Gelding by Rip Van Winkle out of unraced Green Desert mare Amallna, a half brother to dual winning filly Lady Perpignon. He is a very exciting prospect and has thrived, a yearling of immense size who we have high hopes for.

Boreas Duke made his debut over hurdles at Hexham in June 2019 where he finished third.

We are able to offer several 5% shares in this impressive young horse. Please contact Andy Courtine for more details.
