Salto Chisco and a few of the team at our last stable visit to Harry Whittington’s yard. Salty is currently enjoying an extremely well deserved winter holiday after another wonderful summer at the races notching up 2 wins, 2 seconds and 3 thirds! We are visiting Harry’s yard in December where we will see Salty and our young filly Pollyamorous! Stable visits are such fun, social and insightful days where we get a truly special look behind the scenes of the race world. They are also a great opportunity to meet the club horses and their stable mates! #saltochisco #harrywhittingtonracing #hillbarnstables #stablevisit #britishracingclub #nationalhuntracing #pollyamorous #clubmembers #jointheclub @harrywhittingtonracing

INTRODUCING THE 6th MEMBER OF OUR NATIONAL HUNT TEAM – POLLYAMOROUS Age: 4 Nickname: Polly Trainer: Harry Whittington Pedigree: Califet – Our Polly (Saint Des Saints) Wins: Unraced Chaser/hurdler: N/A Pollyamarous is a 4 year old filly by the sire Califet. She joined the club last year after catching Harry Whittington’s eye at the sales in France. She has gone through a huge transformation over the past 6 months having grown and strengthened immensely and according to our trainer is a big unit with some attitude! The perfect combination. She is doing everything that is asked of her and is really pleasing Harry with her strength and attitude. She will start her racing career in a National Hunt Flat Race before embarking on her hurdling career. Her only sibling that has raced so far was a smart bumper horse last season winning or getting placed in all four of his starts. He made an impressive hurdling debut at Aintree on Sunday and was the Racing Post’s ‘eye catcher’ of the meeting! Meanwhile her sire Califet has been causing quite a stir over in France with some very exciting progeny performances. His offspring are becoming quite sort after. Join Pollyamorous’ exciting racing journey and enjoy the ownership experience with her and all of the other Club horses.

She is a strong and hardy 5 year old mare by the sire Malinas. She won a point to point and a bumper for her previous trainer then moved to Anthony Honeyball last season and finished a close 2nd in her only bumper start and 4th on her hurdling debut before being put away for the summer. She is really catching the eye with her enthusiasm and we are looking forward to campaigning her over hurdles this season. She has shown a great deal of potential in all of her races so far, she is very game and has a real competitive streak.

INTRODUCING THE 4th MEMBER OF OUR NATIONAL HUNT TEAM – PEUR DE RIEN Age: 6 Nickname: Roger Trainer: Oliver MC Sherwood Pedigree: Kapgarde – Tango Princess (Fabulous Dancer) Wins: n/a Places: n/a Chaser/hurdler: Hurdler Peur De Rien is a good looking son of Kapgarde, he is a big horse at 17 hands and has a real presence. He has always worked extremely well at home, he is a gorgeous horse and moves like a dream. Last season he was not very consistent and although he travelled through his races beautifully, he just wasn’t able to finish the race off strongly. He has had revolutionary wind surgery over the summer. He is looking fantastic and has been working and schooling superbly as usual so hopefully this season we can see him transfer some of the class he shows at home on to the racecourse. He will start the season hurdling to get him back in the swing of things before embarking on a novice chasing career. He has a lot of scope and jumps beautifully so it will be exciting to see him over a fence. Join Peur De Rien’s exciting racing journey and enjoy the ownership experience with him and all of the other Club horses.

INTRODUCING THE 3rd MEMBER OF OUR NATIONAL HUNT TEAM – EMIRAT DE CATANA Age: 5 Nickname: Ratty Trainer: Lucinda Russell Racing Pedigree: Linda’s Lad – Kolada (Cyborg) Wins: 1 Places: n/a Chaser/hurdler: Both Emirat De Cantana is a five year old by the sire Linda's Lad, he stands at 16.1 hands and joined Lucinda Russell’s yard from the Irish point to point circuit. He is a good looking horse and has settled down hugely since arriving from Ireland. Ratty showed nice progression in the Spring when winning on his handicap debut in fine style. He has had a nice break to gear him up for an autumn/winter campaign novice chasing. He ran an excellent race on his chasing debut jumping boldly and bravely from the front and was all set to finish a very credible 2nd before taking a tumble at the last fence. Thankfully he was none the worse following his late departure. He is an exciting young Scottish prospect who has plenty of scope and potential now he embarks on his chasing career! Join Emirat De Catana’s exciting racing journey and enjoy the ownership experience with him and all of the other Club horses.

INTRODUCING THE 2nd MEMBER OF OUR NATIONAL HUNT TEAM – FESTIVAL DAWN Age: 7 Nickname: Squirrel Trainer: Philip Hobbs Pedigree: Kayf Tara – Keel Road (Luso) Wins: N/A Places: 2 Chaser/hurdler: Hurdler Festival Dawn is a lovely looking daughter of Kayf Tara. She was born at 5.00am on the Tuesday of the Cheltenham festival hence her name. Festival Dawn was recruited from the Point-to-point scene last year and went in to training with Philip Hobbs. It is clear she is a horse with a lot of ability finishing 2nd in two hot novice hurdles, however she has had a very interrupted career with various illnesses and setbacks. She has only raced 4 times under rules so is very lightly raced for her age. She is as tough as they come and the form of her novice hurdles has worked out very well so with a little luck she will be able to reach her full potential this season. She is a very exciting prospect for the club! Join Festival Dawn’s exciting racing journey and enjoy the ownership experience with her and all of the other Club horses. Just go to our website www.britishracingclub.co.uk to find out more and become a member of the BRC today and one of the proud owners of Festival Dawn!

Being by Presenting he would want better ground, but he has shown in his past form that he is quite versatile when it comes to going. He absolutely loves his racing and is competitive over hurdles and fences! At the age of 11 he is still going strong and has put in some career best performances already this season. His chasing stats over the last 2 years speak for themselves: 1,3,2,2,2,3,1,1,3,2 He has the heart of a lion and is a firm Club favourite!

A jolly evening at @wolvesraces today with Club horse Miss Gargar. After a slow start and finding herself out the back and wide for most of the race Miss Gargar finished with a wet sail to pick up 3rd on the line. She obviously loved the return to her favourite track and finished the race in eye catching fashion. Well done to jockey and trainer Thomas Greatrex and @harrydunlopracing #missgargar #garswood #wolverhamptonraces #harrydunlopracing #thomasgreatrex #britishracingclub
