Mark Usher Racing

5-y-o plus Horses in Training

Honourable Knight

2008   Brown   Gelding
by Celtic Swing  ex  Deemeh  ( Brief Truce )

Owner:  Mrs T Channing-Williams

Bought by Mark as an 11 month old Yearling at Goffs in Ireland in February 2009 he has proved himself to be a fine servant for the Yard winning nine times and being placed 12 times from 55 starts.

As a six year old he had an excellent Summer in 2014 winning staying Handicaps at Lingfield and at Windsor but since then he had a series of injuries that kept him essentially off the track; he spent the Summer of 2016 with Elaine Chamberlain at Hollybush Farm with another resting person from the Yard, Bay Fortuna; he came back into work at Rowdown in the Autumn and Mark put him back on the track in a sixteen furlongs AW Handicap at Lingfield at the beginning of May where he ran well for a long way before getting tired; as long as his legs sustain it we can approach similar races with a degree of optimism over the Summer of 2017 and he is at the right end of the Handicap.

If you click here you will be able to see him very gamely winning at Lingfield in the first of his two wins of 2014 and here you can see him equally gamely following up at Windsor just four days later.
