“With the National Hunt season about to get fully underway I wanted to remind you of the very exciting prospect called Tower of Allen that we bought a few weeks ago and who is in training with Nicky Henderson. He is an absolute belter of a horse who is doing everything right so if you have a moment do watch this short video (click here) of Nicky talking about the horse, as his words have considerably more resonance than anything that I could ever write! I also attach my original email along with his pedigree, a picture and the syndicate fact sheet for your interest. Having a horse with Nicky is enormous fun and this fellow really does look as though he will take his share owners to some smart spots in the coming winter months”
Because of the very wet weather this winter just finished, we’ve barely been able to scratch the surface with Tower Of Allen and his two Bumper runs have been disappointing. The first run came on heavy ground, which he hated.
Nicky Henderson told us that he has since kicked himself for running him on it and would never do so again.
We then waited until March 19th before we saw him again and he unfortunately suffered a very minor injury, which resulted in him being pulled up by Nico De Boinville.
Nicky has now put him away for next season, when he’ll embark on the job he was born for…jumping.
