Airlie Beach before being sold for £140,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland National Hunt November Sale

Tattersalls Ireland

Ain’t No Sunshine, a full brother to ill-fated Grade 1 winner Airlie Beach hurdler, will make his racetrack debut in Kelso’s bumper on Friday.

Trained by Keith Dalgleish and owned by Middleham Park Racing, Shantou’s son was picked up by Kevin Ross for £75,000 at the 2019 Goffs Land Rover sale before becoming part of the Straightline Bloodstock scatter at the Goffs UK December sale Last year. There he made £35,000 at Middleham Park.

The gelding is the seventh foal of mare Shernazar Screaming Witness, and is therefore a full or half-brother to five winners including Airlie Beach and Screaming Rose, both trained by Willie Mullins.

Airlie Beach was a top performer in both disciplines, with wins at the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle and the European Breeders Fund Lough Construction Ltd Mares Novice Hurdle among her jumping highlights. She bowed out by winning a Listed competition on the Flat in Galway in 2017.

Airlie Beach, who was raised by Mullins’ wife Jackie, was also famous for being covered accidentally at the age of two, with her product named Accidental.

Sadly passed away in June 2019, a few days after her son was fatally injured during a first obstacle, she left behind a foal by Walk In The Park. His four-year-old Mount Nelson gelding was offered to Goffs last June but did not sell.

Ain’t No Sunshine is also a half-brother to Screaming Rose, a daughter of Darsi who has won five times under the rules and has also been placed over hurdles twice for the Irish champion trainer, as well as the treble goalscorer Valerian Bridge, doubles – hurdler winner Irish Lass and the helpful Dr Machini.

The pair are also related to the unrivaled Daydream Beach, whose colt Crystal Ocean won the Tattersalls Ireland national sale last November when sold to Kevin Ross Bloodstock and Ben Case for €120,000.

The six-year-old will face a maximum of ten rivals in the bumper (4.10), including Grady Gastona Dawn Approach half-brother to Group winner and Grade 1 winner Coulsty, the former hard irona close relationship in Milan with the hunter Royal Rendezvous, winner of the 3rd and 1st year, and midnight fiddlera son of Midnight Legend, from the family of Aintree Hurdle striker and Champion Hurdle runner-up Celtic Chief.

There is another type very well related in the previous novice obstacle (1h30) in Kelso, with Cliffs of Dooneena full brother of Irish Derby hero Sovereign, is set to make his hurdles debut after a 570-day absence.

The son of Galileo and the magnificent mare Danehill Dancer Devoted To You won twice on the flat for Aidan O’Brien before moving on to Ralph Beckett and then Rose Dobbin.

Bred by Barronstown Stud, the seven-year-old is the fourth foal out of his dam, who was a Group placed juvenile for O’Brien and is out of an unreleased half-sister to the great Balanchine.
