Laziest bred horse ever?
I was perusing the 2 year old entries and came across Sir Erec, an apparently well thought of colt from Ballydoyle with an entry in the National Stakes. Decided to have a look and spotted he is by Camelot (by Montjeu who’s of course by Sadlers Wells) and out of a Galileo mare (Galileo of course by Sadlers Wells).
Come on?! Yes it happens but isn’t this pretty immediate in the pool? And for such a global breeding power as Coolmore….
I mean fair play, he could turn out to be a machine with five legs

Better late than never for this lad Bozlike. He is obviously late on the scene, but he certainly showed a good attitude.
Do you have any thoughts on that run?October 13, 2018 at 14:54 #1377239
That was another good run there Bozlike. I like this horse, he has won well back to back there.October 15, 2018 at 13:33 #1377431
Still in The Long Distance, I’ve chanced him 50’s each way.October 22, 2018 at 21:52 #1378431
VtC, I was out of the country, and his entry completely passed me by. Well done on that price.
I didn’t fancy him on the day to be honest, but it has been nice to see him progressing eventually, and it was great to see him in the flesh on Saturday.December 20, 2018 at 13:47 #1389768
He’s been bought by JP, and now with Joseph O’Brien.
He’s entered up for a Maiden Hurdle over Christmas, and hoping he takes to it.
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on him, and no doubt at some point I’ll start going on about The NH Chase for him in a couple of years time.December 20, 2018 at 16:06 #1389787

Pat Keating gave this as his dark horse to follow from the AOB yard before the flat started this year. One plonker i know backed him to win the DerbyDecember 31, 2018 at 19:26 #1390927
It wasn’t a top drawer debut VtC, but at least he won. I will follow you in for The Triumph Hurdle as I would kick myself if I missed out on him.
Where next for him do you think?December 31, 2018 at 23:50 #1390940
He’s worth a pop Kris, definitely.
As for next target, I can only guess Dublin Festival. I’m not big on Juvenile Hurdles usually, so not even sure of the proper trials.
A path similar to Ivanovich Gorbatov might be a possible?January 31, 2019 at 23:37 #1394480
It looks a hot race to my untrained eye at the weekend, but I would be delighted if he won.February 1, 2019 at 21:14 #1394670
Kris, I’m as untrained as yourself with the juveniles, but it does look a strong race. I really like Tiger Tap Tap, but hopefully Sir Erec will step up.February 3, 2019 at 22:24 #1395120
Kris, you happy with that today?
Been here before (well maybe not with The Triumph) but I found that, other than a couple of rusty jumps, to be a very impressive display.February 5, 2019 at 20:37 #1395245
I was happy with that VtC, I was a little worried beforehand, but that was very encouraging.
I only bet in very small amounts, but I’m hopeful of a 10-1 Antepost winner for Cheltenham, I haven’t had many over the years.February 6, 2019 at 00:57 #1395255
Good luck, not getting carried away, but that was encouraging on Sunday.March 15, 2019 at 13:55 #1402268
