Golden Equinox Racing is delighted to offer shares for sale in the talented hurdler Solo Saxophone. He is trained by Ben Haslam in Middleham, and you can purchase a 2.5% share for £500, plus £75 per month to cover training fees.
A useful maiden on the flat for Dermot Weld as a three-year-old, Solo Saxophone garnered plenty of attention when sent juvenile hurdling, as he became the first offspring of the great Frankel to win under NH rules. He did so by four lengths on his hurdling debut at Catterick, before following up at Wetherby on his very next start.
He confirmed himself a smart horse by the close of that season, finishing third to Vision des Flos in a Listed hurdle at Exeter before taking a highly commendable sixth in the Grade-3 Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Following a gelding operation and wind surgery, Solo Saxophone got off to a quiet start during the 2018/19 season, but his mark dropped accordingly. He came roaring back to his best with a seven-length victory at Wetherby in a two-mile five and a half-furlong handicap hurdle in April of last year and then doubled up over two and a half miles at Hexham just four days later.
He was placed on his only three subsequent starts in good company, and was unlucky to lose out by just a head when stepped up to three miles for the first time on his most recent appearance at Southwell in July. Solo Saxophone has since left the Dan Skelton yard (where he had been throughout his jumping career) and will be operating from a mark of 132 when he makes his eagerly anticipated debut for Ben Haslam.
Ben enjoyed a stellar 2019 under both codes and it is exciting to contemplate where he can take Solo Saxophone. He remains totally unexposed over staying trips, has a rating which should ensure he gets into some very smart handicaps, and he also has the option to go chasing at some point in the future.
At just six years of age this well-bred and talented individual has his best years ahead of him and he is sure to provide syndicate members with lots of thrills and excitement. With interest sure to be high, make sure you act fast to avoid disappointment!
