About

Musical Lyrics is a thoroughbred mare with classic sprinting bloodlines. Raced successfully as a 2, 3 and 4yr old, she started eventing at 5. She was placed every time out at PN and N, being upgraded to Intermediate after her 5th outing. With multiple placings at this level, Andrew Nicholson took over, who scored some notable successes with her including a 14th at Pau 2*. She is now retired, having quickly accrued 50 BE points, and to date has produced 5 foals, by ‘It’s Without Doubt’, ‘Grannex’, ‘Welton Ambassador’, ‘Jumbo’ and ‘Catherston Dazzler’. She never fails to pass outstanding movement and quality.
