2013 Gelding by SIR PERCY – WELSH ANGEL (Dubai Destination)
Trainer: ALAN KING
He is a well made horse by Sir Percy, who is really proving himself as a sire. He did very well to win as a 2 year old and earned money in a valuable Sales Race at Doncaster. He was a credit to Eve Johnson Houghton, having not run a bad race in 2016, winning four races – twice at Newbury, a big prize at York and the £140,000 Old Rowley Cup. He also went close in a big handicap at Glorious Goodwood and was narrowly beaten in the Dubai Duty Free £80,000 handicap at Newbury. He has given his Owners an exciting season as a 3yo, including a trip to Qatar where he was invited to run in the Qatar Derby. As a 4yo he was placed in Group races and is a high class performer.
He has now moved over to Alan King for a dual-purpose career and made a great debut over hurdles finishing second in the prestigious Dovecote at Kempton.
Performed well again on the flat this season with a good third in the Gr 3 St Simon Stakes at Newbury.
