He’s still pretty fat but that’s just him nowadays - I’d certainly be worried if he ever looks on the light side!
His first win in November 2012 which was also my first winner with HOTSR – since then he has stolen my heart!

He is pretty amazing isn’t he? He is the perfect syndicate horse!
Maybe not my favourite but I’ll never forget GLC rearing up on debut and pulling down the fascia in the saddling up boxes at Epsom! Then during the race he whinnied the whole way. He was gelded after that!
