Tara’s Light is an attractive National Hunt mare in training with Gary Moore, based in West Sussex. Gary knows the family extremely well, winning with both of her siblings, and hopefully Tara’s Light can follow in their footsteps.
This 6-year old is very well bred by dual Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup winner Kayf Tara who has produced many eye-catching National Hunt progeny. These include Grade 1 King George winner Thistlecrack, Grade 1 Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Special Tiara and Grade 1 Arkle and Grade 1 Tingle Creek winner Edwardstone to name but a few!
There is plenty of stamina running through Tara’s Light’s veins on her Dam side too with the Dam, Sudden Light, being frequently placed over 2m5f-3m in bumpers and over hurdles. The full brothers to our filly are both in training with Gary and are both winners. Robin’s Dream was placed twice before winning over hurdles and Jerrash was placed in a bumper before winning twice over hurdles on soft ground and finishing 3rd in a Listed hurdle race at Huntingdon.
Kayf Tara’s offspring are known for taking a little time to come into themselves and Tara’s Light has been given plenty of time and gently brought along which we love. She is very much a long-term exciting prospect, perfect for avid NH fans!
Tara’s Light made her racecourse debut in a bumper at Fontwell Park in late January. She absolutely loved being up with the early pace and travelled strongly before getting tired in the closing stages. Unfortunately things didn’t quite go to plan for her subsequent run but she has since enjoyed a long holiday to strengthen and fill into her large frame. She was due to make her hurdling debut this winter but unfortunately has suffered a setback that will require a little time.
