Twenty Syndicate Members in Foxtrot Racing’s Hogan’s Height are eagerly awaiting the Randox Grand National on 10th April.
Hogan’s Height won the 2019 Grand Sefton Chase over the National fences and trainer Jamie Snowden quickly set his sights on winning the world’s most famous steeplechase. The syndicates hopes were dashed last year when the Grand National was cancelled due to Covid-19.
Trainer Jamie Snowden hopes their patience will be rewarded. “it was frustraitng he wasn’t able to run last year as his preparation had been perfect. There aren’t many horses to have won over the National Fences and he’ll go into the race this year with a live chance. We’ll run him in the Cross Country race at Cheltenham Festival in March and then it’s onto Aintree. We can’t wait!”.
Allocated a weight of 10st 3lbs at the weights announcement, the excitement is already building amongst the syndicate.
“It’ll be a dream come true to have a runner in the National” stated Foxtrot member Phil King, “it’s a race I’ve watched all my life and the idea that I am going to be an owner of a horse running in the National is just incredible”.
It’s still not clear if owners will be able to attend Aintree in April, but the syndicate will enjoy the thrill of a Grand National runner whether they are on course or watching at home.
Dan Abraham, Foxtrot Syndicate Manager can’t wait “Everyone knows the Grand National. The syndicate owners will enjoy the build up and being able to tell their friends and family that they have a runner in the Grand National, just as much as the day itself. Hogan’s Height wasn’t an expensive purchase and this is yet another example of why racing enthusiasts should get involved in a syndicate or club. Some dreams do come true!”
