Dogon, by Intello, has been a thoroughly enjoyable roller coaster ride for his owners, since he arrived in GB from his native France.
There have been times when he’s looked very classy, with a rating of 138 and travelling like a superstar in a number of his races, but at times he’s taken to not producing as much as we’d like off the bridle. Paul Nicholls and his team have masterminded his GB career to date, to either win or place in 8 of his 15 races over here but there has always just been the inkling that he should have won more of the races he was placed in.
So, a change of scenery to Dr Richard Newland and he won on his stable debut!
Racing Update: He is a well handicapped horse, so it’s possible there could be plenty more fun to be had with Dogon, this Summer and beyond, both hurdling and chasing. An exciting project for the short, medium and hopefully, long term. He’s still only just turned a 7yo lest we forget. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
