Only four of the 15 entries for the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (2.20) are ungelded
colts or older horses who could have a sire career in front of them.
Imagine the first drink of the weekend without that lifting of the heart, that surge of words, that sudden conviction one still has a Pulitzer Prize book beneath one's belt or the possibility that one could recognise, then buy, an ungelded
future Grand National winner.
18 In horse racing, what name is given to an ungelded
male thoroughbred horse until he reaches five years of age?
Perhaps it should be no surprise the stallion - a rare ungelded
jumper to make it to the breeding shed - is so adept in this department, as he rarely put a foot wrong in his own racing career.
Racing needs a new flagship, one that shows the non-racing public the beauty of the unexhausted, ungelded
, unobstructed horse at full tilt; one that produces a winner we know is better than all those he's beaten.
