Lightening Rod is a nine times winner. He is known to his friends as 'Rodney'. Rodney came to us when he was a foal, bought from Tattersalls Sales in the winter of 2005. He started his career in bumpers and won at Market Rasen and Doncaster. He is one of few horses to have won a bumper after going hurdling, when he won a 'jumpers bumper' at Southwell in 2010, one of the additional fixtures because of the long freeze and abandonment of weeks worth of jumps meetings.
Rodney has won five times over hurdles and once over fences.
His last wins came at Wetherby in October and December 2014. Rodney was a real yard favourite, having spent his whole career with us here in Sheriff Hutton.
