Tapis Libre's Story

A 16 times winner and a real favourite. Tapis Libre seems to enjoy travelling and has recorded wins at Redcar, Newcastle, Goodwood, Wolverhampton, Pontefract, Haydock, Epsom, Catterick and Musselburgh as well as York. Tapis was at the yard from being a baby until he left the yard in 2016. He was one of the highlights of the 2015 flat season before leaving to be trained by Jackie Coward, after which he won five races including the Ladies Derby at Epsom four times, and the Queen Mother's Cup at York. Tapis was retired in February 2021.

Name: 'Tapis libre' is French for 'free carpet'. Tapis Libre was originally owned by a carpet manufacturer!
