Our Stable Star

Supreme Glory (Alfie)

Supreme Leader - Pentlows - Ran 25 Times - Wins 4 - Trainer  Pat Murphy

Big old fashioned sort of a chaser standing at around 17 h.
His racing career consisted of running 25 times and amassing £226,605.00 in prize money. 
 

   

The highlight came in 2001 at Chepstow, winning the Coral Eurobet Welsh National, ridden by Leighton Aspell, and trained by our patron Pat Murphy. In 2003 he put up a Stirling effort at Aintree in the Grand National again ridden by Leighton Aspell, to come 2nd to Monty’s Pass. 

Alfie is a permanent resident here and is no longer in ridden work due to a heart condition. Despite this he lives a happy life with his best friend Korakor also an ex chaser who has tacked the Aintree course. 

He also helps new horses to settle quickly, as he is accepting of all new arrivals and rarely runs about, helping them to relax and learn the routine here. All new arrivals seam to accept him as TOP MAN which makes our lives a lot easier. 

Not the most affectionate of horses but deep down he is a truly lovely person who would never wish to cause anyone any harm. He has always been an angel of a horse to ride, brilliant on the roads and immensely comfortable, ridden by complete novices to experienced riders, although could take a bit of a hold in open spaces.

     

  
   

Pat and Alfie

We cannot believe that at one time Supreme Glory could inflict such damage to his trainer. We found this on the internet and thought it would be worth sharing to give you an idea of what Mr Glory was like in his younger days.                                                                                                                     "Pat was delighted that this horse won especially as this is the horse that threw him earlier in the year and caused him to break his wrists and also his elbow"                                                                                   This is why Pat declined to ride him on his visit to us in 2013.                                                                             

   

 

He has been with us since 2010 and has not competed as such as we didn’t think at his age and with an illustrious career behind him that he needed to prove anything to anyone. What he has done with us is to help promote the charity by being our stable star at our home events and out and about at local shows and charity events.  

Even showing himself to be versatile at one event negotiating a Handy Pony fun class with ease, and winning a child rider class.  No mean feat for a once upon a time highly strung racehorse.

     

 
   

Four years in a row he has attended Buckham Fair, a popular day out organised and held Mr Martin Clunes. Talking to the crowds who admired his relaxed and laidback attitude and enjoying all the extra attention. Also attending Exeter Racecourse where he won the Devon National in 2000, again lapping up the attention from the crowd.You can adopt Alfie and help us at the same time. For more information on how to adopt Alfie or one of our other permanent residents, pop over to our Adoption page. Thank you for taking the time to read about our wonderful stable star Supreme Glory.
