    Hi Lovely Lady,

    First horse I ever followed as a little kid in the mid/late sixties. You are right it was a grey, and from memory I think Fred Winter trained it and Brough Scott and AndyTurnell riding it. I thought it was a  handicapper rather than a classy sort but I may be wrong it was so long ago. Certainly used to win two or three a season with my sixpence on it!

    There are many I’ll never forget, but he leads them. Wonderful horse, wonderful attitude and a proper racehorse.

    Do you want that at SP or paired with Le Moss? :biggrin:<br>When I think of one, I always think of the other.

    Aonoch???  Might I hve seen him racing against Bankers Benefit at limerick jUnction (tipperary) when I was a very small boy.

    My own two would be southern air and saffron lord cause they are the first names that really caught my attension.

    Apologies for cheating but I think a distinction neds to be made between the top class horses and the odd ones that I developed an affection for who were of limited ability.

    So on the flat I will nominate Harayir as the class horse that will always stick with me. I backed her for the Guineas and was distraught when Carson chose Aqaarid over her but she won anyway :biggrin:

    My less famous flat horse that I will always remember was a plodding old grey stayer called Coleridge. He was a veteran when I worked in Ladbrokes but he brightened up the winter running in all weather handicaps between 1m6f and 2 miles usually runing well without winning.

    Jumps: Class horse One Man and less famous, the loveably slow but game KittenKat<br>
