Silver Stick was bred by Lord Manton with a good old fashioned steeplechasing pedigree. Foaled in 1987 he had a few runs on the flat but didn't begin to blossom until he was a five year old, losing his maiden tag when winning at Nottingham over hurdles.

He went on to win five times over timber, but his true talents came out over the bigger obstacles.

He loved Wetherby, winning at the West Yorkshire track four times, but his finest hour came at Sandown in the Grand Military Gold Cup. Eleven years old at the time, it proved to be his last victory, fittingly ridden by Milo Watson, the son of his breeder and owner, Lord Manton.

Silver Stick retired in 1999, having run 57 times and won 12 races. He was one of the best chasers we have had here at the yard, and at his peak was rated 133.

The full story of Silver Stick will be available in my book which is coming soon.
