The owner of Fr Humphrey made him available to BG Racing 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.
He is a 3-mile handicap chaser who likes good ground and he is clearly capable of winning further races. 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 is now being prepared for the final at Newbury in March.
To ensure that shareholders have plenty of opportunity to go racing, Fr Humphrey is offered in partnership with Mount Oliver who has been leased over the same period. For one price, shareholders will have share in both horses for the duration of the lease.
