He’s an impressive young stallion, who was a very fast and precocious horse himself, yet he trained on magnificently well to take the Hungerford Stakes, the July Cup and the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot. Lethal Force has recently moved to stand in France at Haras de Grandcamp.

There’s a popular saying in racing; “everyone loves a grey” and it’s pretty much true, so it was almost certainly of little surprise to breeder Richard Botterill, that, when first setting foot in the World, he turned out to be, just like his father Lethal Force, a grey!
Racing Update: He’s a grand servant. Always runs his race and runs very regularly all over the country. Nicely handicapped once more, he looks set for another profitable season. He’s one to consider sending jumping at the end of this season where he could prove quite a revelation, from a fairly lofty Flat rating. Stays well, acts on all types of going so, his future remains very promising. His race entries/declarations will show on this page. TIMEFORM RATED 85.
