Colour Chesnut
Sex Gelding
Sire Kapgarde
Dam La Ville Aux Dames
Owner Mr Peter J. S. Russell

Purchased from Arqana in the summer 2018, Fontcombeau is by the French stallion Kapgarde and so shares his sire with such luminaries as Clan des Obeaux and A Plus Tard. His dam was placed over hurdles in France and is a half-sister to three winners, including a mare who was twice successful at Grade 2 level. A strong gelding and the sort to mature into a big chasing type, he is well balanced and a lovely mover, really covering the ground when he trots, reminding me of our former classy performer Tap Night.
