SEASON SUMMARY 2013-14

An impressive tally of 50 Graded/Listed winners were sourced by the Highflyer team during the latest NH Season. Fourteen of these victories came at Grade 1 level and top of the shop was probably SILVINIACO CONTI who took both the King George VI Chase at Kempton and the Betfred Bowl at Aintree. BOBS WORTH added the Lexus Chase to his big-race tally whilst over hurdles, THE NEW ONE took the Aintree Hurdle and MY TENT OR YOURS won a brace of Grade 1 events and finished a very close second in the Champion Hurdle itself.

The novice divisions proved strong hunting grounds for Highflyer-purchased horses. Over fences BALDER SUCCES proved to be one of the very best two-mile novice chasers around with a number of impressive wins culuminating in the Aintree Grade 1. TAQUIN DU SEUIL, UXIZANDRE and HINTERLAND were other Grade 1 winning novices for Highflyer. Whilst over hurdles, JOSSES HILL, ROYAL BOY and LAC FONTANA all won Grade 1 novice hurdles during the season.

Big handicap winenrs over fences included Triolo D’Alene (Hennessy Gold Cup), Al Co (Scottish National), Mountainous (Welsh National) and Ma Filleule (Topham Trophy), and over hurdles, the winners were Splash of Ginge (Betfair Hurdle), Whisper (Coral Cup) and Lac Fontana (County Hurdle), were all sourced by the team at Highflyer.
