SOLO SAXOPHONE BECOMES THE FIRST FRANKEL TO RUN OVER HURDLES AND WIN OVER HURDLES.
On a surprisingly mild day at Catterick BGC’s latest recruit created a little piece of history that can never be taken away from us.
Dan Skelton trained Solo Saxophone our most expensive purchase to date at €62,000 headed to the North Yorkshire with a fair bit of spotlight on him, so much so that we were interviewed before the race and all because of his father FRANKEL.
He became the first of the superstar stallions offspring to run and win over hurdles, the reaction that followed has been unbelievable and he was trending on Twitter, the future for him is incredibly exciting and he has probably gained a little following of his own not just because of his sire but in the way in which he won trading at 99/1 and looking well beaten before powering home by 4 lengths under a superb ride from Harry Skelton.
