Gulf Of Poets was formerly trained by Dermot Weld in Ireland. He joined us at the end of 2015 and is a real trier and puts everything into his training and his racing. He opened his account for his new owners at Beverley in April 2016 when he was first home at rewarding odds of 33-1.

Gulf Of Poets won at Pontefract in 2017 and followed up in impressive style at Wolverhampton with an easy victory. He then made it a hat trick at Hamilton in June in the soft ground again ridden by Nathan Evans. The four timer came up at Haydock Park a week later. After his winter break Poets won first time out at Pontefract for Nathan Evans and followed up at Haydock a few days later where he won a £20000 handicap over a mile.

After a quiet spell Gulf of Poets was a winner at Hamilton in June 2021.

Away from racing he likes to spend his free time grazing in the field and playing in the puddles.
