The family

Injury incurred while racing restricted Charmaine Wood's jumping career to just the two seasons, but during that time under the care of Alan King, she won a bumper, and two hurdle races. Stainsby Girl is her second foal, the first by Tobougg is in training with Ian Williams, there's also a 2015 colt by Kayf Tara and was covered by Mahler in 2016.
Charmaine Wood's dam Forest Pride has a lengthy list of winning sons and daughters over jumps to her credit. And being by excellent NH broodmare sire Be My Native, she certainly has the breeding for the job.
Forest Pride's winning family contain graded hurdler/chaser Our Ben and hurdler/chaser Scavenger (also Grade 3 placed), full siblings to Charmaine Wood in Double Pride and Pairtree, and racemares Countess Camilla and Native Princess.
And success hasn't stopped on the racecourse for Forest Pride by any means, as several of her daughters have proved to be successful broodmares too. Countess Camilla (dam of 2 winners), Pairtree (3 winners) and Dara's Pride (2 winners) have maintained the strong winning tradition in this excellent NH family.


About the sire

The German bred Shirocco (bay horse, 2001) was unraced as a 2yr old but, trained by Andreas Schultz at 3, he won the Group 1 German Derby. Transferred to the care of Andre Fabre at 4, he won the 2005 Breeders Cup Turf at Belmont Park. Campaigned for a final season at 5, he won 3 pattern events, including the Jockey Club Stakes & the Coronation Cup.
Retired in 2007 to Darley's Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket, Shirocco struck gold with his first crop siring multiple stakes winner Brown Panther. In his last 2 seasons with Darley, Shirocco was promoted as a dual purpose stallion, and in 2014 re-located to stand at Glenview Stud.
Having that increasingly influential NH sire, Monsun, on his top line, Shirocco is now very popular with breeders and regularly covers between 150 - 200 broodmares each year.
Of course, his NH success has been spearheaded by that famous chestnut mare Annie Power (Champion Hurdle winner 2016), while graded hurdles/chase winners such as Minella Rocco (Gold Cup runner up 2017), and Red Sherlock have kept his profile strong.
