Burke And Wills
Mr R Pegum & Partner
This gelding was purchased from the Arqana Breeze Up Sale in May 2019 by SackvilleDonald for 60,000 Euros. Footstepsinthesand was an unbeaten 2YO, Classic-winning miler & proven Gr.1 sire by Giant's Causeway - just like Shamardal. This gelding is also from the family of Slade Power, successful stallion and hero of the G1 Darley July Cup and G1 Diamond Jubilee. Key Rose has already produced several winners, as well as being a multiple winner herself so this pedigree looks promising for this athletic looking horse. Burke And Wills has run twice in 2020, taking a big step forward from first to second start. He finished 3rd at Windsor most recently beating ten other horses in the process. We hope he continues on this upward curve and enjoys a successful campaign.
