Towbee's Story

Towbee was bred by Mrs Jarvis, by Doyen out of her Listed winning mare Bow Bridge. He ran four times as a two year old, never finishing out of the first four.

As with many of Bow Bridge's offspring he improved as he got older, and as a three year old he won three times. He lost his maiden tag at Redcar, winning a five furlong handicap off a mark of 60 in the hands of James Sullivan. Later in the season he recorded wins at Beverley and Chester. Rapidly rising up the weights he was rated 83 after his Chester victory. His final win came at Thirsk in May 2013, at odds of 18-1 off a mark of 77, earning him a five pound rise back up the weights. Again James Sullivan was his winning partner.

The key to Towbee was soft ground. Bow Bridge, and her dam Bow Peep, had reputations as mudlarks and Towbee followed the family tradition. He won twice on soft ground and twice on good to soft.

Towbee ran his last race in the UK in 2014 at Leicester, where he finished second, before leaving these shores to resume his racing career in Israel.

'He always won' was how his owner summed up his career in Israel before he retired a few years ago. Towbee is now spending his retirement with Adnan where is regularly ridden and enjoying life in his wonderful home.

Adnan says "I love him so much!"

We'd like to thank Adnan for providing Towbee with such a great home in Israel, and for sending us these pictures of him enjoying the sunshine.
