13th October - Huntingdon
One runner today at Huntingdon.
We were over the moon with Peur De Rien (Roger) last time out at Uttoxeter when he won nicely at his first attempt over fences, he is a horse we have always thought a lot of but sadly he had wind issues which looked likely to curtail his career.
Roger had a revolutionary (at the time) new procedure performed by Ben Brain which grafted a muscle to the side of his larynx for support, thus enabling him to breathe properly at the business end of a race.
As he only had one run last season, due to ground, we were unable to see if it had been successful.
It has been a big team effort by all involved and also to Rupert Fowler for giving him the chance to undergo the surgery.
Roger got into a lovely rhythm at Uttoxeter and his jumping was exceptional, he came back from that race full of confidence and he has continued to school and work well at home.
Roger is a stunning looking, good moving horse who is easy to ride and kind to deal with.
He will be ridden by Jamie Bargary who has been coming in to school regularly this season.
Peur De Rien is looked after and will be led up by Cameron Baker, Roger was Cameron’s first lead up when he won last time out so hopefully he can continue to be a lucky omen ??????
