Meet the horses currently in training with David Dennis Racing.
by Getaway ex Merry Missed
Mr G. Saville
Merry Mistress was purchased by David at the Goffs Land Rover sale 2019 for a bargain price of £10,000gns. She is by Getaway out of an unraced mare by the Vinnie Roe which has undoubtedly injected some stamina into her pedigree. Her second dam is by Presenting ensuring a good quality dam line from a breeding perspective.
Merry Mistress was an impressive debut winner at Hereford in December 2020. She traveled extremely well and quickened to win by an impressive 10 lengths which was a great start to her career. She then contested some listed bumpers before going hurdling. After being placed consistently in Novice Hurdles and on her handicap debut at Chepstow Merry Mistress won her first hurdle race at Hereford under jockey Tom Bellamy. Jumping well and travelling on the pace she quickened nicely after the second last hurdle to win by a convincing 8 lengths with her ears pricked. This was a tidy performance and we hope she will cope with her 7lb rise to 104 as she has been very consistent over hurdles to date and deserved her success at Hereford.
This striking 5yo is by Camelot (the last horse to complete the Guineas and Derby double in 2012) and out of Princess Caetani, who was David's first ever winner in September 2013. He made his debut at Hereford in a Bumper finishing a very promising 2nd and filled the same spot at Chepstow on his second start, only beaten a length and half. He is an exciting prospect who should have a bright future over jumps and is one to note for the future.
