SWEET CARALINE

Caraline 25 February 2011 Martaline-Vie Ta Vie Owner-Les Horvath


Yesterday we were able to bring you a wonderful picture of Caraline's first foal a colt by the sire Telescope taken at the stud at one day old. Telescope was a Group 1 performer over middle distances for Sir Michael Stoute, he is a son of Galileo and was rated 123 at his peak, in his first year with runners last season he only had a handful of representatives on the track. Caraline arrived in Middleham in the winter of 2014 from France where she had run nine times for her trainer D. Windriff, the last of those runs was as a four year old over fences at Cagnes-Sur-Mer where she won on debut.

Her initial runs for us were not very inspiring, she was kept to hurdles and was running on good ground which was not her preference. She had the Summer off, and returned with a much reduced mark of 80 to make her British debut over fences at Newcastle, her Racing Post comment after the race was,'soon clear on bridle,easily.' She went on to complete a four timer in the space of 61 days, three chases and a hurdle, her new mark was 121, an improvement of 41 pounds in less than nine weeks.

There are very few jump horses, if any who escape some sought of injury during their careers, and Caraline has had two eight month stints away from the track, but returned on both occasions to win again. One of her most memorable was on Boxing Day 2017 when winning by nine lengths, and then a career high win off 124 at Kelso the following April, in her much preferred Heavy ground. Her last racecourse hurrah was back at Wetherby just over a year ago when winning her 8th and final race before retiring and going to stud.
