Thank you,wasnt sure if he had raced as I couldn't find any data on him.

He was offered for sale at Doncaster auctions in October 2008, and shown as unraced in the sale catalogue. There was no bid for him< which suggests he must have had some pretty obvious physical issues.

Thank you, I wonder if you know at all what he originally cost ?

I do - he was bought for 50,000 gns at the Newmarket October Yearling sales in 2006, knocked down to John Warren Bloodstock.

All in all an expensive flop for the breeders as well as the eventual owner. They'd paid 230,000 gns to buy the dam, Showering, and Barathea cost 25,000 euros as a stud fee.

Overall the dam produced five foals that made it to the racecourse and between them they amassed a Goodwood maiden and a Redcar seller. Probably not what they stud had in mind when the bought her.
