George - Naughty But Nice and Ours for Life!
‘Naughty but nice and ours for life’ is a project that will take you all the way through the life of ‘Naughty George’. George is a two-year old Chestnut thoroughbred by Top Trip out of the winning mare, Bassinet by Stravinsky.
This is a life time project for ‘George’ to make sure he never wants for anything – in or out of Racing. It is an opportunity to see George develop and grow through the stages of Breaking in, Pre Training, Racing and finally, Retirement.
Shares start from as little as £225.00 for a 1% share on an annual basis. You can follow him step by step and will always be welcome to visit him and the other horses at Girsonfield.
Why Invest in George?
George’s dam, Bassinet, is a winner and the dam of seven foals – including four winners to date. George has some illustrious relatives (in his second dam ‘Cousins’) including Put The Kettle On, a mare who won 2021 Cheltenham Champion Chase. Put The Kettle On is out of Bassinet’s half sister and has almost won 500K.
Stormy Pouss is another relation winning over 150k on the Flat in France including Listed races over 1.2m and still only four years old
So Flat or National Hunt? There are equal arguments on both codes but ultimately it will be up to the Trainer and George to decide depending on his strengths and maturity.
Your contribution –anywhere between 1 – 40% – will be used to further his career, pay for training, vets and jockey fees etc. We will look at the bank account on an annual basis and if we have a surplus of prize money it will be divided out pro rata – with a contingency kept to one side for George’s retirement. This was George will have his very own bank account and syndicate which will be transparent at all times.
At the end of his career if he is able to be retrained we will find him a loan home where he can be happy for the rest of his days – we will still own him. If he sustains an injury that prevents continuing to be ridden then he will become one of the Girsonfield ‘Field Ornaments’ such as Super Collider and Definite Appeal – old friends that we cannot part with and who see out their days here at Girsonfield.
