“Idaho was a very solid, consistent racehorse – sound, clear-winded with a good mind. I think he would have been an impressive winner of the St Leger but for almost getting brought down in the straight and he showed that when winning the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.” Aidan O'Brien
His First Foals Are Impressing Breeders!
“probably the best foal we’ve ever had.” John Butler on his colt ex Happy Flight
“I’m delighted with my Idaho colt out of Carabora [a full-sister to Racing Post Chase, Charlie Hall Chase and Aintree Bowl Chase winner Nacarat]. He has size, scope and presence and I have three mares back in foal to Idaho already on the strength of him.” Pat Fennessy of Ballinaroone Stud
