Purchased for 35,000gns at the Tattersalls Ascot yearling sale, he is by LETHAL FORCE. Read the Racing Post story about our purchase here: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/bloodstock-latest/middleham-park-racing-among-the-buyers-stocking-up-at-ascot-yearling-sale/399048.

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!

He’s a grand servant - having won 6 times and earning £92,000 of prize money. 

Racing Update (May): A recent winner on the snow at St Moritz, his wind caught him out at Wolves, so we’ve tidied that up now, and he should prove a super, dual-purpose horse for the Summer. He’s already been schooled over poles and has taken to the new discipline particularly well. If he proves a top class/Saturday handicapper over hurdles (he loves a bit of juice in the ground) then he could be around for a couple of NH seasons, interspersing Flat runs too, however, if he’s only capable of winning an ordinary hurdle or two over the Summer we’ll look to move him on in October 2024, at the Horses In Training Sales in Newmarket - so there’s a plan, either way this fellow - he’ll do the talking. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
