Red Risk was sold at the Osarus sale, as part of a dispersal sale from the owner. He was first flagged up to us by our purchasing agent Toby Jones, immediately following his impressive Auteuil win and given he was entered for the sale, the purchase of Red Risk, was then, simply a case of being in the right place at the right time for us. 

He is by the up and coming French jumps stallion, No Risk At All: Grade 1 winners Epatante and Esprit Du Large have really put him on the map.

In France, he won his Novice Chase at Auteuil (the 'Cheltenham' of France) by an impressive 4 lengths, sauntering clear from the last, winning eased down in the end. Rarely does any horse win by 4 lengths at a track like Auteuil, but such was his authority that day. Watch the two videos of his wins at Auteuil in the gallery. In his impressive victory on 11th September 2019, he stalks the pace, is produced to lead at the last and stretches clear on the run in, to put a strong Auteuil novice field, to bed.

Paul’s French imports just seem to improve, year on year, as he gets to know them better; the French pedigrees seem to particularly suit Paul’s method of training. He’s almost 16.2 hands high, so is a very sizeable individual who has such scope at his fences.

Racing Update: Very talented and highly rated hurdler/chaser. Marginally better over hurdles, he’s ambivalent to underfoot conditions (surprisingly thrived on heavy at Uttoxeter), goes best fresh and looks destined for the winners’ enclosure very soon, God willing. Instant action and an opportunity to have a horse trained by the 13 times Champion trainer Paul Nicholls, for very little outlay. TIMEFORM RATED: CHASE141 HURDLE133. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
