Deep Space

Racing Career and Breeding

     

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. Famous jockeys to have ridden him include Keiron Fallon.

 

Pat Eddery and Frankie Dettori, in fact Frankie rode him in his very last race.

Life after racing

After his retraining at the charity Spacey went on to do Endurance. Despite doing well in his firstseason, after 8 months we decided it was in his best interest to return to us. He had suffered stresslaminitis and had become very head shy and even to this day he will only let those who he really truststo bridle him up.

His attitude in the stable is not always desirable, he can be a bit of a grump andseems to take an unreasonable dislike to some people who then become sport to him! We know thathe is really a complete softie, and if you stand him down he is quite pathetic – easier said than doneif he is gnashing his teeth at you!! However, his ridden work is exemplary, as long as you don't ask him to do any schooling or jumping.
