Shares available for £28
Farouk De Cheneau is a good looking five-year-old gelding. He has had just one run in Owners Group colours, having won over hurdles in France for his previous connections. Despite not running as well as expected at Kempton in March, Farouk De Cheneau travelled and jumped well for a long way before tiring and showing signs of a breathing issue. Farouk De Cheneau subsequently underwent a breathing operation but shortly afterwards, was found to have suffered a tendon injury. His rehabilitation has gone well so far, but he is not expected to return to the track until the summer of 2021, all being well.
Farouk De Cheneau is by Day Flight, who has produced a number of good Jumps horses, including multiple graded-winner, A Toi Phil. His dam (Kardamone) has produced multiple winners over Jumps and is a daughter of Network, who is a highly influential broodmare sire and has produced the likes of Sprinter Sacre, Saint Are and recent Galway Plate winner, Borice.
Farouk De Cheneau is trained by the current champion Jumps trainer, Nicky Henderson, from his historic Seven Barrows yard in Lambourn, Berkshire. Nicky's consistency as one of the top Jumps trainers of the last forty years is remarkable, and he has enjoyed tremendous success with the likes of See You Then, Long Run, Sprinter Sacre, Bobs Worth, Binocular and Altior. Nicky also trained Owners Group's Pentland Hills to win the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival.
