Chase was the most amazing horse to be around and had the most incredible character. He knew he was special but he was such a kind horse with it too. Bred by Liz here at Conkwell where she also bred his mother Yamrah, and stood his sire Midnight Legend. Stan and La...

  We have made the decision to retire The Druids Nephew after his run at Cheltenham on New Years day.
