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

Gulf Of Poets opened his account for the 2017 season at Pontefract 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.

When he is not racing he loves to graze in the field and play in the puddles!
