Dee Pee Tee Cee raced for his whole career from our yard at Sheriff Hutton.
He arrived from Goffs Sales in Ireland as a foal and he cost just £2,000. He showed plenty of potential at home before he even saw a racecourse and he won on his two year old debut at Redcar in 1996, taking a selling race under jockey Gyles Parkin. Dee Pee Tee Cee quickly established himself as a stable favourite.
He was successful five times as a three year old with wins at Beverley (twice), Carlisle, Redcar and Musselburgh. His best season came in 1999 when he was five, winning six times, including two victories on our home track at York ridden by Terry Lucas.
In total he won 13 races, 11 on the flat and two over hurdles. His final win came over hurdles at Wetherby, and he was retired in 2004.
In his retirement Dee Pee Tee Cee has a wonderful home, being looked after by Jane Bedford near Scarborough, and is often ridden by her children.
Tee Cee earned almost £75,000 in prize money during his career which spanned nine seasons. He retired very sound he made the adjustment to away from racing very well.
