Dan <br>(the name is Collier Hill)<br>Indeed the horse was purchased for a small sum but last Sunday showed you that you don’t always have to be trained by one of the fashionable trainers or have one of the World’s better known jockeys on to win.
Collier Hill has run on the flat a lot more times than in hurdle races.<br>Just 5 runs over hurdles (2 wins) yet 40 runs on the flat with 13 wins and 9 seconds. <br>So in over half the time on the flat the horse has either won or finished second………………and for the owners and staff a goldmine with total prize money of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£2,306,585.<br>Cant crib anything there myself.
What about Les Arcs? Les Arcs career began in 2003 when with John Gosden. Even if Les Arcs had run in a bumper (which he hasn’t) he still wouldn’t be the first horse to win a G1 on the Flat that started his career in that sphere, that accolade would still go to Collier Hill as his Irish Leger victory from 2005 obviously came before Les Arcs Golden Jubilee win.
