POCO CONTANTE

Poco

2017 Filly by Fast Company (IRE)

ex Littlemoor Lass GB

 

We have named her Poco Contante, its a line from Mozart’s ‘ The Marriage of Figaro’ and linked to the mother, it actually means “Little Money”….hopefully she brings us plenty to the club!

 

“Poco” known to the stable staff is quickly getting a reputation, due to her showing plenty speed even in the early days around the ring at David Thompsons, the potential with her is huge, everyone can feel it. She has taken to her education well and we are excited with her at this early stage. She has a lovely temperament too. The plan is to see how she takes her early work, with a view to maidens in the north in the Spring.

 

The breeding suggests she will get a range of potential distances, from 7f up to 11f so let’s wait and see how she goes in the coming weeks and months. Her sire is Fast Company who sired the beautiful filly Jet Setting to win the 2016 Group 1 Irish 1000guineas pocketing a cool 170,000 Euros. Poco’s high action suggests she might thrive on softer ground, lets hope so as Jet Setting won the Irish 1000guineas on very soft ground.
