I don’t get to purchase many National Hunt horses but love every chance I do and can boast a 100% winners to runners ratio to date. One of those purchases is the current progressive hurdler Golden Birthday who won a class 3 hurdle by no less than 17 lengths when winning on Monday 31st July.
I purchased the son of Poliglote for £100,000 from the Cheltenham sales on behalf of owner Gary Stevens and he has now won or placed in 11 of his 13 starts with this victory being his best run to date. He will now be aimed at a Class 2 race at the beginning of September.
Congratulations to owner Gary Stevens and to trainer Harry Fry.
