We purchased 'Howzer' at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale. He is by REQUINTO, described as "Dansili's fastest 2 year old," now stands in Italy.
Howzer Black has a super page; being out of a winner producing mare who hails from a family packed with Group performers. Generally speaking, at Middleham Park, we buy the very best pedigree that we can afford. It stands to reason that the stronger the genes the faster a horse can run, just so long as the horse in question can withstand training. There's a saying in racing that "you can't train paper," alluding to the fact that an unsound individual with a strong pedigree on paper, won't withstand training. So, it's always a balance of pedigree versus confirmation unless you have the sort of money that Coolmore and Godolphin possess, in which case you can afford both.
Runs every fortnight and wins plenty of prize money, each and every year, including his fair share of wins too. He’s just the perfect horse for anyone taking the first step into racehorse ownership. If going racing, as an owner, this summer, and getting yourself into the winners’ enclosure are paramount, then look no further. He’s just the ticket.
Racing Update: He's in the form of his life and has pulled out a career best Timeform rating on 93 at York in June. He’s a really tough and ultra-consistent fun horse for his owners. Now a five-time winner, just look at some of his 2021 form figures: 2, 3, 3, 2, 5, 3, 2, 1, 2. We have got some more race options for him in mind. TIMEFORM RATED: 93.
