Definitly Red fine this morning


Definitly Red

Definitly Red is absolutely fine this morning after his sixth place finish in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase yesterday. Whilst he likes heavy ground it was riding tacky and he struggled to jump out of it, but he came in after the race ok and lives to fight another day. He travelled home well and has eaten up. He’ll be having an easy time now and we will probably see how he is before a decision is made as to whether he’s finished for the season or heads to Aintree next month.

It was perhaps not the result we were dreaming of but he was by no means disgraced and had plenty of good horses behind him. So many things can go wrong, with National Hunt horses in particular, and we were happy to get him there in one piece but more importantly we are relieved, and no one more so than Andy, that he has come back in one piece. Our thoughts are with those connections whose horses were not so lucky.
