There will not be many better bred nor more imposing horses in National Hunt racing than Black Prince.  He is a most striking individual with a lovely nature, and has always been a gentle giant.  Believe it or not, the photo is him as a yearling.

On breeding he should have been a sprinter, out of a classic Sheikh Hamdan al-Maktoum dam line at Shadwell.  His sire is Falco (top-class miler who won the French 2000 Guineas in 2008) while the dam is multiple-winning Thamara, by Street Cry who sired the famous Breeders’ Cup winner Zenyatta.  Falco, however, has sired National Hunt winners, the best known of whom is Peace And Co who won the Triumph Hurdle at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival.

He was bought by Ron Huggins, who owned the Ascot Gold Cup winner Double Trigger.  Anthony Honeyball trained him to race thirteen times, and in his last six runs he finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd x 2 and 4th.  His debut juvenile hurdle run was excellent, with the Racing Post describing him as “a sure-fire winner in waiting”.  Unfortunately he picked up an injury, came to us for some TLC and seems to have made a full recovery.  The last horse we acquired from Anthony Honeyball was Solstice Star who has since won eight times for us and loves our carpet gallops.  All crossed for the same result with Black Prince.
