Blu Cavalier was purchased out of a selling hurdle at Fakenham in January 2019. Just a month later, he gave us all a day to remember when finishing third in the £85,000 Grade 3 Betfair Hurdle at Ascot! He is back from a summre break and will be targeted at the valuable Betfair Trophy at Ascot on December.
Originally intended to be a six-month syndicate, Blu Cavalier ran a brilliant race to finish third in the Betfair Hurdle and backed that up with a fine run in the Grade 2 Select Hurdle, despite trip and ground being against him, so all involved decided to keep him in training for 2019/20!
His big target is the £150,000 Betfair Exchange Trophy at Ascot on Saturday 21st December!

Though the training licence is under former event rider Ali’s name, this burgeoning training operation based at Castle Piece Stables in Eastbury is very much a partnership, together with husband and ex-National Hunt jockey Sam.
With over 50 winners so far, Castle Piece Stables has seen a significant increase in capacity and Ali & Sam now have 40 horses in training for 2019. With the use of private gallops, as well as all the facilities that Lambourn has to offer, it is a wonderful setting in which to train and we are delighted to have an involvement in the yard.
Blu Cavalier was their first horse for us and he finished a fine third in the £85,000 Betfair Hurdle at Ascot on his first start for us. He is a tremendously exciting prospect for some top-class races in 2019/20.
