Meet the horses currently in training with David Dennis Racing.
(BELL) JACK HOBBS -LONDON..
Mr G. Saville
Bell is a 2yo filly by Jack Hobbs who was purchased at the Goffs UK August sale at Doncaster. Her sire Jack Hobbs is an exciting new National Hunt stallion who won the Irish Derby by an impressive 5 lengths in 2015 for John Gosden. She has an athletic step to her and showed a good temperament at the sale which David and her owner Graham Saville liked on the day of the sale. She will be broken in and ridden away before being given the winter to mature. She won't run this season but is an interesting long term prospect for her owner.
By Getaway out of Tasmani
This half-brother to our very own Cyclop and Innisfree Lad was purchased at the Goffs Land Rover Sale in June 2022. A fine looking son of Getaway who has similarities to his half-brothers and has plenty of scope which should stand him in good stead in the future. He will be brought along steadily and we hope he gives us as much fun as his half-brothers have over the years! He has been broken in, schooled and cantering well. He will only run next year if he's ready for a run and we look forward to having him at Edgcote.

Wright Morgan Ltd
Broken Quest was purchased privately by David in February 2017 having run twice in Irish point to points finishing 3rd on his debut and then winning at Boulta on New Years Day 2017.
During his career Broken Quest is a five time winner over hurdles and four times over fences with career earnings of over £70,000 in win and place prize money. 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. Last season Broken Quest has been gaining confidence over fences and excelled in the spring when he again won three races on the bounce at Wincanton, Ludlow and Market Rasen. He is a pleasure to train and is another horse in the yard who could excel in veterans chases through out the season ahead for his owner Wright Morgan Ltd.
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. Career 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. Disappointingly he missed last season which was the first year he's missed in almost a decade of training. Cyclop has been a delight to train and we look forward to seeing him back in action in long distance and veterans chases again this season where he will hopefully give his owners continued fun.
Emmarelli has rejoined us at DD Racing after missing the past couple of season due to injury. She is a 6yo daughter of Schiaparelli who won her bumper well on her racecourse debut at Banger in July 2020 under Gavin Sheehan. Her owner breeder Emma Stewart should have plenty of fun when she returns to the racecourse as this fine strong well made mare has the size to make a decent chaser in the future.
Fifty shades Ovhay is a four year old who was purchased at the Spring Goffs Sale at Doncaster in May 2021. He is by Westener (David has trained horses by Westener in the past - these were Wade Harper, Key To The West and How's Vienna) and is out of an Anshan mare which means there is plenty of stamina in the pedigree. He is a strong, rangy horse who stands around 16.2 hands and has a very athletic step to him. He has a good attitude and had one run in a point to point bumper for experience in the spring of 2022. We look forward to sending him over hurdles this autumn and seeing how he progresses. His future is likely to be over fences in the long term.
