Aintree Leading Sires

While this year’s Grand National winner Tiger Roll, the little bay gelding who has entered legendary NH status after his back-to-back National wins, the first horse to achieve such a feat since Red Rum 45 years ago, has not taken his sire to the top of the NH stallion table, the race has still had […]

National Hunt Sire Cheltenham Preview

The late Presenting has not won a NH champion sires’ title since the 2010-11 season, but the former Rathbarry Stud sire, who has won the sires’ title four times and been a top three stallion every year since 2014-15, is leading the title charge this season.

Beginning of the British 2017-2018 NH Season

The weekend of October 14th and 15th marked the beginning of the British 2017-18 NH season “proper”, heralded by Chepstow’s meeting and a decent Listed novice chase for The Robert Mottram Memorial Trophy.
