‘Captain Bob’

Claimed for £8000  from Chelmsford and 33% or 66% is available including running him in your colours. 33% taken. 

4 time winning son of leading sire,  ‘Dark Angel’,  £44,000 earnings on the flat to date – and with a pedigree that suggests he should make into a decent handicap hurdler. His dam Birthday Present has bred 2 hurdle winners, one of these ‘Call it On’ who was such a tremendous stayer for us and won many times on the flat, over hurdles and chasing. Dark Angel is also getting decent winners over jumps, including the high class, ‘Guitar Pete.’ This horse is rarely out of the placings – in 8 starts this year he has only been out of the first 3 ONCE and that was at Laytown on the beach. He looks great value and potentially great fun – goes on good to firm, soft – and the all weather!



7 year old  – Rated 119 over hurdles

Excellent value at £2250 + VAT for 25%

 bBecome an Owner in this capable young hurdler who has had a 2nd at Ascot and a win at Warwick in the last 12 months – he’s a useful horse who should give his new Owners plenty of fun and good days out this Winter.
