Gloire d’Athon (aka “Glory”) is a very good looking, tall and imposing individual. Although only five, he has had a busy life, winning in France and then running 7 times in Ireland, including a win and four placed finishes. We bought him for Mrs Pitman in September 2021. He had shown significant ability but, given his size and age, we felt that he was due a break and so he didn’t race for us until January 2022. After four hurdles races for us, where he improved in each race and was placed on three occasions, including second twice, he then went chasing in June and won at Huntingdon on his debut. He has since followed up with a win over fences at Worcester in October 2022. He is an exciting prospect.
