ALMOST every point-to-point handler has a horse which has passed through their hands and gone on to better things. This gives the buyer confidence that they can produce the right type of horse to train on and get to the top. A track record as it were.

Few if any can match the record Andy Slattery has. On the flat he is responsible for a Royal Ascot winner in Judge The Moment along with group and listed winners in France. Recently, the Doncaster listed winning two-year-old Be Ready was also a graduate of this academy and is now with Godolphin. Cooldine, Invictus and Quel Esprit were all top class graduates in the NH world but as Cheltenham nears the record could get even better.
