Black Grass is a half brother to nine times winner Know No Fear, seven times winner Alluring Star and sixteen times winner Thoughtsofstardom. Black Grass ran consistently in his two year old season and lost his maiden tag at Catterick in April 2016. He followed up again at Catterick in June winning the Lionweld Kennedy Handicap and then completed a hat-trick at Redcar later the same month. Two days later at Wolverhampton he made his all weather debut and completed a four timer this time ridden by Cam Hardie.
Black Grass won first time out in 2017 at Ripon when he dead-heated to give Harriwon Shaw his first winner.
He is keeping the family tradition going by becoming another of Alustar's offspring to grace the winners' enclosure. We call him 'Ally'.
