Meet the horses currently in training with David Dennis Racing.
Mrs Gill Duckworth and Mrs Pat Day
Accordingtogino has recently arrived to DD Racing after being in training for the past few seasons at Dan Skelton's where he was a winner over hurdles and fences. He will hopefully enjoy a change of scenery and we look forward to seeing if he enjoys the Edgcote surroundings.
Anuas Ar An Bpost is a new arrival at the yard after running in Ireland. He is a reasonably young horse who has gained valuable experience over hurdles being placed 3rd over 3 miles earlier in the year. He will be aimed at novice handicap hurdles in the not too distant future and is settling in well so far.
Broken Quest has always had the size and scope to be a chaser and after having to miss parts of his racing career through injury he went chasing in February 2021 when he made a winning debut over fences which was great for all concerned. We look forward to seeing Broken Quest continuing his chasing career.
Cyclop is one of the toughest jump horses that David has ever trained. He was purchased by David after winning a claiming hurdle around Auteuil in the spring of 2014 as a 3yo. Given he's not a very big horse it was remarkable performance which was a factor as to why David liked him.
Cyclop has won 3 times over hurdles and 5 times over fences, been placed 12 times earning a total of £96,000 in win and place prize money. Highlights have been winning the Lincolnshire National at Market Rasen in 2017 (and was desperately unlucky not to win it in 2020 when runner up having been denied a run) and winning the William Hill Highland National at Perth in April 2021.
Cyclop has been a pleasure to train and we look forward to seeing in action in long distance chase again where he will give his owners continued fun.
Dubh Rose is a fine looking son of the late Black Sam Bellamy who has the physique of a future chaser. This tall rangy gelding was bred by his enthusiastic syndicate of owners, The Stablemates, who have a nice prospect to look forward to in the future. He will be given time to settle in for his first season of training and we look forward to having him at Edgcote where he will be learning the ropes in the months ahead.
Flying Verse is a half brother to 135 rated Roman Flight who was one of the stable stars in David's early years as a trainer.
He's a 3 time winner over hurdles and has won twice over fences as well as being placed 10 times over jumps. He's not the biggest horse in the worLd but has run some great races and will hopefully continue to do so in the future. His second in the Norfolk National at Fakenham was a good effort giving 7lb's to the winner.
