Ocovango, a top class 3YO by leading National Hunt influence Monsun

Unbeaten at 2 years
Winner of the Gr.2 Prix Greffulhe at 3 years and third in the Gr.1 Grand Prix de Paris

“Strong, good-bodied colt: very smart performer in 2013, winning listed race and Prix Greffulhe, both at Saint-Cloud: looked unlucky not to finish closer when 2 lengths fifth to Ruler Of The World in Derby at Epsom next time” Timeform

“We think Ocovango has a lot in common with Flemensfirth, he’s a lovely big horse, a great colour and like Flemensfirth he was unbeaten at two, a Group winner over 10 furlongs and being by Monsun he’s an outcross for all the Sadler’s Wells-line mares.”
The Beeches Stud manager Robert McCarthy

“He’s got the ability, balance, the attitude, the breeding. He’s a serious horse”
25-time Champion trainer Andre Fabre
