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 French jumps stallion, No Risk At All: http://reboursiere-montaigu.com/no-risk-at-all/?lang=en. 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.
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.
Racing update (10th October): After a very good season last year - he is really well after his summer break. Paul has a Grade 2 race in mind for him on the Saturday of the Charlie Hall Meeting at Wetherby. He does so well fresh and we can't wait to see him out! JUST ONE SHARE IS AVAILABLE! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
