Arrowtown's Story

A superb race mare by the 2006 Arc winner Rail Link and out of Protectress, a winning mare formerly trained by Sir Henry Cecil. She is from a superb family, and is a half sister to the incredible 28 times winner Stand Guard and also winners So Near So Farhh, Omnipresent, Conistone and Wafeira. Arrowtown is a stayer who has plenty of stamina. She is tough as teak and she always makes her presence known.

Arrowtown won her first race at Pontefract in September 2017 in heavy ground when she was given a brilliant ride by Harrison Shaw.

In September 2018 Arrowtown won the Hambleton Cup at Thirsk when she made the most of the softening ground. She followed up later in the month at Ayr where she won again in the mud to prove herself beyond two miles. She then completed a hat-trick at York where she won the Coral Stayers Handicap ridden by Nathan Evans.

Arrowtown was retired in 2019.
