Syndicate term ends:


He was sired by Big Bad Bob, who drew the attention of astute breeders when his first crops turned out a high ratio of winners to runners, including the Group 3 winners Berg Bahn (Ire) and Bible Belt (Ire), and listed winner Bob Le Beau (Ire), as well as Brendan Brackan, who has proven to be an excellent servant (life time earnings £369,593) for Ger Lyons over the last 7 years, indicating the soundness of his stock. Bob Pebble’s dam is Pebble in a Pool.

Since moving to Paul Nicholls’ yard, Bob Pebble has shown a natural and impressive jumping ability, as well as a bit of an attitude!

Bob Pebble ran his first race at Ballinrobe in September 2019, coming in second behind a more experienced horse, and ahead of the odds on favourite. What that race suggested was that he’s got a really good gallop in him, a really decent stride and most of all, he tried his heart out! In his second race, in July 2020, Bob lead the field at Newton Abbot, but couldn’t quite stay the distance and ended up placing a very respectable third.

The plan for Bob Pebble is to turn him into a lovely novice hurdler for next season.

The syndicate term finishes 30.04.2021 and at the end of the term owners will be given priority to renew their ownership for another term should they choose. Let’s hope Bob makes it a no-brainer!
