A Vos Gardes is a horse with plenty of ability, he won 2 bumpers in his first season before going novice hurdling. He was placed on every start during his novice season, including winning at Doncaster and finishing second in the Sidney Banks Memorial Novice Hurdle L. The following season he ran well to finish second at Bangor in a competitive handicap hurdle, unfortunately after his run at Chepstow he picked up a minor leg injury which kept him off the track for over 600 days. He returned to go Novice Chasing and ran well to finish second at Wetherby first time out, however, he then picked up a series of letters before running a much-improved race to finish 3rd at Chepstow. The plan was to run him through the summer, however, he frustratingly picked up a fracture just before he ran. He has since fully recovered and has been on the horse walker all winter and spring. As he belonged to myself, he was always shuffled to the back of the queue to return to work and so I am delighted that he will be leased by the Racing Club. He now looks potentially very well handicapped for next season, either over fences or over hurdles.
