MINELLA (IRE), 16.2 h.h. (approx): placed 4 times in point-to-points at 5 and 6 years, 2010. This horse was bought at the Cheltenham sale in May 2010. Placed in 4 of his 6 pointto-points in Ireland. Showed a lot of promise in 2 bumpers in July. Slightly disappointing over fences but having been scoped after his last run, he was found to have severe tonsilitis and a bacterial infection. Was treated and turned away. Present owner selling due to financial circumstances. This a very genuine horse, a maiden under all codes and could make a high class pointer for the forthcoming season.
