Today, a daughter of Scorpion called She Mite Bite was making her hurdles debut for trainer Nicky Henderson after coming over to England with some smart form she picked up when winning an Irish points race in May.
This saw her being bought for £28,000 and looking like today she could get off the mark in an ordinary Class 4 novice hurdle contest but instead she did something we have seen from a horse out of Scorpion and veered off to the right when she looked clear to make a challenge for the line.
Jeremiah McGrath managed to stay on board and finish the race as runner up but the question that needs answering is why this has happened again to a horse out Scorpion and is it a coincidence or just bad luck.
Overall She Mite Bite does look like a smart horse, not one that will be a show stopper at the big festivals but definitely a horse that will be sure to make profit for her owners after her expenses.
