A bay 6 y. old and purchased from the prestigious ORBY SALES as an expensive yearling and by the sire INTENSE FOCUS out of I’LL BE WAITING (VETTORI). The sire – by GIANT’S CAUSEWAY is being represented very well. The pedigree is full of black type.
Going by the name of ‘DOC’, he is a big scopey horse who has always been thought of as a chaser in the making. As kind a horse as you can meet.

Doc has run some very good races as well as some disappointing ones. However, it was believed it may have been due to him growing and being weak as a good run on the whole tends to be followed by a poor one – bar when he won two heavy ground races at Hexham on the trot very easily. He is a relatively young horse who has done very well for us by winning 6 to date.
Rated 65 on the flat (aw & turf) 113 hurdles
Doc has been running of late on the all weather at Southwell as it was thought he would be able to add to his tally of flat wins off his mark. However, he just doesn’t seem suited to it as he hates the kick back and so he is now being aimed at a novice chase. Ran over hurdles at M. Rasen and was travelling very well into home straight but stopped quite quick. Recommendation for rest until April and then back in work having had back checked out. Problem is he has been on the go for a long time now and also wants soft ground ! Not ideal so no shares are being sold for now.

With the sudden death of trainer Alan Swinbank, Sally has been granted a temporary licence to run the yard. Sally was Alan's partner and assistant trainer. Intentions are that Alan's wishes will be carried out regards the horses. Those in work will continue to be run as Alan believed there were some very nice horses this turf season to come through. Our own horse DEEP RESOLVE is next expected out in a novice chase. He does, however, need cut. It is a very sad time for all involved but the staff and whole team have pulled together and the job is getting done. As Sally said, The Boss would always put the horses first and it is her wish to do likewise for Alan and to get the best out of them which is what The Boss would have wanted.
