We'll Deal Again was bred by Keith Wreglesworth and owned by a fantastic group of lads at the yard.
He was sired by Gentleman's Deal, our impeccably bred Winter Derby winner who we stood at Norton Grove Stud. His dam was the Emarati mare Emma Amour, who was placed for James Fanshawe before running for our yard. She was a feisty one, and was retired in 2000. Emma Amour had six foals, two of whom were winners: Indecision (foaled 2005) was a winner at Redcar in 2007, whilst her 2003 offsping, the grey Paris House filly Looking North, had showed promise for trainer Peter Grayson, but died at the age of three.
We'll Deal Again was by far the best of Emma Amour's foals. We knew him as 'Dealy'. Foaled on 14th April 2007 he ran a very smart race on his two year old debut at Ripon in May 2009 when finishing runner up at odds of 66/1. After three runs he was rated 68 and ran consistently from this mark without winning.
In June 2010 We'll Deal Again was gelded but did not win as a three year old despite again a string of placed runs. As a two and three year old he had run 18 times and made the frame on nine occasions!
It was April 2011, as a four year old, that We'll Deal Again first tasted success. Over five furlongs at Newcastle he came home first in the 'Sendrig Construction Handicap' ridden by Paul Mulrennan. In August he was a winner again, ridden by Graham Gibbons at Leicester. It was a very easy win, by four lengths, and his handicap mark was raised ten pounds for his efforts.
It was another year before he was a winner again, again ridden by Graham Gibbons. On soft ground he took the 'Follow totepool On Facebook And Twitter Handicap', winning on the line. The same partnership won again in October at Wolverhampton. We'll Deal Again had won on fast ground, soft ground and now on the all weather. His winning mark of 75 was the highest handicap mark that he was to win off in his career.
In August 2014 Barry McHugh was to ride We'll Deal Again to his final career win. This time in heavy ground he was first home in the 0-85 'Collect totepool Winnings At Betfred Shops Handicap' over six furlongs. Raised five pounds he was to record two further placed efforts before being retired in May 2015.
His final career earnings were just short of £30,000, with five wins and 19 placings from 54 runs. He had won on ground from heavy to good to firm and also the all-weather. A proper fun horse who could cope with any surface on which he was asked to run.
