Closely related to the 1999 Middle Park Stakes winner, Primo Valentino, Black Truffle has been a fine servant to both Saxon House and to Rowdown since arriving from Newmarket, on the recommendation of Hayley Turner, in the Autumn of 2012 having had just three runs for Michael Bell.
He is a classic AW horse having won seven times (and been placed another 19 times) from 56 starts for Mark on the artificial surfaces; he is a genuine and consistent person who does best being held up off a truly run race. He developed a bit of a problem with his front hooves during the Spring of 2016 and this has resulted in him having a long holiday to put him right. He came back into training in early 2017 and will be back on the track this spring. At six years old he is in his prime and with his feet sorted there will be no stopping him. He is just the kind of horse we wanted to support in the Mark Usher Racing Club and I'm sure this year he will repay all his supporters.
