Kissoffire bought into by Team Valor
KISSOFFIRE, a 2 year old colt by Elusive Quality out of More than Ready mare Readyandaway looks set to continue his career abroad after being partly purchase by American powerhouses Team Valor International.
Originally trained by Marco Botti for Giuliano Manfredini, Kissoffire's only racecourse performance came at Kempton on the 24th of August in a 1 mile maiden. He was extremely sluggish out of the gates, ultimately losing 5 lengths on the field and giving himself a mountain to climb. His inexperience was also evident as he appeared slightly keen and unsettled, however the last two furlongs saw him power down the outside when the penny dropped and he looks a horse full of potential for the future.
This has been recognized by American-based Team Valor International who have now purchased a stake in the horse alongside his original owner Giuliano Manfredini. Team Valor have recently enjoyed success at the very highest level with Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom and more recently Marco Botti's globetrotting filly Euro Charline.
We wish his connections the best of luck with him moving forward.
