The Class Of Sadler's Wells

This all started for me at least when I realised that Goshen was like Tiger Roll in that he was inbred to Sadler’s Wells –

a recipe for success? & a little more background material:

“He passed that on to Galileo, they both have this great way about them. That temperament is key; racehorses need that temperament to stand up to training and doing the same thing repetitively every day.

“The big thing with both of them is their routine. They both like everything exactly the same way as it was the day before, from the way they were exercised, the time they were exercised, and the time they were fed.”

Amazing little horse, Tiger Roll, dual Grand National winner and four-time Cheltenham Festival wins from as a 4yo 17f’s to a 7yo the four mile National Hunt Chase and later the last two runnings of the Cross Country Chase.

So what’s he got that others haven’t? The Facebook group: The Class Of Sadler’s Wells where I post the daily runners:


One that had escaped my attentions until after he had won the Grand National Trial at Punchestown on Sunday, The Big Dog: seems we’ve got a genuine contender given his preferred soft ground:

Allmankind at Warwick yesterday – clocked a good time again but failed at the festival last year and probably up against it this too?
