CIARABELLA.

CIARABELLA. 12 April 2013. Gold Well-Fancy Fashion. Owner-M H O G.


Ciarabella is a lightly raced seven year old mare by the unraced brother to Montjeu, Gold Well, who is doing well as a Sire of National Hunt horses. Her Dam was the winner of an Irish point to point in 2009, and in seven attempts under rules, registered a best official rating of 90.

Ciarabella started her racing career in Ayrshire, Scotland, in the care of R Mike Smith.She made her debut as a four year old in November 2017 at Ayr, in a bumper, beating one home in heavy ground.She was back at Ayr again in January, and February 2018, racing in two further bumpers, without getting competitive, both races were once again on heavy ground.Her final start for the Smith yard was once again at Ayr in November, after her Summer break, this time it was a debut over hurdles, but she finished last of the seven, on good ground.

Ciarabella would next appear in February 2019, having changed yards, moving to Ian Duncan, who also trains in Ayrshire.Stepping up to two and a half miles in novice hurdle company, back at Ayr, she failed once again to make any show.She returned to Ayr for the sixth time in as many races, when finishing down the field again, but receiving her first handicap mark of 86.She made her handicap debut at Newcastle in April under Billy Garritty, over three miles, but came home 34 lengths behind the winner in eighth place.Her final start to date was her debut over fences at Ayr, in May 2019, when after not always jumping fluently, she trailed home last of the four runners.

Ciarabella made her debut for us at Cartmel yesterday,and ran a race full of promise, staying on in to third place at 40/1.From viewing her in the paddock beforehand, it looked as if the race would definitely bring her on.
