The owner of Fr Humphrey made him available to us on a free lease for the summer of 2019 and he raced four times for BG Racing. After two defeats in chases where he seemed to struggle to finish his races strongly, he was tried in a three runner novice hurdle at Fontwell with a tongue tie fitted. To everyone’s surprise, he won and then followed this up with a 2nd place (beaten a nose) at Kempton in October.
With the agreement of his owner, we have extended our lease for a further six months, to target him at the new veteran’s chase series for conditional jockeys. We were delighted when he won the first qualifier for this series at Huntingdon in November and he was then prepared for the final at Newbury in March. Sadly the Covid-19 outbreak hit in the days prior to that race and resulted in it being abandoned.
With two wins and a short head 2nd in his last three starts, Humphrey is still obviously in fine form and looks like he may still be well handicapped and when the opportunity was presented to keep him in training for the summer, we jumped at the opportunity. He is proven on the kind of ground that normally prevails in the summer and autumn and we are looking forward to seeing what he can do on the track during the current six-month shareholding period.
