HORSES IN TRAINING
Meet the horses currently in training with David Dennis Racing.
Breeding: by Beat Holow out of Memorys of Madness
Owner: James Dunsby & Steve Merry
Merry Melody is an exciting recruit to our team who was purchased at the Goffs UK Spring May Sale at Doncaster. She is a two-time winner in Irish Point to Points this year, which proves she clearly has ability. She is a relative to Merry Mistress a mare we previously trained, who was a 4 time winner. A six year old daughter of the late Beat Hollow who clearly jumps and stays well which will be a great attribute for mares' hurdles and chases where there are plenty of opportunities in the fixture list with good prize money on offer. She has plenty of size and scope and we look forward to seeing how she fares on the racecourse this autumn.
Breeding: by Mount Nelson out of Myblueeyedgirl
Owner: The Dobbin Club
Nelson's Five was purchased at the Goffs Land Rover Sales in Ireland in June 2022 as an unbroken store horse. He is a tall, athletic horse who has a very striking walk and trot. His sire, Mount Nelson, was twice a Group 1 winner for the Coolmore team and is proving to be a good sire of jumpers. His dam was a mares' bumper winner who is by Milan and is proving to be an excellent broodmare sire. He is showing plenty of promise in training so far and has a good attitude for jumping where he will hopefully have a bright future. His owners The Dobbin Club previously owned Indy Five, therefore Nelson's Five has rather large shoes to fill!
Breeding: by Jack Hobbs out of London Bells
Owner: Mr Graham Saville
Simply Belle is a 3yo filly by Jack Hobbs who was purchased at the Goffs UK August 2022 sale, at Doncaster, as an unbroken 2yo. Her sire, Jack Hobbs, is an exciting new National Hunt Stallion who won the Irish Derby by an impressive 5 lengths, in 2015 for John Gosden, who now stands at Overbury Stud. She has an athletic step to her and showed a good temperament which David and her owner, Graham Saville, liked on the day of the sale. She was broken in and ridden away before being given the winter to mature. She has shown plenty of promise in training during the spring and is being aimed for Juvenile Bumpers and National Hunt Juvenile Hurdles this season. She is an exciting long-term prospect for her owner.
