Deep Space ran a couple of times at two years and eventually won a Handicap at three years. Ed Dunlop had a lot of fun with him and he won a few good races for him including the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot in 1999, ridden by Gary Carter. He was also third in the John Smiths Listed race, but despite being highly rated he was unfortunately not of Group standard so it was decided that he would be retired at 6 years old.
Gotham Warwick is our only non ex racehorse, having plied his trade in the dressage arena. He is a Danish Warmblood(Dansk Varmblod) - the modern sport horse breed of Denmark. Initially established in the mid-20th century, the breed was developed by crossing native Danish mares with elite stallions from established European bloodlines
Korakor was a successful National Hunt chaser, running at both the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National Meeting. However, a very nasty hock injury at Sandown in 2005 ended his racing career and we were asked to take him in the hope that a considerable rest period may prove beneficial to his recovery.
Monaassib was trained in Newmarket by Ed Dunlop and raced from three to seven years both at home and in France. He had an amazing racing career, winning £250,000 in his 5 years as a flat racer during which time he was ridden by the likes of Walter Swinburn, Willie Carson and Keiran Fallon. This started with a win in his Maiden at Salisbury beating Lake Coniston. He was a consistent horse and won or was placed on many of his starts. In total he won 11 races.
Supreme glory Alfie, as he is known to us is now 19 years old and has had a very illustrious career, including coming 2nd in the Grand National, 1st in the Welsh National and 1st in the Devon National. On each of these outings he was ridden by Leighton Aspell, who was his regular jockey, in fact only a handful of other have jockeys ever ridden him.
Talk Talk didn’t get too many runs under his belt before being retired as a 3 year old. However, he did manage to finish 4th in his last race as a racehorse in 2010. Given his small frame he was a sprinter and plied his trade on the flat. Despite his limited career he did grace Newmarket racecourse with his presence! The three jockeys to have the pleasure of riding him are Louis Beuzelin, Martin Dwyer and even top jockey Ryan Moore.
