Pioneer Racing are delighted to have secured General Maximus a racey and athletic 4yo Gelding by Maxios out of the Dansili mare Enterprising who herself is a full sister to the two Black type winners Runnymede & Stipulate. General Maximus has been going through a regime where he has been brought on with options of running in a Irish point-to-point or in a Bumper during the Winter season. However due to the insurance crisis that the Irish P2P scene is facing the horse has come onto the market early.
General Maximus was brought to the attention of Gordon, Mouse & ourselves when winning a schooling hurdle race and being by a sire that is rated very highly and one which Cullentra House Stables have had good success with. Before we finalised the purchase of General Maximus we were keen to allow Gordon’s team to have a first hand assessment of the horse with a racecourse gallop along with some of Gordon’s horses which he carried out with flying colours on testing ground. The jockey feedback was he’s a horse that appreciates testing ground and that he will run well in a Irish Bumper with suitable conditions. Gordon has told us he expects this horse to keep improving as he continues to mature into his frame. He has been schooled very well so will have no issues once also once sent over a obstacle.
