filly in Canada in 1981).
