My first Tattersalls Ireland store horse purchase bought as a 3yo at the August 2014 sale now named ‘Grays Choice’ made a promising debut run in the Musselburgh bumper on Friday.
Dobbin (original eh and all my fault!) as we call him at home ran a race full of promise finishing 4th beaten 4 lengths after running a little green and being impeded on the run in.
The 4yo is a big chasing type and hopefully has a decent future ahead of him.
The horse is for sale but after the way he ran we are in no hurry to sell the horse.
To have selected the horse on breeding and then with George giving him the usual very careful physical check over and getting the thumbs up, I always felt confident Dobbin was a little under the radar on the day and we would be bringing him home.
To then see Dobbin broken in and slowly develop to become the lovely stamp of the horse he is today is all down to the hard work, patience and skilled horsemanship of team Bewley.
