Race entries

Ever since leaving Nicky Henderson's tutelage to set up on his own, Ben Pauling has been very adept at sourcing high quality animals for very reasonable prices.  He's tasted Grade 1 success on more than one occasion with more than one horse and his success is typified by horses such as Barters Hill, Willoughby Court, Kildisart, Global Citizen, A Hare Breath and Gowiththeflow. 

We purchased IMPERIAL KNIGHT as a lightly raced, improving gelding, by the progressive young sire MAHLER; https://coolmore.com/stallions/mahler, the sire of Bob Mahler, Ok Corral, Ms Parfois and Sutton Place and out of a BOB BACK mare (Bobs Worth, Roberto Goldback, Burton Port.)

From the family of Imperial Call, he stands at a sizeable 16.2hh, he is a thorough stayer, given he's from a very stout pedigree; his dam won over 3 miles. 

Sire update: "Beeches Stud sire Mahler continued a terrific season by siring a string of notable winners over the weekend" https://coolmore.com/farms/nationalhunt/news/mahler-makes-it-a-weekend-to-remember

Racing Update: A wonderfully tough, old boy. He stays all day and is very versatile, given that he’s a Hurdles winner but still a novice over fences. Given he’s thoroughly unexposed over fences, he could prove to be a thoroughly potent weapon switched to chasing against veteran contemporaries, who will have no secrets from the handicapper. A perfect introductory horse for any first time, would be National Hunt owner. He’s on his way back from a little foot problem, should be ready for February time and he’ll run right through the winter, Spring, and Summer. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
