BALLYTARSNA COLONEL GUY (Truffle)
Truffle is an Irish Sport Horse. He is a 5 year old bay gelding, approx 16.1hh, owned by Bill, who purchased him at the Monart Sale in 2015.
Truffle is by Colonel Clover out of Burns Regular Gal who is by Loughehoe Guy. He is a half brother to Greenmount Flight who competed at three star level.
He was backed in the spring of 2016. He has some old fashioned Irish blood lines with plenty of TB blood in his pedigree. He has a good jump and is light on his feet with a beautiful head on him. He has been a handful to produce as he is extremely sensitive but worth preserving with as he has talent and blood to burn with plenty of engine.
Time will tell in terms of how he develops and I will certainly enjoy the process. I describe him as a present to myself for the next ten Christmases!
